It's good to read that Judy Blume is still writing. She carved her way into my readerly heart at a young age. * (Original info deleted)
My mom reminded me that I read "Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret," in one day while lying atop our backyard picnic table. I never put the book down — not even when I ate or went to the bathroom.
Later that summer, I discovered "Forever" in my mom's dresser drawer. Of course, at 12 I wasn't allowed to read it, but I would sneak the book out and would carefully (not breaking the spine) hide in my parents' walk-in closet to devour the story of teenage sexual awakening.
* Thanks to Dawn's comment, I realized I mixed up my childhood authors and included info about Ramona, which was Beverly Cleary NOT Judy Blume. Thanks, Dawn!
