Welcome to Judy Blume's world, where no topic is off limits. Best known for her frank and funny take on adolescence, Blume is regarded as a pioneer in making it "okay" for teens to discuss their bodies and fears. For almost forty years, Blume's work has connected with young readers and adults. Her books have also achieved notoriety as the target of repeated censorship—Blume is one of the American Library Association's "most challenged authors." To date, her books have sold more than 75 million copies and received close to 100 awards.
