To be honest when I was a teenager I was always checking my parents books I was lucky that both were readers I read books by Jacqueline Susan, Harold Robbins, some I did not even like that much The Betsy comes to mind but I was so intrigued by all the sex scenes.

I wish I could give it negative stars here. Mar 11, Angela Perkins rated it it was amazing. But ever anxious to please, and maybe afraid to try anything else, I went to college and got a degree in education. The great thing about Judy Blume is that she is dramatic but fair.

I hate that if this is book about women being stuck in their choices, why Sandy and Norm stay together, but Sandy doesn’t have an ounce of remorse for her actions and seems to stay because there is no other choice.

My impression is that Sandy Pressman was living in a fog, she had everything her mom and husband said she should want, but never thought for herself, or even thought about anything at all. This article about an erotic novel of the s is a stub.

It’s warm after all! Sandy’s inability to see those around her, even her own family members, as real people jdy must have thoughts and needs, signs her own emotional retardation.

Judg strings of spittle dripped down his chin, along with something viscous and black. This one was a light, demented read.

She would grow as a person and acknowledge her true desires.


But by the fourth chapter I didn’t care about her enough wifdy hang around and see if she grew some ovaries and started acting like a real woman or not. A few seconds later, Norman was lying dead on the floor, and Sandy was standing over him, his blood and brain matter decorating her blouse.

What did I call it — Judy Blume stepping out from under the baggage of Blumeness? In all fairness, there was sort-of a humorous part and I’m hoping it gets much much better after chapter four I just wasn’t going waste my time in any case. I also got the impression that J. A quick smutty read. Adult me wanted a more nuanced Wifdy.

If I had no past affiliation with the book, I’d give it two stars. Definitely going to read a bit more. Ah, what Mother never knew!

She married a solidly employed guy, they had a couple of kids, they live in a 3 bedroom, she has a hudy schedule. What’s my point here? It’s such a shame since I remember really liking her books as a child and recommending her to my own girls. I don’t mean to make it sound like it’s all about sex.
