There are few authors that have taught us as much as Judy Blume. Although many of her books have been banned and challenged throughout the years for their frank discussions of teenage sexuality, among other topics, her work has been loved by readers for more then 40 years.

Whether we were laughing, crying or just learning more about life and love, we always found something new and wonderful between the pages of a Judy Blume book. To celebrate her 80th birthday, on February 12, 2018, here are some of our favorite quotes from her stories.
