Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Blume quotes correspondence she receives asking for advice, written by readers of her children's books, boys and girls who don't feel free to confide in their parents. The letters here come from youngsters 10 years old through the teens and tell about specific problems. Some of these kids are loners rejected by peers; others feel neglected at home or hurt by divorce. The author hears from victims of child abuse, including incest; from those trying to quit drugs. A divorced mother herself, Blume is sympathetic to the young people who write herand sympathizes with parents as well; she intends this book to help them become more aware of their children's needs.

"A compassionate and popular author's way to help parents see life through their children's eyes..." -- New York Times

"Judy Blume is Miss Lonelyhearts, Mister Rogers and Dr. Ruth rolled into one." -- New York Daily News

"Judy Blume's books for children have won her a huge following... and children who identify with her characters trust Blume with their own secret fears and worries. It is a trust she takes seriously. Somehow, she always takes the time to listen -- and makes the time to answer." -- Cleveland Plain Dealer

"Letters to Judy is a moving collective portrait of young Americans.. The sound of real life practically leaps off the pages." -- Los Angeles Herald Examiner

"an attempt, heartrendingly successful, to give parents a keyhole glimpse into the world of their children." -- Washington Post Book World
