The book 'summer sisters' is absolutely superb, if anyone loved the movie beaches you will most definately love this book. The book is far better than this movie. The movie is not based on the book however it is similar, in terms of the concept. This book takes you from your average childhood akwardness to being a powerful women and onto the wise mother and grandmother, this is superb book that you will not be able to put down. Highly recommended, an incredible read.

I totally agree about summer sisters. I was a blume fan from waaay back. i read all her child and ya novels. I like her adult books but summer sisters is my fav book ever. If you like it you should read eating the cheshire cat by helen ellis.

I liked Judy Blume when I was around 10/11. "Just as long as we're together" and "Are you there God? It's me, Margaret" are probably my favourite novels of hers.

I have to admit I used to find books incredibly boring, that was until I found Judy Blume (aged 9) and grew to adore her stories and finally discover my great love of books in generaL! I've read pretty much all of Judy Blume's books, and those I haven't I will ! She's an inspiration to me, she's like a role model and one day, I hope to be a successful author like herself and I have been directly drawn into that career from her so that's great! I would recommend her books to anyone,from the young, to the old, from the ligh reader to the heavy reader, I'm sure you'll get something out of her books, so why hesitate?! I like the Alison, Rachel and Steph books best :)

Oh and Deenie and Tiger Eyes have to be TOPS on my list, the first book I read which totally drew me in was Just as Long as we're together. I found Judy Blume really knows how to write for children and adults who are growing up and finding themselves, the characters are so realistic most of us will find some we can directly relate to, her books taught me a lot about life, they are always from Judy's heart and enter yours, always on a topical issue.
Deenie for example on a girl who has to wear a brace because of her scoliosis and Tiger Eyes after the leading character's dad was shot dead in his store. Are you God there, it's me Margaret equally is based around the act of puberty itself, of which everyone of us has to go through at some time, the title, probably something we've all felt before, when there's noone else left Blume seems to pull through to her characters, and that's something special that keeps me reading even after these 7 years, I keep re-reading, too, always finding something new. A powerful author, these stories will stay with you for life.

I also feel as a young woman growing up that her books were amazing, insightful, and really helped me understand and that it was okay to go through what I, and every woman, was dealing with.
