As with any compilation of essays, they were hit or miss. Adored Meg Cabot's essay, others were kind of redundant. I had no idea Blubber and Forever... had such life impact for so many. I was more taken with Are You There God It's Me Margaret but I enjoyed them all. I certainly agree with the sentiment expressed by all the authors: growing up in the 1970's, especially in Catholic school, I learned far more about navigating the world from Judy Blume than any other source, and I continue to be grateful to her for paving the way for authors to confront tween and teen issues in such a realistic fashion.
