When Deenie sees the brace for the first time, she wants to scream, Forget it… I’m never going to wear that thing. Everyone will know. Everyone!
But the words won’t come out. And Deenie, beautiful Deenie, who everyone says should be a model, is stuck wearing a brace from her neck to her hips. For four years-or longer. How will she ever face the hard times ahead?
I was expecting to like this book. I had heard from numerous people about the marvelous wonders of Judy Blume books, but there was little to nothing I liked about Deenie. I found the characters to be annoying and the story was not enticing. I found myself bored, and the book is only 144 pages!
