Book Description

1 Jan 1998

Life isn't easy for Margaret. She's moved away from her childhood home, she's starting a new school, finding new friends – and she's convinced she's not normal. For a start she hasn't got a clue whether she wants to be Jewish like her father or Christian like her mother. Everyone else seems really sure of who they are. And, worst of all, she's a 'late developer'. She just knows that all her friends are going to need a bra before she does. It's too embarrassing to talk to her parents about these things. So she talks to God instead - and waits for an answer . . .

Judy Blume has written some of the best books of our time about real-life issues – family stress and pressures, what happens when your parents divorce, the problems of growing up and sexual awakening, bereavement – with insight, sensitivity and honesty. The response of readers all around the world continues to make her one of the best-loved writers ever published.

More About the Author

Judy Blume spent her childhood in Elizabeth, NJ, making up stories inside her head. She has spent her adult years in many places, doing the same thing, only now she writes her stories down on paper. Adults as well as children will recognize such Blume titles as: Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret; Superfudge; Blubber; Just As Long As We're Together; and Forever. She has also written the best-selling novels Wifey; Smart Women; and, Summer Sisters. More than 75 million copies of her books have been sold, and her work has been translated into twenty-six languages.

She receives thousands of letters each month from readers of all ages who share their feelings and

concerns with her.

Judy received a B.S. in education from New York University in 1961, which named her a Distinguished Alumna in 1996, the same year that American Library Association honored her with the Margaret A. Edwards Award for Lifetime Achievement. She has won more than ninety awards, none more important than those coming directly from her youngest readers.

She serves on the boards of the Author's Guild, currently as Vice President; the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators, where she sponsors an award for contemporary fiction; and the National Coalition Against Censorship, working to protect intellectual freedom. In Spring 2002, Judy was a spokesperson for the Cheerios "A Book for Every Child" literacy campaign which benefited Reading is Fundamental, America's largest literacy organization. She is also the founder and trustee of The Kids Fund, a charitable and educational foundation.

Judy's first book in the Fudge series, Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing, was published in 1972. She is thrilled to be celebrating its 30th Anniversary with the publication of Double Fudge. Just as generations of fans have loved the Fudge books, generations of Judy's family have inspired them. Thirty years ago, Fudge was inspired by her son, Larry, and now Double Fudge was written at the request of her grandson, Elliot.

Judy lives on islands up and down the East Coast with her husband George Cooper. They have three grown children and one grandchild.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book rocks!! 25 Oct 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I first read this book a couple of years ago and I still haven't forgot it. Judy Blume is a great writer and manages to write a funny, realistic book for teenagers without the awful novelty and deals with seirous subjects too. eg one half of Margaret's family is jewish and the other christian and she feels she needs to be one or the other.
Buy this even if just for the one liners!

5.0 out of 5 stars I read this when I was 10 and never forgot it 30 Mar 2007
Format:Paperback
I read this book when I was 10, and couldn't put it down. I wasn't exactly an avid reader at that age, but it just drew me in and changed everything for me. I didn't forget it. It taught me things I was too shy to ask about, and was almost a friend to a 10 year old girl who was slightly confused about periods, boys, bras etc. but was also very intrigued and wanted to find out more.

I went on to read all the Judy Blume books, but not before I read this one a few times over. It warmly introduced me to a world that I wasn't quite sure how to ask about.

If you know any girls aged between about 8-13 definitely get them this. I'm sure they'll love it, and like me won't forget it.

This book will always have a special place in my heart!

5.0 out of 5 stars My favourite book! 12 Jan 2002
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This is a really good book. I enjoyed it. I became gripped to the story as soon as I started it. If you are a young teenager and you want a book to relate to, this is the story to read. The book reminds me of my friends and I and what we think about in life. Things which you may think are serious are written to be funny and it puts a whole different light on growing up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic book for the pre-teens 23 Nov 2004
Format:Paperback
I first read this book when I was about 11. At the time I was going through all the usual "growing up" experiences and desperately wanted to be a woman, well before my time. This excellent book by Judy Blume gave me the insight that being a woman, will come at its own natural pace, and of course I didn't have to wait very long. It's lighted hearted ways of dealing with normal pre-teen problems, which come with all the highs and lows in life, is so meaningful and so poignant. I still have the book, which I read only a few months ago.
Even 20 years later, it's still a fantastic read, and took me back to being a child again. Well done Judy Blume for keeping me a sane 11 year old!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The one that got me hooked... 2 Aug 2002
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This was the first Judy Blume book I read. I was about 11 at the time, and I was so engrossed I read it in one sitting. There are no long winded passages, the book gets straight to the point involving you immediately, and takes you on a delightful journey through an important part of Margaret's life as she grows up. There are no heavy duty storylines in this, but it really doesn't need any. It's the perfect book for young teenagers to read as Judy Blume seems to be 'inside the head' of anyone that age, and so they are able to relate to it perfectly.
For me, 'Are you there God? It's me, Margaret' was just the beginning. I went on to read them all - and at 27, I still pick them up now and again, for some much loved nostalgia!

5.0 out of 5 stars The truth about teenagers 19 Dec 2003
Format:Paperback
I am a 12 year old girl and am like any other girl of my age,insecure. Reading this book brings a smile to your face because as you read it you match your everyday problems to the ones in the book. I could give every character in this book a name because each one was like me a friend or even a family member.It makes you want to read it again and again.

5.0 out of 5 stars review by jessica neal age 9 14 Jun 2006
Format:Paperback
This book is about a girl who goes to live in new jersey. I thought it was fantastic. It helps me with my fear of having a period. It was very humourous to read. I would recomend it to people having/getting their period.
