Read from January 30 to February 01, 2011

Blubber is a story all about bullying and it basically tells the reader that when you’re bullied the best thing to do is stand up for yourself. That’s pretty much what the whole book is. And I think that it was quite a good book for younger children.
I enjoyed reading it and I think that while it brings up the issue of bullying a large chunk of the plot is unresolved and nobody really does anything about it.
Other than that, Blubber is a nice short read and it’s a good book for kids to read. Judy Blume does an amazing job at providing the main character with the voice of a ten year old girl. I sometimes have trouble with the voice of the character not being related to the age of the character but in the case of Blubber, I could tell that the narrator was a ten year old girl.
Overall, I think that Blubber is quite a nice novel to read on the subject of bullying. It’s extremely well written and I can see why Judy Blume is a popular author.
