Are You There, God? It's Me, Margaret

By Judy Blume
Rating: 4 stars
Reviewed by Noelle

Margaret has just moved to a new neighborhood and she is going through a lot of changes. She is very preoccupied with how her body is changing, and talks with her new friend Nancy about wearing training bras and so on. Margaret is ready to start growing up! She also feels a bit odd because most of her friends practice some sort of religion, like Catholicism or Judaism, but her family doesn't. So Margaret talks a lot of stuff over to God in her head. This book was one of the first to really talk about the confusing issues that girls face as they grow up, and it feels real and comforting. Boys may not want to read a book like this, but most girls will identify with Margaret and her mixed up feelings. Read more books by Judy Blume or find out more about her.
