Thankyou all for [posting back!!!!!! This report is due May 10 and i am freaking out!!!!!! I am desperate for some opinions so keep it coming! PLus let me know if you agree with this thesis:

 

Judy Blume has a talent for using her vivid meories of her early life as the basis for her stories. Young readers can easily Identify with her books and learn from them at the same time.

 

I think that's a good thesis for a 7th grader!!! don't you? :)

I agree with your thesis, however, i would clarify the 'young reader', my 10 year old is quite mature with her reading, but even so i read her books before she does to check theyr'e suitable. there are a few things that i have seen whilst skimming through, which are slightly too old for 10 year olds, but the vast majority of the books are great, so you have to let a little something through i think. I think the slightly older themes are the ones that teach the reader. good luck! my assignments are in for the 19th, so i know what you are going through! :wink: i am freaked as well! :o

I totally agree with the thesis - its exactly what I would have said in my own words.

 

I have re read a few of her books as an adult and still really enjoyed them. As a teenager I learn alot from them as I was not a very street wise child as it were.
