Murder by Death

I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.

It's Not the End of the World

It's Not the End of the World - Judy Blume

Still relevant, still timeless.  I think.  Re-reading this as an adult nothing jumped out at me as anachronistic. 

 

My parents never went through a divorce, so I can't speak to the accuracy of Karen's POV, but I do know that as a kid it gave me insight into what my friends might be going through; hopefully it stopped me from sticking my foot in my mouth (as much).

 

Odd what you remember: Karen meets a new friend, Val, who reads the New York Times every Sunday cover to cover.  That was the most memorable part of the book for me - that and Val's foot shaped rug.
