This article does not cite any sources. (August 2012) (Learn how and when to remove this template message)
Blume quotes correspondence she receives asking for advice, written by readers of her children's books, boys and girls who feel unable to confide in their parents. The letters come from youngsters 10 years old through the teens and tell about specific problems most of which Blume has addressed in her novels. Some of these kids are loners rejected by peers; others feel neglected at home or hurt by divorce. A divorced mother herself, Blume is sympathetic to the young people who write to her and sympathizes with parents as well; she intends this book to help them become more aware of their children's needs.
