4.0 out of 5 stars Are you there Judy?? It's me Laura, June 23, 2007
This review is from: Everything I Needed to Know About Being a Girl I Learned from Judy Blume (Hardcover)
This book was a great trip down memory lane - and yes, I too wish I could have contributed an essay. It was great to read how Judy affected other girl's lives just like she helped me through so many issues. I would have loved to see some more diverse essays though- too much Forever and Are you there God- no Tiger Eyes which was one of my favorites. (I think it got a slight mention in the essay about mothers.) Anyway, well worth the read.

Tiger Eyes was my favorite too, and unfortunately it seems, one of the lesser-read of her books. I loved Deenie, too.

I, too, regretted the absence of Tiger Eyes, as well as a few others. I do think it's overlooked; even I didn't read it until I was an adult. But I wish it would get half as much attention as "Deenie" or "Forever."

Honestly, Tiger Eyes was one of her BEST, so much better than a good deal of the books for younger audiences with immature heroines; there was hardly anyone likeable in Blubber and I couldn't stand the ignorant Margaret from "Are You there, God?" I'd already gotten my period when I read that book and, knowing what it's all about, I had no patience for the silly droopy girl who wept with joy upon getting hers; no inspiration for me there, just made me want to smack her. Tiger Eyes is deep and powerful, and Forever looks empathetic and really moving too; I'm seriously considering getting it.
