Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

No one ever told Margaret Simon that eleven-going-on-twelve would be such a hard age. When her family moves to New Jersey, she has to adjust to life in the suburbs, a different school, and a whole new group of friends. Margaret knows she needs someone to talk to about growing up — and it's not long before she's found a solution.

"Are you there God? It's me, Margaret. I can't wait until two o'clock God. That's when our dance starts. Do you think I'll get Philip Leroy for a partner? It's not so much that I like him as a person God, but as a boy he's very handsome. And I'd love to dance with him...just once or twice. Thank you God."

Review:

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

Review:

"It will be easy for girls to imagine themselves in Margaret's world because it is a realistic one. She experiences a wide range of emotions, all of which will strike a chord with readers." Children's Literature

Synopsis:

Margaret Simon has a lot of things to think about — making friends in a new school, boys and dances and parties, growing physically "normal" and choosing a religion.

Synopsis:

Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret

No one ever told Margaret Simon that eleven-going-on- twelve would be such a hard age.  When her family moves to New Jersey, she has to adjust to life in the suburbs, a different school, and a whole new group of friends.  Margaret knows she needs someone to talk to about growing up-and it's not long before she's found a solution.

Are you there God?  It's me, Margaret. I can't wait until two o'clock God.  That's when our dance starts.  Do you think I'll get Philip Leroy for a partner?  It's not so much that I like him as a person God, but as a boy he's very handsome.  And I'd love to dance with him... just once or twice.  Thank you God.

'Are you there, God? It's me, Margaret.' is a GREAT book for any young girl to read. It was written long before I was born, but even by the time I reached my pre-teens, this book was still relevant. It's sure to help any young girl feel like she's not alone in the world & that ALL girls go through the exact same thing, no matter what era they grew up in.

Judy Blume became the young girls favorite author when I was a child. It's great to see today's generation hasn't been too jaded by today's techno infiltrated life to still enjoy her books. Makes growing up a bit easier to know you're not alone.
