Outstanding. Narration ten out of ten. Always a classic favorite, Judy Blume impresses me yet again.
Great book...brought back many memories from my childhood.
I'm wondering if the writers for the HBO show "Sopranos" copied/borrowed the characters for the series. Many similarities.
My daughter and I have been doing lots of driving lately so we decided to give a talking book a try. I was looking for "Are you there God, it's me Margaret?" which I read when I was about her age but the only Judy Blume title I could find was "Then Again, Maybe I Won't". I guess it's the male companion to "Are you ..." and I kind of feel I read it at some stage in my early adolescence.
I enjoyed the story and in the most part the story telling. I found some of the other voices jarring - especially the female characters. I absolutely hated the music over the opening paragraphs- it made it very hard to catch the story (though maybe I was just having a bad day!)
All in all our attention was held - my daughter was shocked by references to wet dreams and spying on girls. Blume writes so well for kids about kids and even with the references to Vietnam War the story still translates well for kids in 2017.
