    Description


    Scoliosis twists Deenie's plans for seventh grade in this classic Judy Blume novel with a fresh new look.

    Deenie's mother wants her to be a model, with her face on magazine covers--maybe even in the movies--but Deenie wants to spend Saturdays with her friends Janet and Midge, tracking Harvey Grabowsky, the captain of the football team, around Woolworth's. She wants to be a cheerleader, too, and go to the seventh-grade mixer to hear Buddy Brader play his drums.

    Instead, Deenie is diagnosed with scoliosis. And that means body stockings to squeeze into, a roomful of strangers to face, and a terrifying brace that she'll need to wear for years that goes from her neck to her hips. Suddenly Deenie has to cope with a kind of specialness that's frightening--and might be hers forever.
