These three books of Judy Blume’s I read during the June 2014.

Character seemed a little bit of a whiner despite being 12 y.o.
A reread. I read this when I was in my pre-teens, so I didn’t remember much of it. This time I liked it. Just didn’t think the main character acted like a 12 y.o. really. But then I’m not a middle child like Karen. And she was 12 y.o. in 6th grade, while I was like her friend Val Lewis in 7th grade. And Karen still had a bit of a whiny attitude, not like a 12 y.o.

My school life summed up

“But if I got the right answers what’s the difference?”
“Your equations are backwards. You’ll have to do the paper over.”
“I don’t see why,” I told her.
“Because you’re supposed to be learning how to think the problems through and you aren’t thinking the right way.”
“Isn’t there more than one way to think?”

Best quote:
“”We must, we must, we must increase our busts…””
– Margaret Simon and friends (an excersize the pre-teen girls were doing in order to “increase our busts”)
