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 Brilliant! 1 Dec 2001
Format:Paperback
"Here's To You, Rachel Robinson" follows on from "Just As Long As We're Together", narrated by Rachel's best friend Stephanie. Rachel is a straight-A student, talented musician and incredibly gifted 13-year-old. But she's also endearingly human, and that's what you'll love about her. Rachel remains my favourite fictional character to date, and I first read this book more than five years ago.
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing! 17 April 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I had heard all about Judy Blume books and decided to actually read one. I had already read JUST AS LONG AS WE'RE TOGETHER,BLUBBER, ITS NOT THE END OF THE WORLD and ARE YOU THERE GOD? ITS ME, MARGARET and was amazed by Judy blumes way of knowing the exact way we are thinking.To her friends eyes Rachel lives a perfect life. A straight A student,almost professional musician, and with a loving family they dont see the problems Rachel faces. They dont know that the show her obnoxious disruptive older good looking brother puts on when their there is a show and they dont know what misery he puts her family through. The book expresses wildly and brilliantly the emotion Rachel would be feeling. A brilliant sequel to the first about the three friends, JUST AS LONG AS WE'RE TOGETHER.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Read! 15 Oct 2014
Format:Paperback
Rachel is a child prodigy. She's the youngest of three children and achievements are important in her family. Rachel is the smartest one at home, which makes her feel extremely pressured. Everyone is expecting so much of her and it means she has to do a lot of extra activities, because people think she'll be good at them. It's a compliment, but all of this is making Rachel feel stressed and tense as well. When her brother comes home from boarding school her worries increase. Her friends seem to love him and there's nobody she can talk to about her anxiety, she's especially scared when he's making fun of her as she has no idea how to handle the situation. Is her brother really a bad person or is he just different?

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars You'll Love It! 1 Aug 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Dear Readers, You have to know something before you read this review. I'm not a great book - lover. Oh well, I read this book anyway and this is what i thought of it..... This book follows on from another book by Judy Blume which is called 'Just as Long as We're Together' so I recommend that you read that book first. Once you've read that book, you will keep the plot (which is very good) in your mind so you don't have to read them straight after one another. Anyway, this book is about a young teenage girl called Rachel. She is the A* student of her class and has always been the perfect one in her family, but, this doesn't mean that she doesn't have her fair share of problems......Her brother, Charles is the trouble - maker in the Robinson Family and is trying to make Rachel's life a living hell. The thing is, no matter how clever Rachel is, she just can't figure out why... This book is written as Rachel and 'Just as Long as We're Together' is written as Rachel's friend, Steph. This book is great which you can't actually say that often these days and I would recomend it to all of my mates! Thanks for reading this review Amazon readers! By the way, just as a final note, this book is NOT recomended by me for BOYS! I hope you buy and enjoy this book, you'll love it! Love From Kt xXx ENJOY! :)

I read all Judy Blume's books when I was younger (I'm now 21) and even though Here's To You Rachel Robinson is for younger readers, I had to read it. It's more or less a sequel to Just As Long As We're Together, which was my favourite book during my teens, and I am amazed at how Judy can write from the mind of any teenager or child - even if they're gifted, like Rachel in this book. From her friends' point of view, Rachel doesn't have any problems, but what other people see as advantages, Rachel sees as setbacks - such as being in Enriched Maths and having an older brother who constantly bugs her. This is another classic book from Judy Blume, and all teenage girls should read it!
