Judy Blume

Judy Blume (born 1938) is an American author. She wrote many extremely popular novels for children and young adults in the 1970s and 1980s. The "Fudge" trilogy features a hyperactive kindergarten boy and his bemused family. Her novels for teenagers were among the first to tackle such controversial matters as menstruation (Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret), divorce (It's Not the End of the World), adult female relationships (Summer Sisters), and teenage sexuality (Forever). Fans of Blume's novels have praised her use of real-life settings, ambivalent endings and gentle humor. Her allegedly ambiguous treatment of moral issues made her at one time a regular target of school library censors and the religious right.
