Starring Sally J. Freedman as Herself by Judy Blume

From Barnes and Noble:
"Who do you tell when you're certain that Hitler is alive, retired, and living in Miami Beach?

It's 1947, and Sally J. Freedman full of wild ideas. She's got her eye on handsome Peter Hornstein, the Latin lover of her dreams...on hold Mr. Zavodsky, who looks suspiciously like Hitler in disguise...and on her father, who Sally misses terribly. There are so many things to worry and wonder about. But whatever happens, Sally's school year in Miami Beach will certainly be exciting—and absolutely unforgetable."

From ME:
The book follows Sally, her mom, her grandma, and her brother down to Florida for a winter. The book centers around her meeting new friends and having funny fantasies/daydreams. She loves to solve mysteries. I just find her to be a really funny character. She feels like she needs to know everything, which is something I related to and still relate to. It's very possible that I still like the book so much, because I enjoyed it when I was younger. Sometimes, I read and watch things that I loved when I was younger and wonder if I'd like them so much if I were finding them for the first time today. I enjoy it still and find it funny though! I finished it in a day, so it's not heavy reading! Also, it's a very pre-puberty girl book.

If you are looking for a light funny read, I'd definitely recommend it, although it's quick so it won't last you that long!
