From the Publisher
Who do you tell when you're certain that Hitler is alive, retired, and living in Miami Beach?
It's 1947, and Sally J. Freedman full of wild ideas. She's got her eye on handsome Peter Hornstein, the Latin lover of her dreams...on hold Mr. Zavodsky, who looks suspiciously like Hitler in disguise...and on her father, who Sally misses terribly. There are so many things to worry and wonder about. But whatever happens, Sally's school year in Miami Beach will certainly be exciting--and absolutely unforgetable. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
From the Inside Flap
When Sally's family moves to Miami Beach for the winter of 1947, she is excited and nervous at the same time. What will school be like in Florida? Will she make any friends? Will she fit in so far away from home?
Miami Beach has so many things to worry and wonder about, Sally is in for one unforgettable winter! --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Although World War II has just ended, ten-year-old Sally is still preoccupied with Hitler. She writes stories about her cousin, who died in his camps, and even thinks her new neighbor just might be Hitler in disguise.
I loved bright, inquisitive Sally and all her creativity. I too wrote stories of peril when I was her age. STARRING SALLY J FREEDMAN AS HERSELF is a slice of life, period piece, one of Judy Blume's earliest and most autobiographical novel. As an adult, I enjoyed the story, but I have a hard time seeing most kids enjoying this story, because almost nothing happens. Today's kids seem more interested in books with more tension and action. Even Sally's dynamic personality can't make make up for a nonexistent plot.
Sally's age probably means the YA crowd won't be drawn to STARRING SALLY J FREEDMAN AS HERSELF, which is too bad because a discussion of post WWII America for Jewish families would dovetail nicely into history lessons. I wish Blume had delved into some of the antisemitism any Jewish people experienced as well.
