Otherwise Known as Sheila the Great is one of Judy Blume’s best character books. Sheila is the antagonist from the Fudge series by Blume.
Judy Blume has the ability to write from a child’s world revealing all the insecurities of childhood and making the character relatable. As a child, I loved reading her books because I felt I could be one of the characters and loved how she made everything confusing about childhood into something that could be changed. Sheila Tubman is a classic example of a girl who has fears, insecurities and in trying to cover them up, discovers a strength in herself.
