“Not everything has to have a point. Some things just are.” – Judy Blume, Summer Sisters
Friends are a wonderful thing to have. Some friendships last a lifetime. Sometimes circumstance drives a wedge between two people and tears a friendship apart. Peter Warren Hatcher was one of my best friends in elementary school. I met Peter when I was in the third grade. I had him and his family with me for many years. But by the time I was in junior high school, we had drifted apart. Peter just wasn’t cool enough for a seventh grader trying his best to fit in. I’ll always be grateful for the time I spent with Peter and it might be nice to go back and visit with him sometime. I would like to say thank you to Judy Blume for introducing me to Peter all those years ago. For those unfortunate souls that don’t know, Judy Blume is a marvelous writer. Today I’ll be bringing you up to speed by reviewing her latest work, In the Unlikely Event.
In the Unlikely Event is a book. You can get a hardcover copy and probably a digital copy. There is probably even a paperback version. I don’t really know for sure. Ms. Blume has written numerous books for children and young adults, but this is a book for grown-ups. I think. Kids could probably read it. There might not be too many big words in it. I don’t really know. I haven’t read it yet either.
I like the picture on the front. It is a picture of a blue airplane in a yellow circle. Ms. Blume’s Fudge books used to have pictures in them, but I’ve heard that they’re not printed with pictures anymore. That’s a shame. I like pictures. I also liked the Fudge television show. It’s too bad it got cancelled. All the television shows I like get cancelled. C’est la vie. There is, however, this other video I found. I really like it.
Overall, I give In the Unlikely Event 7 out of 10 stars. Reading is important and Judy Blume is a really good writer. However, I haven’t actually read this book yet. 7 out of 10 seems reasonable. It looks like other people really liked it. You probably will too. You should buy it. Unless you don’t like Judy Blume. If you don’t like Judy Blume, you’re wrong. Judy Blume is the best. Go buy the book. According to The Jejune Bulletin, there’s a 70% chance it will be brilliant.
