Rachel is the youngest in a family of high-achievers. She's also the cleverest. But it's not easy being super-intelligent - especially when her errant older brother insists on disturbing the peace and undermining everything she ever says or does. And her best friends seem to be falling for his charming veneer.

Rachel's brother Charles is a bit of a troublemaker. Although his comments on paper don't sound overly dramatic, as other reviewers have mentioned, when you imagine living with someone so hostile you understand their reactions. Either that, or Judy Blume is commenting on how a perfect family react to an average teenager and how they really can't cope in the way that others might be able to. It's up for debate.
Charles returns home from boarding school and sends family life out of kilter, but there are other things going on in Rachel's life. Too many extracurricular activities threaten to overwhelm her, and she has developed a crush on Charles's tutor Paul. Meanwhile Jeremy Dragon (of the famed chartreuse dragon jacket, as anyone who's read "Just As Long..." will remember) is developing an interest in her.
I loved this book. I still love it. I strongly recommend that you buy it for the overachiever in your life. Trust me, they'll appreciate it.
Rachel is such a serious girl. There isn't much room in her life for fun. She can't seem to loosen up. I felt so sorry for this girl as she had so much potential, but she couldn't enjoy it. Here's To You Rachel Robinson made me think about gifted children and what's often being expected of them. Being talented and special seems to be what everybody wants. This book shows in a beautiful way how it is when you have the gifts that so many people desire to have. It isn't an easy life and Rachel has to learn how to choose at a very young age. She also has to learn how to solve her own problems and how to make things easier for herself. That is a lot for someone that young and she made me feel proud. I loved this book, it's very insightful and I think the story might be helpful for children who are in the same situation as Rachel.
