Read full description of the books:
Judy Blume. The name brings a warmth to it as memories flood back. Your books grew with me through my prepubescent years. "Super Fudge" was a rite of passage. "Are you there God, it’s me Margaret" explained the changes taking place in my young female body. So of course, I was delighted to find out you had written another book after a seemingly long gap in my life.
But alas, "In the Unlikely Event", made me realize I’ve matured. The novel just didn’t do for me what your earlier ones could. Yes, it was a good story - fascinating to find out there were 3 plane crashes in Elizabeth, New Jersey which happened within weeks of each other. Yes, it was an easy read. However, there were just too many characters and too many points of view. I was rather disappointed to have to figure things out and gave up early as you were making me work too hard. Judy, you will "forever" stay a part of my reading history and the joy and magic you brought to my young reading mind, but unfortunately, In this unlikely event, I just feel I've outgrown you. "It's Not the End of the World", Judy Blume. Maybe I'll give it another go in the future or "Then Again, Maybe I won't". I give it 3 ★
