Does anyone remember the Author Judy Bloom?

She has written many novels for children and young adults which have exceeded sales of 80 million and been translated into 31 languages.[2] Blume's novels for teenagers were among the first to tackle such controversial matters as racism (Iggie's House), menstruation (Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret.), divorce (It's Not the End of the World, Just As Long As We're Together), bullying (Blubber), masturbation (Deenie; Then Again, Maybe I Won't) and teen sex (Forever- My favorit is God are you there? Whats yours?

  • I LOVED Judy Blume when I was growing up. I actually have a newer adult novel of hers that I found at a library book sale next in line on my bookshelf right now.

  • I lived on her books when I was growing up. Then Again, Maybe I Won't gave me a better understand of what the boys were going thru.  Are You There God It's Me Margaret gave me a better understanding of me. I also felt a kinship with Shiela Tubman from Otherwise Known as Sheila the Great.  But I must admit, I think my favorite was Tales of the Fourth Grade Nothing. Who could resist Peter and Fudge!

  • Yep I remember Judy Blume. As a matter of fact, I still have a copy of Forever on my bookshelf, which I will probably pass on to my daughter when she gets to high school (a long, long time from now).
