Plot summary, from the Simon & Schuster site:
Judy Blume’s quintessential tale of sibling rivalry is as funny as ever—and has a fresh new look!
When an eight-year-old girl and her six-year-old brother take turns describing each other, it’s no surprise that “The Pain” and “The Great One” are the nicknames that emerge. As this duo debates whom Mom and Dad love most, their competition becomes increasingly humorous—because when it comes to family affection, there’s no such thing as win or lose.
