Winnie shoved a second piece of gum into her mouth. She crushed the wrapper in her fist and flicked it over her shoulder. A long low sigh escaped from somewhere inside her. (from the first line)
When a black family with three children moves into the white neighborhood, 11-year-old Winnie learns the difference between being a good neighbor and being a good friend.
Annotation:
Winnie Barringer feels lonely because her best friend, Iggie, has moved away. When the Garber family moves into Iggie's old house, Winnie is happy to learn that they have three children. She enthusiastically welcomes the Garbers, but not everyone on the block is happy with their new neighbors--the first African-American family to move into the area. Judy Blume wrote IGGIE'S HOUSE in the late 1960s while she was a student at New York University's School of Continuing Education. Certainly reflecting the feelings and tensions sparked by the American civil rights movement, IGGIE'S HOUSE is the work that took Blume from the picture books she had been writing to the realistic novels that have since become her hallmark.
Author Bio
Judy Blume
Judy Blume is one of the most popular authors of children's books. Her writings have won a large number of awards, many of which were selected and voted on by children. Blume is known for her honest and frank dealings with subjects important to emerging adolescents such as teenage sexuality, including masturbation and menstruation. Her presentation of these topics has also made her one of the most frequently censored authors for young people. In 1981, her desire to give young people the right to information access led to the creation of the Kids Fund, which gives grants to non-profit organizations that serve young people. She was given the Carl Sandburg Freedom to Read Award in 1984 and the American Civil Liberties Union Award in 1986. She also received the 1995 Margaret A. Edwards Award for Outstanding Literature for Young Adults--special mention was made of her book FOREVER.

Praise

Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"The purpose [is] worthy, and the most perceptive aspect of the book is the interpretation of the black family."
