Product Description

Judy Blume's sensitive yet honest novel about racism, and how you cope with knowing your parents are wrong. Now available in ebook for the first time to correspond with Judy's visit to the UK. Winnie's best friend, Iggie, has just moved away - and Winnie's bored out of her mind without her. So she's determined to be friends with the new family, the Garbers, who've moved into Winnie's old house - especially Glenn, who's kind of cute. But certain people don't want the Garbers to be there, and have started a petition to get rid of them. You see Glenn and his family are black, and Grove Street is stuck in the past. And the toughest thing of all is that Winnie's terrified her parents might sign the petition - and there's nothing she can do to stop them.

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.

The main character is Winnie, a female teenager whose best friend Iggie moves away. A new family moves in from Detroit and most of the neighbours object to have a black family in thier 'hood. Iggie does her best and becomes very good friends with the 3 children. Neighbours do thier best to make thier live hell and try to get them to move out. One neighbour in particular is a very obnoxius lady who goes around the houses in Winnie's neighbour-hood with petition and pracitly forcing neighbours to sign it. Winnie starts up her own petition to find out what other people's views on skin colour.
I definatly thought this was a great read and really faced the point of racism. An excellent read definatly a well worth buy!

I first read this book about two years ago. It is basically about a girl called Winnie whose best friend moves away. A family move into the house, but they are black. Winnie makes friends with the three children but the rest of the residents object to having black people in their street. I am a great fan of Judy Blume but didn't find this book as interesting as her others.

4.0 out of 5 stars Terrific Storyline 4 April 2009
Format:Paperback
Iggie's best friend has moved house. Who are the next door neighbours? Black Africans. Iggie's street has always been white. Will Iggie befriend her new neighbours, or will their race stop her? Good storyline with a nice American twang.
