Judy says: Thank you, thank you for all your wonderful notes. I only wish I could write back to each of you personally. But in order to start a new book I need serious thinking time, which means less time for e-mail. Hope you understand.
Just want you to know that my assistant and I read this guestbook every day, and try to respond when appropriate. Your continued love and support are a constant inspiration.

I just want to say a few things. My mom gave me Margret at age 12, and it made me feel like a friend was talking to me when my own friends didn’t talk about things like this, even though it was the 90s. My sister taught me that time in life was special, and my friends said it was horrible, and that’s all they said. I felt alone at that age. Especially because I was bullied and no one defended me. And also, as a writer, your documentary on Amazon Prime means the world. The details of a writer’s life, someone I loved reading, opens my eyes and also makes me feel not alone as a writer. You have helped me in so many ways, so I just want to say thank you. I read Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing and Superfudge over and over, even as an adult. ♥️

I wanted to tell you I absolutely LOVED the movie "Are You There God, it's Me Margaret". It took me right back to when I was 12 years old.
I loved all your books, including your Adult books.
Please let me know if you will be writing anymore adult books.
I loved the cameo you had in the movie also.

Dear Ms. Blume
My name is Kristin Hehrer. I am 43years old and a substitute teacher from Westerville Ohio. I have been a fan of your books since I was in the fourth grade. I do not understand why some of your books are on the banned list because you only tell the truth to children.
I am writing to you for some advice. I have been told that I should write about my adventures living as a wheelchair user. However, I do not know that I have the capacity to write from the view of a child as you do. Most of my fun experiences happened as a youngster. Any advice you could give in regards to writing from that pound of view, would be most appreciated.
Thank you so much for being part of my childhood.
Warmest regards
Kristin

Dear Judy,
My name is Jasper and I am 26 years old. My mom introduced me to your books when I was a kid. In a time where rights are being repealed and books are being banned it's a blessing knowing that there is somebody like you who has been an activist through your realistic fiction and depiction of such genuine experiences. My wish is that any and all children have access to the guidance that your book affords them. Books that teach you to be kind and know that you're not alone with the thoughts that you once thought were solely yours.
I have dissociative identity disorder, meaning that I share one body with multiple personalities or "alters." The younger members of my system still seek solace and acceptance from your books. They've helped us ruminate on abuse and have unorthodox conversations about having feelings and desires of self exploration and how to do that in a manner that feels safe and innate rather than besmirched by others wrongdoings. For this I thank you immensely. Thank you for sharing your imagination, your vulnerability and for connecting with those who are younger. Wishing you blessings. Shalom.

Hi, Judy,
I'm so excited about the movie version of Are You There, God? It's me, Margaret. coming out today! It was a book I read at eleven and helped me understand my impending puberty. Thank you for writing it.
ou've probably heard this before, but how about a fictional, humorous book on menopause? I'm finding early perimenopause pretty frickin' entertaining and there was almost zero preparation for this. A fun book about the other big "change" in a woman's life would be a great bookend for AYTGIMM. Just wanted to throw this idea out into the universe!

Hi Judy,
I just wanted to thank you for your wonderful books. I grew up in the 70's reading your books. In fact my favorite book Are you there God? It's Me Margaret is my favorite, and for my 48th birthday I am going to watch it on the big screen. I was so excited to hear that it had made it to the box office. I Love that you continue to be dedicated to writing,and hope that the movie is a hit!
Sincerely,
A dedicated fan!

Hi! I'm Amara and I'm currently 10 years old. I would like to tell you I really like your book, Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret. It's probably my favorite book and I wanna let you know I love your writing style.

Dearest Judy,
I'm currently watching your documentary, Judy Blume Forever, and I feel compelled to drop you a note. Thank you. Just thank you. You normalized things through your writing that were frightening and foreign to too many young people. You have always been wholly true to yourself as a writer, and I am so grateful to you for this. I'm also a writer, and I read banned books too.
Maybe I'll be able to visit your bookstore in Florida. That's got to be a magical place.

