The Magazine of The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America


From the bookshelf: Guest reviewer

Sally J. Freedman felt like a fish out of water when she suddenly had to move to Miami in the 1940s.

In the book, Starring Sally J. Freedman as Herself by Judy Blume (Doubleday Dell Publishing Group, 1977), Sally, her mom and her grandmother relocate for the summer with her brother to improve his health. Sally's father must stay behind in New Jersey to work.

A new apartment, new school and friends, eccentric neighbors and World War II provide challenges for Sally. She learns to have faith in God, and that being with loved ones is more important than where she lives.
