Deenie by Judy Blume

Deenie was written by Judy Blume in 1973.

When Deenie finds out she has a deformation of the spine called scoliosis and sees the brace she must wear 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?