I'm watching Judy Blume Forever and reliving so many memories of my childhood.
I remember my best friend and I taking turns reading aloud from Margaret when we were 11 or 12.
I read Summer Sisters and Smart Women every year.
I am a lifelong fan.
I just wanted to thank you so much for letting us all know, we weren't alone.
Sending so much Love,
Tera

Good Morning, Judy:
I am 75 years old and felt compelled to write my first fiction novel. I'm almost finished with it. To me, it is a heart-warming story, filled with love, overcoming obstacles with faith.
Trying to write the book my lap top kept crashing. It is on a lick and a prayer. So, I've had to print every page after it was finished to make sure I didn't lose them becaue my lap top crashed again.
I don't have much money. Don't know what step to make next. So far my book is 438 pages long. What do you think I should do next?
Appreciate your advice.
Sincerely,
Gwen

Hello, first and foremost thank you for your books. I was a very late bloomer, bullied, teased, and a very unsure little girl. Even at 48 I find myself resorting to “Are you there God it me Margret” for me that was a pivotal moment in time. I can not thank you enough. Respectfully T

Hi Judy!
I watched Judy Blume Forever yesterday and enjoyed it immensely. Your books were so timely in my adolescence, when it seemed like books were my only friends. I struggled with many of the subjects of your books, and it never occurred to me to write to you. I was lucky to find other mentors who helped me grow and survive those years. Thank you for your words and gift to the world.
Cindy from West Haven wrote on April 27, 2023
I just finished your documentary and I really had no idea of the struggle you went through with all the book banning. I'm 55 yrs old and I was one of the lucky ones. When I read all your books in my grade section of our school library, the librarian said I'd have two have a parent come in and give permission ( I was in 4th grade). My Mom went the next day and told her I had no grade limit, I could take out anything I wanted, including Are you there God?, It's me Margaret. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for starting off my love of reading.
Kelly L from Needmore wrote on April 27, 2023
Hello Judy. Congratulations on the movie. You have inspired me since I read your book. I wrote to you when I was in the sixth grade. Thank you so much for helping young people with the struggles of being a teen and helping figuring stuff out. I wish you all the best and hope to see so many more of your books since now that I am a grandmother of boys your books can help me possibly understand them. I also hope you still have fur babies, I so loved to get those cards with their paw prints on them. Back then I was Kelly Hard and you made a big impression on me. Thank you for all that you do.

Hi Judy Blume - I work for a Middle School (Language Base School in White Plains, NY._ We all love your books.

Dear Judy,
I just finished watching your documentary “Judy Blume Forever” it brought back so many memories for me throughout my life from reading your many books. I am 49 years old, a wife, mother and nurse. I wanted you to know the impact you had as a professional author on so many people of all ages. As a young girl I had a hard time on learning how to read. I remember being so sacred and nervous to read until a reading teacher in my elementary school helped me to learn how to read. I fell in love with reading. All I did as a kid and till this present day as an adult is I love to read.I am still a kid at heart and your books bring me back to those memories of my childhood, young adult and my adulthood. My favorite author growing up was you! You touched on so many emotions and subjects that children of all ages went through in their lives. I am sure many have told you how you helped them in your writing. I am sure you made many feel that they were not alone on how they were feeling or what they were going through. I read almost all of your books both young adult and your adult novels. Every time I just get lost in the characters of your books. I was swept away in your novels and couldn’t put them down. Reading for me was an escape during different parts of my life. My very first book by you that was given to me by my mother was , “Are you there God , it’s me Magret” My mom gave it to me because I was coming of age and thought it was a way for me to know about womanly topics that she probably didn’t feel at the time comfortable to talk about with me. Once I read it I thought that you understood how I was feeling and what I was going through at the time. I couldn’t wait to read all your other books that you have written and continue to read throughout the years. There are so many favorite books of yours that there are to many to name. Please know the impact you have had on literature throughout the many decades. However , as a women walking and practicing her Catholic faith throughout her life. My pray is that you reconsider and stop funding Plan Parenthood who perform the most abortions. Life is a true blessing from God. All innocent babies need to be protected. Never mind the well documented effects both physical and psychological on the women who have had abortions and seek healing from this traumatic event of abortion. These future babies could be the next Judy Blume. Please pray on this to end abortion. May God continue to Bless you and your family !

Judy,
I am watching the documentary - Judy Bloom - Forever. I feel like I have known you all my life. I was born in 1972 and grew up reading all of your books. I kept all of my Judy Bloom books from my childhood and will never part with them. I remember the controversy with the book “Forever.” Crazy!!! One of my friends got in trouble because she brought it to school and, of course, all of the girls read it. We didn’t care!! I know you get these letters all the time, but I too, feel that you helped me understand some of the “stuff” we weren’t suppose to talk about. You have been and will always be my favorite writer!! Thank you so much for pursuing your wonderful dream and talent of writing books!!! 😊❤️
