Hi Ms. Blume!
I have gone to therapy for religious OCD (scrupulosity) and anxiety for a couple years now, however my illness makes it VERY difficult for me to keep my faith and connection with god. I've been in the midst of a pretty intense anxiety attack concerning religion these past couple days. I stumbled across the preview for Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret on Goodreads and decided to read the preview. It was so comforting to find out that i'm not alone in having doubts about religion, and even though i'm perhaps a bit 'too old' for it, the clear language was soothing to my anxiety and faith and somehow it has helped in the midst of this awful storm. Although i'm past bodily puberty already, Margaret is so relatable in so many ways and it's so comforting to know that i'm not a freak or weak or alone. i will definitely read it as soon as i can! Thank you so much!

You've always been a blessing and a secret in my youth.
It only took 11 yrs to announce publicly that I enjoyed every word Are you there God & Blubber in particular. Both added the much needed wisdom then and today.

I unfortunately faced the "not good enough" or derailing dialogue from my future aspirations for as along as I've known myself. Parts of me over the years absorbed the negative chatter. HOWEVER, the big kid within didn't give in. Today I've published one, very short, story and aim to follow your path ( publish 3 before seeking publicist and editor). It's called You and I: Naomi and Jiggs. I'd like to mail it to you in hopes you'll find time to read it and impart wisdom.

Many thanks in advance , & I hope you continue to have days worth dreaming about.

Dear Judy Blume,
I grew up in Canada reading your wonderful books for teenagers. I felt I was not alone with my misgivings about myself, my family and my school life. I now have some wonderful young teenage friends here in Germany and would like to share your books with them. But their English is not yet developed enough to read your books in English and benefit from them. Are your books available in German? If so, I could not find them. If not, could I recommend someone who could translate them for you? I am studying translation in Erlangen, Germany and know someone who could do a fabulous job of translating your books into German. I very much look forward to hearing from you, in case you have the time. Please continue to make the world a little better with your writing. Sincerely, Gabriela G

Hi. My name is Ava. I really enjoy reading your books. I’ve only read one book so far but I am really into your books. I really love Fudge. He is my favorite character. My favorite part of Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing is when Fudge has his birthday party and everybody is going crazy. Also when Peter was watching Fudge and he fell off the playground and knocked his tooth out . My other favorite part was when Fudge ate Dribble, Peter’s turtle . Thank you for reading my message and I love your writing!

Tales of a Forth Grade Nothing was hilarious and emotional, my favorite part is when Peter gets a dog. I have a question, did you always like writing books? I find it disgusting how Fudge ATE Dribble. I have a lot of connections with Peter, because I have a little sister who I find very annoying.

Hello,
I am a teacher and we just finished reading your hilarious book, Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing. I have a group of grade 4 students, writing in your guest book at this moment, and some of them have used my email for their messages. Just wanted you to know why there will be so many messages from the same email. They are all from different children. I have never seen them so excited to contact an author ! I told them that when I was young I actually wrote you a letter by snail mail and that you responded. Thank you for being such a gift to so many generations! Please know that you continue to touch our hearts, minds and funny bones!

Dear Judy,

Thank you so much for the work you've created. It's brought much needed escape and pleasure for me. I have read all of your books as a kid and now as an adult. I can't get enough of your writing. I love your intelligent characters, sense of humor and their sex lives. I have read all of your books written up till now and I find myself grieving that I've reached the end of your library. My favorite grown up book is "Smart Women." That was brilliant.

Are there any other writers who write kind of like you? Everything I read now is disappointing after you. Help?

Your Bookworm Fan,
Laura

Hi Judy Blume,

We are in third grade, almost in fourth grade, at George P. Phenix Pre K-8 School in Hampton,Virginia. We have a couple questions: What would life be like if you were not a writer? Who did you base Peter on? Were you a big fan of sports growing up? We really enjoyed reading your Fudge books. Fudge is funny and embarrassing. You are a great writer! Thank you for sharing your writing with us.

Hi, Judy! I am just embarking on my career as a writer of picture books for children. I was an avid reader as a youngster and you were one of my very favorite authors. Thank you for inspiring me! When I grew up, I didn't know any writers. We were expected to grow up and get a 9-5, which I did. Fast forward 50+ years and now that I've raised my family, all I want to do is write. I'm trying to restructure my life to make that happen. I have already written several children's books and am working on 3 more while those are out for illustration. Wish me luck!

Is there any way to break through? Thank you kindly, Liivi Alexander

Hi Judy - I was reading “make up or break up” by Kate Welshmanin library and was struck at how similar it seemed to “Just as long as we’re together”. I got home and checked and the first sentence is almost exactly the same. My mum said she hopes you’re getting royalties!! I love all your books, thank you for being an amazing author!! Ella

I vaguely remember reading Forever... as a teenager; I am embarrassed to admit that this book (and a few similarly written ones, published years later) gave me a better sex talk than my parents did, even if I did not begin dating for several years after reading the book (I even got better sex talks from my exes and their parents).

The character of Artie is always interesting to decipher; is there any possibility that he could have been written as having some form of autism, which was not officially recognized as a learning disability until the 1990s?

Upon hearing my 11 year old daughter would need to wear a back brace for her worsening scoliosis, I immediately thought of a book I read as a young teen. It took me only a few moments to realize it was a Judy Blume novel. Thank you for writing DEENIE about this topic. But thank you more for my fond memories of being around that same age. I remember spending my days walking to the nearest public library in Queens, NY to find something to read. The books I took home became some of the best memories of being a tween teen. Those books were my sanctuary.
I’m sure I’m a better person for having read all stories written by Judy Blume.

Your books are nice to read, because they are written in a way that is easy to understand. I also think your books are funny, and I like the books that are in the perspective of the kid that is in the book. I think that most of your books have an important life lesson in them. These are some reasons why I think that your books are really good. I would definitely recommend your books.

You are one of my favorite authors, and I will keep reading your books. If you could please send me a letter back I would appreciate it.

Yours Truly,
