Money, friends, and what happens to children when a family unexpectedly gets rich. The difference is huge, but life in the fast lane isn’t necessarily better; in fact there’s a whole set of complications that need to be unravelled in order for pressures and stresses to be alleviated. Judy Blume is one of America’s leading children’s authors and her ability to confront and deal with sensitive teenage issues in a way in which teenagers can relate is something to behold.

His dad's an electrician with a sideline in inventing useless things, and three generations of the Miglione family fill a small house in New Jersey - until Tony's dad invents something that makes them rich. Money makes a big difference.
