Plot summary, from the Simon & Schuster site:

"Can Freddy leap past his middle-child malaise? This classic story from Judy Blume has a fresh new look!

Freddy Dissel has two problems. One is his older brother, Mike. The other is his younger sister, Ellen. That leaves Freddy in the middle, feeling like the peanut butter part of a sandwich, squeezed between two pieces of bread like a great big middle nothing.
