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

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

by Judy Blume
For Margaret, everything is different this year. She's just moved from New York City to the suburbs and is anxious to fit in with her new friends — Nancy, Gretchen, and Janie. When they form a secret club to talk about private subjects like boys, bras, and getting their first periods, Margaret is happy to belong. But in Farbrook, everybody joins the Y or the Jewish Community Center. Margaret doesn't have a religion, so what's she supposed to do? Suddenly life is very confusing. Maybe it's all part of growing up, but Margaret could really use some answers.

"With sensitivity and humor Judy Blume has captured the joys, fears, and uncertainty that surround a young girl approaching adolescence". — Publishers Weekly
