In Praise of Judy Blume

I love this article singing the praises of one of my favorite childhood authors, Judy Blume. It was written by Diablo Cody, screenwriter of the much-adored movie Juno. Check it out here!

My top three Judy Blume books (with the covers as they were when I read them!):

Are You There God, It’s Me Margaret

Of course this is my favorite! I read this one like 10 times during my tumultuous adolescence. And yes, I tried the exercise (to no avail.)

Tiger Eyes

I first read this in fifth grade, and couldn’t stop crying!

Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing

I actually loved all five of the Fudge books, but just picked the first to represent the rest. This one served as my introduction to the great Ms. Blume!
