I thought this was a great book for young readers. Judy Blume is one of my favorite young adult authors. I loved her books growing up and still enjoy them. I read her book As Long As We're Together when I was young, but I had never discoverd this one. This book is about the same group of friends, but specifically about Rachel. Rachel has a lot of anxiety and doesn't get along with her brother. She has her friends and they help her a lot with dealing with her stressful situations. Basically, she's a perfectionist and her older brother is a rebellious, kind of troublemaker. He drives her crazy. She eventually figures it out and ends up with her dream boy. It was a good read and definitely entertaining. I think Judy Blume does such a great job writing about characters that young adults can relate to. She helps them feel normal.… (more)

A companion to one of my favorite books growing up (Just as Long as We're Together), ...Rachel Robinson is a look at how what seems perfect on the outside can be imperfect on the inside. I like these characters and their relationships. JALAWT was longer and more in depth, but RR hit different notes.

This is a very nice easy read for young pre-teens. I read the book just because I wanted a nice light easy read. I found myself laughing at the girls in the book as I remembered acting sometimes like them.

Rachel Robinson is a 13 year old girl who is highly intelligent and loves to learn. She is the youngest of the children in her family. She has an older brother who she finds annoying. I am sure many sisters would agree that their brother would be annoying too.

Rachel has two friends who she shares almost everything with. Her friends find her brother cute and interesting which makes her mad at them sometimes.

I hadn't read this before; it was a sequal to As Long As We're Together. Not a favorite and I'll probably never reread it, but I still adore Judy Blume.

"Here's To You, Rachel Robinson" by Judy Blume is amazing and relatable book. The book is about Rachel Robinson, who is a very smart and talented student and musician, with different view of life. She is

Judy Blume is after my time, so I don't hold her in beloved esteem. Rachel is in seventh grade, and deals with perfectionism, family and friends, and that unattainable boy. Didn't grab me, but might have had a different effect if I were 12.

Really enjoyed this. Blume's books translate well even when you're reading as an adult. This story is about Rachel Robinson, a type A high achiever who is endearingly neurotic, and her (somewhat) dysfunctional family - type A mom and abrasive but intelligent brother. I heard Blume is writing another book for adults soon, hope this is true!… (more)

I read this in fifth grade and absolutely hated the inclusion of the f-word.

I liked this book because, it seemed like a very relate able book among teenage girls. The book was a good length and was a good companion book to "Just As Long As Were Together".

This was very good book. It shows how friends stick together.
