The review of this Book prepared by Julie L.

A great novel for adults by Judy Blume. This writer is famed with writing books geared to the pre-teen and teen audience, but this novel is for adults waiting to become a Judy Blume fan. The story of 2 girls growing up, apart, and always having a connection to each other. I haven't read a Judy Blume book since I was a kid, and I was pleasantly surprised by this one. It is more of a book for women, but I suppose men would enjoy it too. It made me laugh and cry. I loved it! This book is a quick and easy read, go get a copy today.
