Back In The Day

Sally J. Freedman as Herself


I can’t tell you how much I adored this book and many other Blume books as a child. I vividly remember reading this book until the spine was all broken and the edges were in tatters. I think I loved this one because Sally reminded me so much of myself as a kid. She had the most overactive imagination, and often dreamed of escaping from concentration camps and catching Hitler. When Sally and her family move to Miami from New Jersey post WWII, Sally has a a bit of a time getting adjusted.

I remember her being stung by a jellyfish, insisting on coming home for lunch each day, and having the biggest crush on her ‘Latin Lover’, Peter Hornstein. Never mind the fact that Peter happens to be White. She was also convinced that her neighbor Mr. Zavodsky was Adolf Hitler hiding out in disguise in Miami. Since he looked like Hitler and always offered the kids in her building candy, she was sure she had found him. She spied on him and wrote him letters (that she never sent) letting him know she was onto him and would be turning him into the police soon. Ahhhh, Sally was a dear and I loved her story. This is probably one of the first ‘historical’ fiction books I’ve ever read, and remembering it just makes me want to go back and read it all over again.

New Breaking Dawn Trailer.  And I must say Jacob is looking QUITE scrumptious with his face stubble.  Enjoy!

  1. I’m pretty sure I never read this one. It doesn’t look familiar. But I think I’m in love with this character anyway. I couldn’t help but smile when you said she was convinced that she had found Adolf Hitler. Hilarious 🙂

  2. I refuse to watch it (I want to be surprised) but I did see those pics of him with stubble. So cute!

      I can completelr understand that JuJu. But I couldn’t resist. It’s crazy that the release date is only a couple months away. i remember thinking when they first said the date that it was a long time to wait.

    I really enjoy Judy Blume books, but for the life of me I don’t remember this one. It sounds great. I’m going to go search for it on Amazon for my daughter. She loves Judy Blume too. Thanks for sharing and making me aware of nice treasure.
