Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret

Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret


The beloved coming-of-age novel from the author whose &;name has long been synonymous with young adult fiction&; (Los Angeles Times).   &;Are You There God? It&;s Me Margaret is very special.&; &;Amy Poehler (Vulture)   &;Generations of teenage girls have grown up reading the tales of teenage angst told by beloved author Judy Blume.&; &;Mashable   Margaret Simon, almost twelve, has just moved from New York City to the suburbs, and she&;s anxious to fit in with her new friends. When she&;s asked to join a secret club she jumps at the chance. But when the girls start talking about boys, bras, and getting their first periods, Margaret starts to wonder if she&;s normal. There are some things about growing up that are hard for her to talk about, even with her friends. Lucky for Margaret, she&;s got someone else to confide in . . . someone who always listens.   &;The first Judy Blume books I read. . . served as a kind of introduction to myself.&; &;John Green quoted in The New York Times   &;Mention Judy Blume to almost any woman under a certain age and you're likely to get this reaction: Her face lights up, and she's transported back to her childhood self &; curled up with a book she knows will speak directly to her anxieties about relationships, self-image and measuring up.&; &;NPR   &;Fans, readers, booksellers &; even other authors and celebrities &; often dissolve into tears upon meeting [Judy Blume], confessing that books like &;Forever ... &; and &;Are You There, God? It&;s Me, Margaret&; got them through adolescence; taught them about sex, love and friendship; and provided their first glimpse of adulthood.&; &;The New York Times    &;Blume wasn&;t the first writer to legitimize and celebrate the interior life of young girls. . . . But Blume&;s work feels significantly more influential than that of her predecessors and peers.&; &;The New Yorker   &;These stories belong to young women. Real young women.&; &;Diablo Cody, Entertainment Weekly
