Read full description of the books:
This wasn't my favorite Judy Blume but it came close. My favorite had to be "Are you there, God? It's me Margaret."
This one appealed to me quite a bit when I was young because I also had a TON of freckles. Along with my read hair...I hated them!
I loved the fact that Andrew WANTED freckles like Nicky. In his mind his mom would never notice how dirty he was that way (ohhh child logic). Then we have enterprising Sharon who comes up with the idea that she will sell Andrew a secret recipe for fifty cents. This secret recipe will magically help Andrew with his wish for freckles. Of course this doesn't go as planned.
It's funny looking back at what amused me so much as a child. Judy Blume was a big part of so many childhoods.
It wasn't long after reading this book that I heard from a friend that I could get rid of my freckles by using a similar mixture of vinegar and lemon juice. I was to mix the two and hold a cotton ball full of the stuff on my face and it would magically bleach them out. I just ended up with a really irritated and really red face.
As I got older I didn't hate them as much, but I still don't love them. They've also faded a bit on their own. Summer time they pop up more but that's okay...I've accepted my freckle face at last.
Judy Blume... you are one of the best!!

Read information about the authorJudy Blume spent her childhood in Elizabeth, New Jersey, making up stories inside her head. She has spent her adult years in many places doing the same thing, only now she writes her stories down on paper. Adults as well as children will recognize such Blume titles as: Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret; Blubber; Just as Long as We're Together; and the five book series about the irrepressible Fudge. She has also written three novels for adults, Summer Sisters; Smart Women; and Wifey, all of them New York Times bestsellers. More than 80 million copies of her books have been sold, and her work has been translated into thirty-one languages. She receives thousands of letters a year from readers of all ages who share their feelings and concerns with her.
Judy received a B.S. in education from New York University in 1961, which named her a Distinguished Alumna in 1996, the same year the American Library Association honored her with the Margaret A. Edwards Award for Lifetime Achievement. Other recognitions include the Library of Congress Living Legends Award and the 2004 National Book Foundation's Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters.
She is the founder and trustee of The Kids Fund, a charitable and educational foundation. She serves on the boards of the Author's Guild; the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators; the Key West Literary Seminar; and the National Coalition Against Censorship.
Judy is a longtime advocate of intellectual freedom. Finding herself at the center of an organized book banning campaign in the 1980's she began to reach out to other writers, as well as teachers and librarians, who were under fire. Since then, she has worked tirelessly with the National Coalition Against Censorship to protect the freedom to read. She is the editor of Places I Never Meant To Be, Original Stories by Censored Writers.
Judy has completed a series of four chapter books -- The Pain & the Great One -- illustrated by New Yorker cartoonist James Stevenson. She has co-written and produced a film adaptation of her book Tiger Eyes, and is currently writing a new novel.
