Judy Leads Us

 

Don’t know if you’ve heard the news, but Judy Blume has posted about her recent breast cancer surgery. You should hop over and read it right now. I’ll wait.

You back? Good. Her blog post contains everything I love about her writing; honesty, clarity, humor and optimism.

A few YA-types were asked this morning to put together some of our thoughts about Judy; kind of a group hug and box of Kleenex (not that she needs it – we do) in the form of an article in the Atlantic wire.  Judy is our hero for both helping us get through adolescence and leading us along the road to being good, responsible authors.

It was nice to say “Thank you.”
