Freckle Juice - Judy Blume This book made me uncomfortable as a child and it still does. So a poor gullible child obsessively wants something that is both unattainable and worthless (freckles); an unscrupulous classmate notices this and takes advantage of it; when the promise proves fraudulent, the gullible child tries to salvage his pride by pretending it worked, and publicly humiliates himself in the process. Great.
