Judy Blume’s body of work returns to her original editor, Richard Jackson, with the rerelease of four classics in hardcover. An African-American family moves to all-white Grove Street in Iggie’s House, to be released in April. The author’s breakthrough title, Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret, about 11-year old Margaret Simon’s struggles with puberty and religion, is now available in hardcover as well as in a Spanish-language edition, Estas ahi Dios? Soy yo, Margaret. Two additional titles came out last season: Blubber takes on preteen teasing; and It’s Not the End of the World explores the effects of divorce.
