Judy Blume Deenie is about a young 13 year old girl who is striving to reach great things in life. She had gotten scoliosis. She has to wear a body brace for four years. Deenie is thinking about having a modeling career right after she has her brace taken off. Deenie's mom Thelma was very strict. She was strict because she wanted Deenie to be a model and she wanted her other sister Helen to keep her grades up so she could either be a doctor or a lawyer someday.
