The Lovereading4Kids comment

Judy Blume is a past-master at communicating with teenagers over complex life issues that many other authors are wary of bringing in to their writing. She writes in a simple, straightforward and realistic style which every reader I’ve introduced to her writing absolutely loves. Deenie is a tale of courage and bravery: the chief protagonist will give every teenager the confidence to deal with any problem thrown at them. It’s a really great read and a book that teenagers will recommend to all their friends.We’ve also picked out one of Judy Blume’s other titles so why not try it too. It’s called Then Again, Maybe I Won't.

Synopsis

Deenie by Judy Blume

Mrs. Fenner has very fixed ambitions for her daughters. Deenie is 13 years old and gorgeous. Her mother wants her to be a model - but Deenie's not so sure. So, when she's diagnosed with scoliosis - curvature of the spine - Deenie's almost relieved. No more traipsing round modelling agencies, no more living up to her mother's expectations. But, she has to wear an ugly, uncomfortable back brace for the next four years. And, she's convinced that it will put an end to normal teenage life - including her blossoming relationship with Buddy Brader...
