Judy Blume goes digital for the first time: ‘Forever’ available as e-book

“Parents of tweens must be cringing: Earlier this week, Simon & Schuster Children’s released the first ever Judy Blume e-book and, fittingly, the story they chose to inaugurate this momentous occasion was none other than Blume’s often controversial “Forever,” which tells an endearing story of two teenagers innocently in love and ready to do it. The novel was first published in 1975 and, because of its somewhat taboo topic, it is often a highly censored book. In fact, Blume’s tale of blossoming love appears on the American Library Association’s list of the 100 Most Frequently Challenged Books from 1990-2000 and comes in at number 8. In fact, five of her books are on the list and the others include “Blubber” (32), “Deenie” (46), “Are You There, God? It’s Me, Margaret” (62) and “Tiger Eyes” (78).”
