Publisher Description

Blubber is a good name for her, the note from Wendy says about Linda. Jill crumples it up and leaves it on the corner of her desk. She doesn't want to think about Linda or her dumb report on the whale just now. Jill wants to think about Halloween.

But Robby grabs the note, and before Linda stops talking it has gone halfway around the room.

That's where it all starts. There's something about Linda that makes a lot of kids in her fifth-grade class want to see how far they can go—but nobody, least of all Jill, expects the fun to end where it does.

    " Another Blume book I loved as a pre-teen. Let's just say I had some years where I could relate. :-( "

    " I believe this book was banned because it probes children to bully others; with no concern of the person being taunted. this book could definitely help teachers in training with paying more attention to their class and the feelings of children in class and yet distinguish the inabilities bullying can cause to an individual. the fact that robby and Caroline took no concern of Lindas feelings evolved in her dramatic end "

    " So realistic it made me squirm. I respect Judy Blume's talent to capture the truth, but it is definitely not a story to make you feel warm and fuzzy. "

    " I love Judy Blume, she was my favorite author when I was a teen. But this one didn't sit well with me. Maybe it was the word Blubber that still makes me shudder that did it in for me. "

    " The ease with which the kids bully is truly terrifying. Not to mention how easily they switch targets. With the bullying awareness now in vogue, this would make an interesting reading choice for a 4-5 grade bookclub! "

    " Out of all the Judy Blume books, for some reason this is the one I remember the most. I related to the main character a lot; and I think what transpires in the plot and how the characters respond is how I remember thinking and looking at things in grade school. "

    " Not entertaining nor funny. This should only be read as a discussion aid for kids that are dealing with bullies. Even then, beware because there is cursing. Hard to believe this is the same author that wrote the awesome Fudge series. "

    " I've been rereading some favorite children's books and wanted to see how well Judy Blume's story about school bullies held up. "Blubber" was just as chilling as I remembered it to be -- it's amazing how much damage a group of mean girls can do when they band together in their meanness. "

    " I thought that this book was amazing, even though it is sad it teaches you a life lesson: that you should never make fun of anyone just because of the way they look or if they are heavier than others you still have no right to miss treat them. "

    " Re read this book last year at the age of 39, and it took me right back to being a pre teen and all the awkwardness that went with it. Interesting to read it as a mom, and look back at what "little Bitches" we all could be! Definitely, a great a quick read. "
