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.

...yes, Judy Blume has written another beautifully written novel that touches and inspires. Even the hardest of hearts will have to avoid getting a tear in their eye as you read of Davy's journey to conquer her grief over her father's death.
Davy's father is killed after a raid on his store and she is by his side as he dies. The book concentrates on when Davy's family move to Mexico for a year to live with Davy's aunt and uncle.
As with most Judy Blume books I've read, things are focused on what happens inside the main character (Davy), so don't expect a flashy, excessively dramatic plot. This is a book about growing up with a difference- when you somethimes have to do it the hard way.
Judy Blume's characters are always flawless and this is no exception- Davy is undeniably human and not perfect.

I am 24, and must have been 13 when I read this book, but it really stuck in my mind as a truly excellent book.
Judy Blume books are classics for girls between 12-15, each dealing with sensitive issues perfectly.
This book deals with the death of a family member, and the complicated grief process which ensues. It deals sensitively with the issues of life, mortality and death in a way which girls can understand. I sat in tears with this book. It really is very emotionally demanding, but it is really an excellent book. Highly recommended read.

I love Judy Blume, there's just something about her. She really writes a good story. I read this quite recently after I read 'P.S. I Love You' by Cecila Ahern because I was really disappointed by that book and I wanted to compare the two books as they both have the theme of death and grieving. I was NOT disappointed by this book. Whereas I didn't feel sorry for the main character in 'P.S. I Love You', I really felt empathetic towards Davey, the main character.
This book was so much more realistic. It starts with 15 year old Davey grieving, but still acting confused about the death of her father. The dialogue is written in a different way to 'P.S. I Love You', is simply states 'I just felt like sleeping so I got into bed. I stayed there for 11 days'. Whereas the other book described each day by moaning 'I am so sad' etc.
Davey's emotions aren't as clearly written in stone, however they are described by the symptoms. I.e. she faints and doesn't know why and it is revealed she is hyperventalating due to grief. This matter of factness and symtoms of grief rather than straightforward 'I am so sad' is what makes the book so much more mature and well written.
I also found the story much more realistic by the fact that she went to school only about a week after, and then moved as they found it too hard. This is much more realistic as people want to get on with their lives but just find they can't, rather than taking an entire year off. The fact that there are sub-plots show how the grief affects Davey's life in other ways, like her disrespecting her Uncle.
A great read!!!

This novel deals with the drastic change of a teenage girl's life when her father is killed suddenly. You sympathise with davey and soon realise the true meaning of this novel, change and how things for Davey can never be the same again. This is mirored by the intriging young man she meets at the canyon.Davey soon realises that they have a lot in common and most importantly he feels her pain.

I have read this book for the module Young Adult Literature as part of my teacher-training course and it has made a deep impression on me.
The story is about a young teenager, Davey, whose father is brutally murdered during a robbery. Her mother decides to take Davey and her younger brother to New Mexico where they can stay with her sister- and brother-in-law. Davey meets a stranger whilst hiking in the mountains who calls himself Wolf and he calls her tiger-eyes. Davey tells everybody that her father has died from a heart attack but is eventually able to tell her therapist what really happened to her father. I was shocked when I finally read her story about that night because I never expected Davey to be so involved. Judy Blume has written a very real to life story that will surely appeal to a wide age group. This book deals with losing a loved one, being in love, teenage sexuality and teenage life. I surely recommend this to anybody, as it is a great story!

I read this book as a teenager, it was the first book that had ever made me cry. The emotions that it uncovered helped me cope with my own grief, of losing a member of my family. It made me feel normal, it helped me let go. A true guide to the passage to adulthood.

Like another of the reviewers I read this book when I was about 13 or 14.It is one of my all-time favourites and helped me to cry for someone else when I couldn't cry for myself. I've read it more than once and passages and words still remain in my head. It has been part of my own emotional growing process. I cannot recommend it enough
