Overview

Otherwise Known as Sheila the Great by Judy Blume

"Sheila manages to survive the episodic trials of the summer--the beginners' swimming test, the revelations of her friends' Slam Books, even the presence of the dog who 'goes with' the Tubmans' rented summer home....Sheila's ongoing crisis of image is as easy to identify with as it is to laugh at."--Kirkus Reviews.

About the Author

Judy 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 four novels for adults, In the Unlikely Event, 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 BS 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. In 2004 she received the National Book Foundation's Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters.

Judy Blume never disappoints my kids - my 10yr old took it to school and her teacher asked to borrow this book to read to the class..

My daughter is really enjoying all of the Judy Blume books at this time. She is in third grade and this is a little higher reading level but she is handling it well. She is still able to sound out and keep intouch with the storyline. I feel it is a challenge for her and making her see that she is reaching higher goals. I would recommend it to any child that is into reading or is just beginning. They are really fun books.

Like the way Libby sees hot boy and she follows them and way shelia finds new friend she is not trying to act cool she acting nice and kind and she tells the truth.

Otherwise Known As Sheila The Great makes its way into the Fudge series, Shelia is s fun girl who expresses her feelings in a way that makes me feel happy. If your 9 or 90 you have to love the character Judy Blume puts into her books
