I'm a 5th grade literature teacher and for an assignment, I have the kids read a book and write a fictional letter to the author. One of my students read Fudge-A-Mania and loved the book and is interested in mailing his letter. Is there an address he could send a letter to you? Thank you very much for your response

The Beauty of Being a Girl

There are many writers that express themselves so effortlessly through writing, their writing is unique and can be viewed through many angles. It is amazing how a writer can have a long lasting impact on the lives of individuals. A well-recognized writer who has definitely made an impact in my life is the one and only Judy Blume. When I stepped into my schools’ library at the age of thirteen, I handpicked a Judy Blume book and that is where my admiration began. Judy Blume helps young girls understand topics that sometimes our parents are not comfortable in sharing, in a delicate way. I was drawn by the experiences that are shared throughout every book mainly because I am a girl and the events are realistic and not just fantasy.
As many girls and boys, now that I am nineteen-years-old I can relate to quotes in many of Blume’s books, it’s outrageously insane! Overall, I like the fact that Judy Blume books were a part of my childhood and bring back good memories.
As a ten-year-old-girl, I was not aware that every girl gets their menstrual cycle. Whenever I would see my mother and eldest sister hand each other a square colored packet I would question what they were, just out of curiosity and because I wanted one of those ‘cool’ things. Unfortunately, they did not tell me what they were and advised me that in a few years I would know their top secret. I was pretty excited to be frank, I was very eager to get a hold of those ‘cool’ things. Once I turned thirteen-years-old, I got an unpleasant surprise when I visited my home bathroom. I got to use the ‘cool’ things that my mother and sister had kept secret for three years. If I had read Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret by Judy Blume I’m sure I would understand what I witnessed in the bathroom. I remember so vividly when I thought I had hurt myself which resulted in blood. I was very gullible, but can you blame me?
Judy Blume helps young girls understand what periods are and that it is normal for girls to experience this. Some parents are not comfortable in sharing real life events because it may be awkward for them or maybe because they want us to experience it on our own. Whatever the deal is, I like how Judy keeps it real with her audience that entering life as a full teenager is a lot to grasp on. She discusses everything as the character Margaret buys her first bra, gets her period, and starts liking boys. As I mentioned above, some parents like mine do not feel comfortable in sharing stuff like this with their girls because it is not an easy topic for most. Nonetheless, it was nice reading that kind of book that dived into reality without fearing anything.
If you have read the many of Judy Blume’s books you’d realize that she explores many topics that are beyond imaged. She discusses friendships, death, family, the list goes on and on. As I continued reading Blume’s books as a teenager I enjoyed the many themes that were presented in every copy. I was able to understand characters such as Margaret from Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret. Being a teenager there is pressure that should not be there in the first place. Fitting in was something that many girls wanted to do in the story, they wanted to have their periods as other girls and look a certain way, a way that is ‘acceptable’. As the years went by, I learned that one should not be like everyone else. I learned that every girls’ body is completely different and that we should love and appreciate one another. This is what a lot of reading taught me. It also taught me that we all go through changes in our lives and we lose people and gain people at the same time. Judy Blume assures girls that we are not alone and that fear is just a word as she quotes in one of her books, Each of us must confront our own fears, must come face to face with them. How we handle our fears will determine where we go with the rest of our lives. To experience adventure or to be limited by the fear of it.
In the book Deenie, by Judy Blume I was able to relate to the main character Deenie in different way. Judy Blume came up with a story that I’m sure many girls can relate to. Not just experiencing something like scoliosis knowing someone who has different features from the rest. Although I did not suffer from scoliosis, I struggled with convulsions as a young child and as a young girl I was not exactly the same anymore. I looked a distant way from the rest of the girls at my school. I did not fit in due to many activities I was unable to be a part of and of course, my appearance. I was a very self-conscious girl and my family did not know that. I have to be honest that I dislike that part of me, my wish was to be like everyone else.
Reading this book gave me clarity that there are other people who have experiences like this. At first I did not want to share what I went through as a child because my thoughts were that people would see me as a special person. As the years went by, I learned to have confidence in myself and that different is beautiful. I learned that we should embrace what we go through and accept those around us who may be going through something similar. I am proud to say that I have come a long way from having a near death experience at the age of two and being able to see life as it is. It’s amazing when a book can uplift you and every thought is spoken so effortlessly.
Judy Blume is a writer who taught young girls like myself what was normal. She did not fear anything and spoke freely. Her books show that adolescence is a nice road that comes with many transitions and acceptances. Blume’s books are a reminder of what growing up is all about, most specifically the beauty of being a girl.

Dear Mrs. Blume,
My class just finished Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing. The book was really good. My favorite character is Fudge. He reminds me of my sister. My favorite chapters are the Birthday Bash and the Flying Train Committee. In the Flying Train Committee Fudge ruined Peter's project. I plan to read all of your other books. Love, Saanjh

Hi Mrs. Blume,
I just finished reading your book Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing in class. I can't wait to read your other books! I love how you showed that Peter didn't get too much attention at the beginning. Then Peter realized his parents did actually realize he was there by getting him a dog. Then Peter and Fudge were happy. I'm also an oldest child so I feel just the way Peter does.
From,
Finley😏

Hi, do you write about animals or you? If you do write one. I really want to learn about your childhood. You should write about a book that wrote it's called Ella and the zombie army. It's about a mermaid named Ella and one day merzombies come to town. It would be amazing. Thanks your fan Em.

Dear Judy,
I met you when you visited Doylestown in 2015. (Thank you again for visiting and for signing everyone's books). After seeing the news today about the explosion in Elizabeth and the MSN article that the man responsible for the Manhattan bombing was from Elizabeth, NJ, my first thought was to be grateful that there were no injuries in Elizabeth's station. My second thought was to inform a friend of mine who commutes on the NJ Transit line and would experience delays. My third was to find a way to contact you. I don't know if you still have family and friends in Elizabeth, but if you do, I hope that they are safe. Take care, and I hope all is well.

I was just thinking about my life and things that influenced me. I said how did I develop a life of prayer when that was not really a part of my upbringing? Then I remembered,"Are You There God? its me Margaret". I learned that I could talk to God about anything and through the Word of God, I learned not to be anxious over anything but through prayer and supplication to make my request made known to God and that the peace of God that surpasses human understanding keeps my heart and mind by Christ Jesus.
