Gayle’s Gable

Blubber by Judy Blume exposes the ugly reality of peer pressure and the pecking order of the school playground. Jill thinks nothing of joining in when Wendy makes fun of Linda. The teasing escalates and Jill takes little time to consider her actions or their consequences—until the group changes targets and set their sights squarely on her. The previously picked-on Linda happily joins them. Parents, this novel should spark some great dinner time discussion.
