Another Judy Blume classic about dealing with changes, and racial and cultural differences between neighbors and friends. An honest expression about tolerance, not just pablum.
A great coming of age book about friendship and life lessons.
Winnie's best friend Iggie moves away, and now Iggie's house is occupied by a new family... a black family. They are the first black family to ever live on Winnie's street.
Winnie is the only one to try and welcome them, and that is when the trouble starts. The kids in Iggie's house don't want to be welcomed... they want a friend.
Sweet Reading, Good Moral.
