Audible Editor Reviews

To say Judy Blume has helped a few girls through adolescence is a gross understatement. The 24 essays collected here, from some of today’s more celebrated female authors, reaffirm just how important Blume has been in the lives of girls. And that the team of narrators assembled for Everything I Needed to Know about Being a Girl I Learned from Judy Blume is spot-on - deploying sarcasm, mischief, and enthusiasm at just the right moments - should come as no surprise given the reach of Blume’s influence. Whether it’s a serious issue like divorce or just sneaking under the covers to read Forever, listeners will enjoy hearing these essays on one of our most celebrated young-adult authors.

Publisher's Summary

"I wonder if Judy Blume really knows how many girls' lives she affected. I wonder if she knows that at least one of her books made a grown woman finally feel like she'd been a normal girl all along...."

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I have no clue.


    Has Everything I Needed to Know About Being a Girl I Learned from Judy Blume turned you off from other books in this genre?

    It has turned me off from listening to books that share other people's stories on how books have changed their lives.


    What didn’t you like about the narrators’s performance?

    The narrators were all far to dramatic about how Blume's books affected them. My goodness, I was certainly in love with Blume books as a young girl, but come on they really weren't life altering or changing in such a major way as these narrators were depicting.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    None that I couldn't have gotten by looking up the titles of Blume's book online.
