Conhecimento Comum




I've recently been revisiting Blumes work, and something that is just consistently holding them back for me (even if I remembering loving the book as a kid) is the constant fatphobia. I didn't remember it being so bad in this one but at one point it just ramps up and develops a really shitty narrative on 12-13 year-old girls bodies. Like, part of the "happy ever after" aspect is tied to Stephanie losing weight she gained? Her mom sends her with a boiled egg and carrots for lunch while trying to make her do exercise videos? Honestly the other topics and discussions in here are pretty solid, but I definitely wouldn't love putting this in the hands of the target age reader because of the body image aspects.… (mais)

I read this once when I was younger and I must have trauma-blocked the turtle part from my mind because when I read that scene it all came flooding back.

Otherwise Known as the Worst Book in the Fudge Series

I remember reading this multiple times as a kid (for some reason I was fascinated at the part where Sally is stung by the Man O' War jellyfish) but over the years I guess I forgot a lot of the details because rereading this now was a bit of a surprise...like I totally forgot Sally thought her neighbor was Hitler...
Reading this as an adult I definitely didn't enjoy it as much, especially because of the erratic, jumpy narrative that skims over major events/time in a matter of sentences, yet as a 9-year-old this was, for some reason, a staple book on my shelf. I don't think I'll ever read it again but I'm glad I revisited it one more time.… (mais)
