The name of the book I read is Blubber. Blubber is by the bestselling author, Judy Blume and is published by Atheneum Books for Young Children. It has 153 pages and its genre is realistic fiction.
Blubber is about a girl named Jill Brenner who helps bully another girl named Linda Fischer. While Jill is a supporter, the real bully is her so-called friend Wendy and her assistant Caroline. Other than that, Jill’s best friend is Tracy Wu who lives across the street from her. Then, when something happens on Halloween, Jill and Tracy get in some hot water. You might be wondering what happened but the only way to find out is to read the book!
The main characters of Blubber include Jill Brenner, Tracy Wu, Linda Fischer, Wendy and Caroline. Jill is the supporter and helps Wendy bully Linda while she is Tracy’s best friend. Tracy is Jill’s best friend since they were young. Linda is the victim and gets tired of getting bullied everyday by the same people. Wendy is the main bully who threatens Linda. Finally, Caroline is Wendy’s assistant because every supervillain has an assistant.
I like this book because it shows me that anyone can change. It doesn’t matter whether it’s changing your friends, your behavior, or personality – with the right mindset anyone can transform anything about them. I also like this book because it makes me think how fortunate I am to not have any troubles such as being bullied.
I think everyone will enjoy this book. It offers some advice and can guide you through hardships and also anyone can relate to it. This book shows that you can tackle any obstacle and make it through.
