Then Again Maybe I Won’t by Judy Blume
This is a boys’ book! Boys’ books with this realistic life theme are very rare, and so, even though it was written several years ago (1971), it might be one of the few that speaks to adolescent male issues. (It is interesting to read the mixed reviews on written by adolescent girls who read the book!) Tony deals with changes within his family, with new friends who apply peer pressure, and with his own burgeoning sexuality. I would confidently hand it to any boys when they reach fifth or sixth grade.
