Bullying sucks, but true friendship is worth fighting for.
Blubber is a thick layer of fat that lies under the skin and over the muscles of whales . . .
When Linda innocently reads out her class project, everyone finds it funny. Linda can't help it if she's fat, but what starts as a joke leads to a sustained and cruel ritual of humiliation. Jill knows she should defend Linda, but at first she's too scared. When she eventually stands up to the bullies, she becomes their next victim – and what's worse, Linda is now on their side . . .
In this bright blue edition of Blubber, Judy Blume sensitively explores bullying and self-esteem.
Judy Blume's body of work returns to her original editor, Richard Jackson, with the rerelease of four classics in hardcover. An African-American family moves to all-white Grove Street in Iggie's House, to be released in April. The author's breakthrough title, Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret, about 11-year old Margaret Simon's struggles with puberty and religion, is now available in hardcover as well as in a Spanish-language edition, Estas ahi Dios? Soy yo, Margaret. Two additional titles came out last season: Blubber takes on preteen teasing; and It's Not the End of the World explores the effects of divorce.
I love this book 😝
It’s so good, it shows a contrast of a girl being a b*tch and the getting bullied a couple of weeks later!
I love this book so much and in fact all of the Judy Blume books. She has a Brilliant way of putting you in the character’s perspective. I definitely recommend her books!! Xx
