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 The Book I Kept Reading as a Teenager.... 22 Sep 2004
By A Customer
I read Just as Long as We're Together several times throughout my teens and still own it in my collection now, many years later. As with most of Judy Blumes books, it's a fictional story based on Steph who leads the life of a typical teenager and is tackling the typical problems a teenager faces - problems with friendships new & old, boy issues, puberty, divorse and a tiny bit of world peace. Judy Blume has written lots of books aimed at kids, teenagers and adults all of which are close to reality and all help inform and educate the reader. This book was definitely my favourite. Well worth a read, or two.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 stars 1 Aug 2001
This book has been very well written. it discribes what fun it is to be a 13 year old girl as well as the many problems of being 13 too. This book is not at all superficial and is written to fit the average kind of girl.when stephanie has two best friends things are great at first. Towards the middle of the book that when you get all the problems of having two best friends, secrets are being kept from eachother.All three three of them have a leval of secrecy and confusion and lies. but stephanie has the biggest secret of all. the book is topped off with the humar with funny lines and catchy comments. This book also has a deeper meaning which judy blume explores thoroughly. This is a very good book!

4.0 out of 5 stars An extremely valuable worthwhile and cool read 23 May 2003
By A Customer
It's a classic tale of friendship but totally modernised and not at all boring - with quirks and ebbs and flows - basically with the Judy Blume touch. It's a Judy Blume book and if you appreciate her other works such as 'It's not the end of the world' and such like, you will undoubtedly like this one.
Personally, I think the main character Stephanie a beautiful character and its just a really enjoyable read. From someone that seems to be living in the mind of a teenager.
Its especially good for teenagers, although I think it has a timeless appeal to all ages.

4.0 out of 5 stars A book about growing up 31 July 2013
By Katie
This is a book about growing up. Three girls, Rachel, the genius, Alison, the actress' daughter and Stephanie, the ordinary girl with an absent father work through the difficulties of life and relationships.

I can't say too much about the story without spoiling it but Stephanie thinks her parents have a perfect relationship but in actual fact they are struggling and on the verge of breaking up. Alison just wants to get along with everyone and manages it by being herself. Later in the book she has a family challenge of her own to get through. Rachel struggles with being intelligent and her self assurance is no where near as confident as her school work.

This book is very slow to start but a few chapters in it becomes very readable and enjoyable. Most teenage girls would identify with one of these characters in some way or other.

Overall - worth a read.
