The Lovereading4Kids comment

Best-selling Judy Blume has made her reputation by writing books which show the world from a child’s point of view. She is skilful at catching how children see the world and how they make sense of it and deal with it. Tony’s story is an interesting one. Newly and unexpectedly wealthy, his family move into a smarter neighbourhood. While his parents are thrilled, Tony finds adjusting hard. In particular, he knows that Joel, the boy who lives next door, is not to be trusted despite the excellent manners he impresses Tony’s parents with. When Joel steps over the line, Tony has to make a brave choice. Money’s nice but however much you’ve got having good values and being true to yourself is far, far more important.

Then Again, Maybe I Won't by Judy Blume

Tony Miglione is thirteen. His dad's an electrician with a sideline in inventing useless things, and three generations of the Miglione family fill a small house in New Jersey - until Tony's dad invents something that makes them rich. Money makes a big difference. The family move to a luxury home in Long Island, Mr. Miglione gets a prestigious new job; Mrs. Miglione gets rich new friends; Grandma gets a colour television in her room; Tony gets a view of the gorgeous girl next-door, who undresses with the light on, a pair of binoculars, and anxiety attacks...Being rich brings him a whole new set of complicated problems.

America's number one children's author has written some of the best books of our time about real-life issues - family stress and pressures, what happens when your parents divorce, the problems of growing up and sexual awakening, bereavement - with insight, sensitivity and honesty. The response of readers all around the world continues to make her one of the best-loved writers ever published.
