Iggie's house just wasn't the same. Iggie was gone, moved to Tokyo. And there was Winnie, cracking her gum on Grove Street, where she'd always lived, with no more best friend and two weeks left of summer.

Then the Garber family moved into Iggie's house -- two boys, Glenn and Herbie, and Tina, their little sister. The Garbers were black and Grove Street was white and always had been. Winnie, a welcoming committee of one, set out to make a good impression and be a good neighbor. That's why the trouble started.

Glenn and Herbie and Tina didn't want a "good neighbor." They wanted a friend.

    " I recently re-read this classic after my daughter received it from her summer reading program. It was a quick and easy read. Although the book is somewhat dated, the message is timeless. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Summer | 2/17/2014

    " The characters aren't developed as fully as they could be, and the book ends abruptly with no resolution. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katie | 2/9/2014

    " But, it certainly is dated now. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jordan | 1/28/2014

    " This book was ok i didnt really care about them being different because their black theres really no difference. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chelsea Bourmatnov | 1/18/2014

    " The people are being really mean to the new people how moved into Igge's house. The new neighbors are black, so people hate them. It's not fair just cause they are black. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Luci | 1/2/2014

    " I did not like this book and that's all I have to say. Not intresting.I like other books by this author though, like Freckle Juice. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mel | 1/2/2014

    " made me appreciate how controversial judy was in her heyday. not one of my faves, but i love that she put racial issues out there for kids to think about. judy rules all! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Philip | 11/18/2013

    " Amazingly entertaining but educational book for kids. I read it when I was about 6 and loved it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tess | 11/2/2013

    " I have been an avid fan of Judy Blume and this book takes a bold step in voicing out on racial discrimination. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aidan | 9/14/2013

    " This is one of the few Judy Blume books I never read when I was a kid, probably because it would have been the most comforting to me personally as one of the few YA representations of a gender nonconforming character. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ke Huang | 9/12/2013

    " This was one of the first books that I read that concerned race relations in America. Therefore, I didn't understand the full impact of the story. Yet I still liked the book for its portrayal of the characters as full individuals. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andy | 8/7/2013

    " I remember reading this book when I was ten. I stumbled across it at my local library recently and decided to pick it up. I think it actually holds up well, even after all of these years. Probably because humanity will always struggle to accept and deal with each other and our perceived differences. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erin | 7/6/2013

    " Pretty sappy rendition of race relations in the early sixties. Nice and tidy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marie | 10/2/2012

    " A great example of how kids fight to end bad things that are happening in the world like racism . "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pam | 6/21/2012

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sally | 5/25/2012

    " Dear Winnie, she means well! Horrifying to read in parts, lovely in others. Very 'different' for me, as an Australian in the 80s and 90s to read as well. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robert | 12/17/2011
