Read in August, 2008

Believe it or not, there was once a time when the adult world was mysterious, and the transition to adolescence was full of confusion. Young girls actually once looked to books to calm their fears, and most of the time these books were by Judy Bloom.

It seems that virtually every female who came of age in the pre-Internet era has a Judy Bloom story. I can remember feeling as if I needed to sneak to read Are You There, God, it’s Me, Margaret, and read it I did, albeit with a healthy dose of guilt.

Those days are gone. However, this lightweight and agreeable volume contains essays by those authors who remember a different time.
