Everything I Needed to Know about Being a Girl I Learned from Judy Blume


Book #84 Read in 2012
Everything I Needed to Know about Being a Girl I Learned from Judy Blume
edited by Jennifer O'Connell

This book features a variety of authors detailing how the works of Judy Blume affected them as they were growing up.  Blume receives a nice tribute from these authors and acknowledgment that her works were meaningful to slews of readers.  Many of Blume's books are mentioned, but titles such as Forever, Deenie and Tiger Eyes and Are You There God, It's Me Margaret receive several mentions.

Having been a huge Blume fan growing up, this was a nice way to revisit some memorable titles.  It was an interesting read about how literature can affect readers and stay with readers for years and years.  I enjoyed it.

  1. I read a few Blume books when I was younger, but don't really remember them much. This sounds like a good book, though.
