Sally investigates post-WWII Florida with theatrical flair in this classic middle grade novel from Judy Blume. Now with a fresh new look!

Sally J. Freedman was ten when she made herself a movie star. She would have been happy to reach stardom in New Jersey, but in 1947 her older brother Douglas became ill, so the Freedman family traveled south to spend eight months in the sunshine of Florida. That’s where Sally met her friends Andrea, Barbara, Shelby, Peter, and Georgia Blue Eyes—and her unsuspecting enemy, Adolf Hitler.

Dear Chief of Police:
You don’t know me but I am a detective from New Jersey. I have uncovered a very interesting case down here. I have discovered that Adolf Hitler is alive and has come to Miami Beach to retire. He is pretending to be an old Jewish man...

While she watches and waits, and keeps a growing file of letters under her bed, Sally’s Hitler will play an important—though not quite starring—role in one of her grandest movie spectaculars.

Why, just last night I shampooed her hair …” “Look, Mrs. Freedman … don’t take this personally … you’ve been traveling … you’re in another part of the country … she could have picked them up anywhere … it’s very common … that’s why we check the new children so carefully … she’s not alone …” Mom shook her head. “You don’t understand.” “Take her home and use

the treatment,” the nurse said, “and in a few days I’ll be happy to check her again.” When Sally heard the word treatment her throat tightened and tears came to her eyes. “I hate it here!” Sally and Mom were walking home from school. “I hate the nurse and the school and Miami Beach!” She bit her lip to keep from crying. Mom said, “Listen, honey … that nurse is crazy … she doesn’t know what she’s talking about. You don’t have nits. And we’ll never tell anyone about it, okay?” “Then I don’t

Dear Doey-bird, I miss you very much. Miami Beach is not as great as the ads say. I have a lot to tell you. The nurse wouldn’t let me into school because she says I have nits. Do you know what they are? Douglas says they’re cooties but I don’t believe him. I have this special ointment on my hair now. It’s blue and pretty disgusting. I hope it doesn’t make my hair fall out. I’m trying to think of this as an adventure, like you said, but so far, it doesn’t seem like one because everything is

Sally’s school had sent a notice to each classroom, warning the kids not to go into Union Woods anymore. That afternoon Sally had asked Douglas, “Do you know about the strange man in Union Woods?” and Douglas had answered, “Sure.” “What kind of strange man is he?” Sally said. “What do you mean?” Douglas asked. “Is he a murderer or a kidnapper or what?” “He’s just strange,” Douglas told her. “What does that mean?” “You know …” “No, I don’t!” “Well … he’s kind of crazy,” Douglas said. “Oh,

the skin on her fingers and toes got crinkly. The pain eased up and soon she could move her fingers again. The family took turns sitting in the bathroom with her. She didn’t mind because she was still wearing her bathing suit. Besides, she was grateful for the company. She watched as Mom filed her nails, as Ma Fanny worked on her afghan, and as Douglas blew the insides out of an egg. “You were pretty brave,” Douglas said, pausing for a breath. “You really surprised me.” “I screamed in the
