Read full description of the books Just as Long as We're Together:I'm mad as hell that Goodreads doesn't have the cover of the version that I read, because I liked that cover a LOT. It's the one that has Stephanie, Rachel and Alison in someone's room (Rachel's?) and they are laughing and someone's holding up one of the purple t-shirt that say "FRIENDS" in yellow letters. So nostalgic. But, I digress.
Anyway. I think this was my favorite Judy Blume novel.
Stephanie and Rachel had been best friends since just about forever. Then seventh grade starts. Alison moves into the picture. Things change. Feelings get hurt, friendships become affected.
Now that I think about it, I really felt sorry for Rachel. She couldn't help being so smart. I could relate to her feelings of exclusion from Steph and Alison.
I enjoyed this book so much. And I don't remember where in my room it is. But I know I didn't give it away. If I did I will kill myself.
Sigh. I need to reread some Judy Blume. She was my favorite author as a young kid, along with Beverly Clearly. In some ways she still is.
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.

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.
