I m not sure what the first Judy Blume book I read was it may have been Freckle Juice but my love for her definitely ignited when our teacher read us Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing when I was in the fourth grade class of St Mary s I read a lot but Judy Blume was the first author I really loved and that love demanded I read all of her books available at the time including Wifey which Iregret I had a boxed set of her books which included Nothing my beloved Are You There God It s Me Margaret and this bookI liked Blubber and read it enough for it to start to fall apart as opposed to Margaret which did completely fall apart because sometimes I slept with it like a stuffed animal This one didn t resonate the same way with me and it s been decades since I ve read itAnd boy was this hard to read as an adultThis story is about bullying and Blume explains in the epilogue that it was inspired by bullying her daughter witnessed at school it was first published in 1974 Jill Brenner is basically a good kid other than pranking a mean neighbor on Halloween but when her fifth grade class cheered on by a nasty ringleader decides to pick on a classmate that s a bit of a doormat she can t help but join in And when Linda Fischer does a class report on whales the nickname Blubber sticks But it gets much worse than name callingAnd while this story had its funny charming moments because this is Judy Blume it was very difficult to read about how this gang of otherwise mostly ordinary children tortured another child from keep away on the school bus which many of us are undoubtedly familiar with to serious offenses like force feeding her and making her vomit locking her in a closet and pulling her skirt up to show everyone her panties It s Lord of the Flies with adults and without pigs OR it s that South Park episode where the kids connive to have all the adults arrested and just one week later they ve gone full on Children of the CornI don t know where I m going with this Bullying is bad and children are terrifying and humanity can be awful and I used to watch a lot of South Park Anyway I think this is still a valuable read for kids

I was at the library with my children yesterday when I noticed the Judy Blume books I loved Judy Bloom when I was younger So I thought it would be interesting to reread some of them again Blubber is the one I read last night I remember when I read it the first time that I really related to the main character Jill It is about a 5th grade class who begins to pick on Linda who is overweight This is day in and out teasing harassing Then one day Jill gets on the wrong side of one of the main instigators and overnight she becomes the target By using her wit she is able to reverse the trend and things go back to normal I related to Jill because I remember thinking I may not be the most popular but at least I am not unpopular I felt bad for Linda but was relieved I wasn t her As an adult reading this I am appalled There is no redeeming uality Some of the teasing that went on would ualify for expulsion and sexual harassment It was very painful to read as a mother Jill does not stand up for Linda She never empathizes with her When she begins to get tease she does not recognize how much her teasing hurt Linda The only lesson she learned was not to do what Linda did and just sit there In fact when given the chance to eat lunch with the girls in her class she chooses a safe choice and Linda once again is aloneThe one way this book would be worth reading is if it was used to open up a dialogue to explore teasing bullying and standing up for others It almost seems like it opened up wounds but never healed
