Family Drama: Tiger Eyes by Judy Blume

This month in our Drop-In Book Discussion (Tuesday Dec 20th! 3:30pm!) we're talking about books that deal with family drama. Because over the holidays we all spend a lot of time with our families, and sometimes it's DRAMATIC, and it's always better to read about someone who has it worse than you.

You'll find books on the topic displayed around the room, or you can always ask us. This is one of my favorites. Tiger Eyes by Judy Blume. A secret about me is that I've read this book more times than I have read any other book on earth. About a million, probably. When I was young I read our library's copy so many times it fell apart and they just withdrew it and gave it to me.

A lot of the books we've displayed are WICKED DRAMATIC, but this is a nice quiet one. I'm not going to tell you any more than that, you'll have to take my word for it (or come in and ask me about it in person and I'll go crazy, and probably tell you the NUTS story of when I MET JUDY BLUME on the STREET. It was completely insane.)

(ALSO: It's going to be a MOVIE soon.)


  1. The movie will be out in 2012.
