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.
Every year, around Thanksgiving, I give my middle school students the assignment to thank their favorite author. When I think back to when I was their age, you were my favorite. You taught me how to be a teenage girl as much as, or maybe more than, my own mother. You helped me get through friend drama with Forever and family drama with It's Not the End of the World. I kept my first diary because of you. I know I would not have become the teacher, mother, and person I am today without your books. My sincerest gratitude!
P.S. Thier mother is the ugliest mother I have ever come across.
P.S. please call me Sam!! I can't wait for you answer!!
Sincerely, Mercedes, age 11
I am writing, from on my front porch overlooking the Santa Barbara coastline( this in itself is a miracle!) to say THANK YOU! THANK YOU! Thank YOU!
I am fifty- five years old, and because of your book,”Hey God, it’s me Margaret…” I learned as a child how to talk to God like a best friend.
Twenty years ago, I became a broke single mom when my ex became a paraplegic just months after our divorce. But through talking to God and listening for his answers he lead me on a path that can only be described as miraculous.
But I have to admit, it wasn’t until this week when my 25 year-old daughter who lives in New York finally called me saying she hit rock bottom and was on her knees saying,”mom, do you remember that book you used to read me,’Hey God it’s me Margaret? I finally got on my knees and said,”hey God it’s me, Tarah?”
PRAISE GOD ! I don’t know if you have a faith in God but I do know your story has led to believing and having childlike faith and listening to as I like to call it THE WHISPER WITHIN, which is the name of my blog.
Wherever you are, may you know YOU have made a difference in the world and isn’t that we are supposed to do, use our talents for the greater good?
Your writing made me a curious and contagiously passionate reader at eight.
Blessing to you, dear sweet Judy Blume !!!
Much love ,
Lisa A. S.
I grew up reading your books and have saved them for my kids to read when they're old enough too! My debut MG novel-in-verse set in 1990s Sri Lanka will be published next year by Holiday House, and I was wondering if you could read it and decide if you want to offer a blurb? It would be surreal for me!
We love your books so much. We want you to make another one with Fudge, Peter, Tootsie, Turtle, Uncle Feathers, Mom, and Dad. Thank you! We love your books.
I don't know if you remember me, I stopped in to apply for a job right b4 covid. Anyway, I just wanted to tell you, that you were in my cross word puzzle today.
Have a beautiful day.
