I did joy reading this book the characters were very interested and they really draw you into the story. I did dislike the story because of some very awkward moments Judy Blume mentioned. I gave the book and overall of three stars because the reading was absolutely excellent but the story was just ok.

Listening to this book brought back so many memories. My momwasn't thrilled with my reading Jody Blume books, and now I do think some of the content about masturbation is somewhat unnecessary. However, Blume captures teen angst perfectly. Back then, reading Deenie brought on new meaning when a friend had to wear a brace for scoliosis. The experience made me realize that knowledge about a disease can help me be more compassionate to the afflicted...an understanding that has carried over into a nursing career.
Re-listening to Deenie now, I still found the book entertaining. The narrator does a superb job. There is a timeless quality to Blume's writing that keeps her books relevant even 40 years later. A relaxing listen for all ages.
