Judy Blume Biography
Judy Blume (born February 12, 1938) is an American author. She has written many extremely popular novels for children and young adults. Her novels for teenagers were among the first to tackle such controversial matters as menstruation (Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret), divorce (It's Not the End of the World), adult female relationships (Summer Sisters), masturbation (Deenie) and teenage sexuality (Forever). Fans of Blume's novels have praised her use of real-life settings, ambivalent endings and gentle humor. Her allegedly ambiguous treatment of moral issues made her at one time a regular target of school library censors and the religious right.

After publishing novels for young children and teens, Blume tackled another genre, that of adult fiction. Her novels Wifey and its sequel met with luke-warm reception. Many fans of her children's books were angry at her for releasing books with adult themes, such as adultery.
