Everything I Needed to Know About Being a Girl I Learned From Judy Blume


Whether laughing to tears reading Otherwise Known as Sheila the Great or clamoring for more unmistakable "me too!" moments in Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret, girls all over the world have been touched by Judy Blume's poignant coming-of-age stories. Now, in this anthology of essays, twenty-four notable female authors write straight from the heart about the unforgettable novels that left an indelible mark on their childhoods and still influence them today. After growing up from Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing into Smart Women, these writers pay tribute, through their reflections and most cherished memories, to one of the most beloved authors of all time.

My Thoughts:
This was an adorable book. I love Judy Blume and have always been a huge fan of hers. I loved reading how Judy had influenced the lives of all these women just as she had influenced mine. Each woman was influenced in a different way and it was great to see. Everyone should read this book!
