My only advice …

My only advice is to stay aware, listen carefully and yell for help if you need it.

Judy Blume (born Judith Sussman; February 12, 1938) is an American author. She has written many novels for children and young adults which have exceeded sales of 80 million and been translated into 31 languages.

Blume’s novels for teenagers were among the first to tackle racism (Iggie’s House), menstruation (Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret.), divorce (It’s Not the End of the World, Just As Long As We’re Together), bullying (Blubber), masturbation (Deenie, Then Again, Maybe I Won’t, and originally Tiger Eyes) and teen sex (Forever). Blume has used these subjects to generate discussion, but they have also been the source of controversy regarding age-appropriate reading.

The author and anti-censorship activist, whose books are still heavily banned, was born 75 years ago today.
