Social Issues in book clubs

SuperfudgeWe are learning about social issues in our books. My book is Superfudge by Judy Blume. The social issue of the book is that Peter’s mom is having a baby and the social issue here is that now all the attention goes on his sister and he doesn’t want her to be like Fudge, Peter’s younger brother. The other social issue is that they are moving to Princeton, N.J. for a change. These can be called social issues because he needs to suffer through all of ┬áthe changes that has happened in his life. Another issue that Peter has to suffer through is Fudge’s new pet bird is annoying him in his sleep. Another thing that me and my group is thinking is that Fudge has a mental problems and one example is that he kicked his teacher and another thing is that when he grows up he wants to be a bird and he climbed up where they but their backpacks over the shelves. Since he started kindergarten he is thinking that he needs special attention because he is now the middle child. Once they move to Princeton Peter is upset but happy at the same time because he now has a friend named Alex. This happens in the middle of the book. Towards the end of the book Fudge is now behaving in school and at home. They kind of trick you about at first but then he talks about big words such as a privilege and unanimous. Most things that Fudge do are issues for Peter. Peter’s sister is actually not going to turn out to be a replica of Fudge. I think that Fudge is growing up now because he and Daniel ┬áran away to the pastry shop but they went after Alex and Peter went. At the very end they actually goes back to their normal life in the city.
