karen there was a rug, but not a bearskin rug, although that would have been totally seventies awesome. your imagination is classier than the reality.

Emily Read this in seventh grade when it was secretly passed around by all the girls. :)

Msmurphybylaw Now I remember my Blume period that truly seems like three lifetimes ago. We also passed around that really graphic book by Ms Hollander. And I wonder why I'm such a jaded person.

karen i never got to giggle over this when i was little!! i only had the one where they have sex with the cars.

Joshua Nomen-Mutatio Judy Blume wrote Crash??

karen haahh no it was not judy blume, it was someone else... it was called sirens - i think i reviewed it. it is a funny book.

Joshua Nomen-Mutatio But wait -- with cars, right? Not merely in them?

karen with the windshield. while people were sitting inside. it was like some nympho virus that overtook everyone. many hot lesbian scenes.

karen hahaha you remember the name of his penis.

j only because it's so dumb. i loved judy blume books when i was little but all i read of this book (at about age 11) were the sex scenes and even then i thought naming your penis was stupid, but naming it ralph was just asking the girl to laugh at you.


eh, who knows. i don't name my cars either.

message 12: by Greg (new)

Greg Did she make a joke about Ralph ralphing (throwing up) when he got too excited?

I wasn't going to vote for this but I clicked to see the comments and the spoiler was spoiled. Now I will never be able to read the book with virginal excitement.

Joshua Nomen-Mutatio Do girls name their girly parts? Please tell me only stupid little boys do this...

All the jokes that equate ejaculating to a tiny little bald man vomiting are really gross.

karen those jokes were not in the book, no. i named my sax, but not my sex.

message 15: by Greg (new)

Greg For the record I never named mine. I know most goodreaders were curious about that.

message 16: by Eh?Eh! (new)

Eh?Eh! I vaguely remember overhearing some girl in college talking about naming each of her breasts.

Joshua Nomen-Mutatio Karen, does it creep you out when breasts are referred to as "the twins"?

message 18: by Eh?Eh! (new)

Eh?Eh! The breasts? No. The girl wasn't either.

Joshua Nomen-Mutatio I've heard of girls doing that, too. I guess it's good to know that we're all capable of being dumb, despite our organs and hormone levels.

no, not really. mine are fraternal.

karen i hope i remember to check this when i get home from work... i usually forget to check half of the links....

Joshua Nomen-Mutatio I'll remind you by making a crack about you heading home to play with your fraternal twins.

karen excellent. i should be home by 1130.

message 25: by Michele (new)

Michele Oh, I remember reading this in JHS! I remember her getting her period or something - wait, wasn't that in every Judy Blume book? No seriously, she got her period during sex or something. I remember getting bored and then abruptly graduating to reading Nancy Friday's "Secret Garden". BOO-YAAA!!!!

karen if you hadn't left, we could be having this conversation live.

message 27: by Michele (new)

Michele :(

karen okay i can see and hate them now.

Joshua Nomen-Mutatio You don't like "Gimme Pizza Slow"?? Re-watch at least until 0:43 and try not to laugh. Think of me laughing at it (and being terrified at the same time). That might help.

karen i couldn't laugh - it was all too horrifying. those kids are totally high.

karen maurice

Jasmine some people call me the space cowboy!

karen in my head, he was a classy frenchman, not a drunken frat boy, but yeah.

message 35: by Jasmine (new)

Jasmine what kind of sax?

you are like lisa simpson.

karen i played alto, tenor, and occasionally baritone for ten years.

don't you have a book to be writing??

message 37: by Jasmine (new)

Jasmine not while I'm at work.

I do then I am going to become famous.

I will thank you in the acknowlegements right under jesus and marilyn monroe.

karen wow, third billing. not bad.

Jasmine you're a very lucky girl

Elsie Triana Nuff said

Becca wait, thay have sex. it doesn't last forever;in the end she is a bitch.

Isn't that the entire story line of Fifty Shades. Except he is the bitch? (I wouldn't know. I don't read porn)

message 42: by Jordaline (new)

Jordaline Vulva Woah dude, spoiler alert. thanks for ruining the book for me.

karen if you are serious, and i hope you are not - it is so hard to gauge tone on internet - this review used to be hidden under the "hide whole review as a spoiler" feature, but it looks like a GR glitch made it visible. with this book, it isn't a big deal, because it's not an actual spoiler, but when the feature first came out, i had tested it by using it to "review" three relatively minor agatha christie books just with the name of the killer, with the shrugged intention of "you click it, you pay the price" but then THOSE reviews became visible and i felt really bad. i will try to fix this one.

karen yeah, no, the button that says "hide entire review because it contains spoilers" button is still clicked. this is a GR-fault situation, not meeeeee.

karen i know!!! and it was the one book that made me cry when i was little, except for that dinosaur book. i am really afraid to see the movie 0 what if i sob??

karen huh. i didn't even pick up on the racism when i was nine or whatever. i should read it again as a grown-up and see what happens

Would you? Please report back. I'm afraid of ruining ..."

Wait, Tiger Eyes?! A movie? Checking out imdb now...

karen i can't promise you when i will read it, but i'll do it as soon as i can. goldfinch threw my whole battle plan off.

Karly *The Vampire Ninja, Luminescent Monster & Wendigo Nerd Goddess of Canada (according to The Hulk)* Seriously?! How did I get all the way to adulthood and never read a Judy Blume book?! I am a literary marvel :P. I was more of a Ann M. Martin, R.L. Stine, Christopher Pike reader. By the time I hit Grade 7 I had no interest in "sucky romances" .... I was all about the creepy stories. And there I stayed all through highschool. While my classmates were whispering about sex scenes in Fern Michaels and Danielle Steele, I was reading about sadistic murders with my close friend Dean Koontz. Oh, nostalgia.

karen oh, i went through a koontz phase, too. and vc andrews. and agatha christie. and lois lowry. i only read this one recently, for a book club.
