Format: Paperback
Very few classics are left that I still care about reading some day. Hemingway I have always found a colossal overblown bore, so he never qualified for further perusal. That Russian guy I am too lazy to google who writes about the Brothers Whatitsname have held zero enticement for me.

But one book existed which I still really wanted to read. It was published in1970 and represented a sea change in children’s literature.

And now that I have finally read Are you there God? It’s me, Margaret by Judy Blume, I can understand why.

This story is fast competing with Kavalier and Clay as my absolute favourite for the year. To say I was blown away by the greatness Judy Blume has created here is an understatement. Wow.

The story, for all those who have not been converted already like me, is all about Margaret. She is an eleven year old girl, an only child, whose parents abruptly decide to uproot their lives and move out of New York City. Ending up in a new town, meeting a new friend, developing a new crush on an older boy, and sporting a new fashion sense in order to fit in, Margaret slams through many new concepts over the course of a very short amount of time.

To top this all off, she reveals early on that because one parent is Jewish and the other Christian, Margaret has been raised with no religion. To say this causes some eyebrows to arch is an understatement. This, along with other factors, gives her a quest to find a faith, a year long journey filled with questions and adventures. To complicate matters, in Margaret’s young mind, is that she already has a relationship with God, who she talks to every night.

Margaret changes and grows, spiritually, socially and physically all through the book.

Format: Paperback
This book was awsome! This book was helpful to me beacause this girl, Margaret is going to grade 6 and so am I. It gave me tips on how grade 6 would be like. I would recomond this book to ages 11-16.(pre-teens mostly)

A 11 year old girl named Margaret just moved to Farbrook, New Jersy from New York. She becomes friends with 4 girls and form a group named the P.T.S.(Pre-teen sensations) Margaret goes through puberty and askes god for help. She has crushes on boys and is growing quickly. At the end of the story, 2 of her friends gets there period and then finaly she gets it and she was SO happy.

Hope you read this WONDERFUL book. If you want to know more, JUST READ IT!!!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I first read this book when I was 11 and I didn't like it at all. Margaret is such a jerk for picking the handsome boy over the nice boy and for being mean to another girl just because her breasts are big. Also, who in her right mind would *want* big breasts when girls who have them get called sluts just because they wear a bra? And who in her right mind would *want* to get her period when all it means is a lot of mess and fuss? The only thing I like about this book is the insight into different religions, which is vaguely interesting. (...)it makes girls who are "different" feel like they are bad people.

Format: Paperback
This was a really funny book. I wouldnt call it a great novel of western civilization, but it was fun to read and it didnt bore me. The book's about Margaret, a preteen (theres a LOT of emphasis on the whole "preteen" thing) who moves from New York to a small New Jersey suburb. She makes friends with one of her neighbors, Nancy, who in turn welcomes Margaret into her circle of friends (the two of them and two other girls, Gretchen and Janie, who call themselves the Preteen Sensations). Margaret is the narrarator for the book, and most the things she says are funny (for example, she decides she likes someone for the sole reason that he has clean fingernails), and I can relate to the way she or her friends do or say something asinine out of the blue. If you want to read a book that isnt dumb and doesnt take a lot of time to read, you'll like it too.

By Poetkitty TOP 500 REVIEWER on June 21 2014
Format: Paperback
My cousin loaned this book to me at 10 or 11, and honestly, I had hugely mixed feelings about it then, and as an adult I still do. While it may have been revolutionary at the time, it sends a message that girls are inherently not ok with maturing, that they compete for their bodies to grow breasts and get their periods, that fitting in with the right crowd is essential - and other negative stereotypes we'd be well to dispel. The only way this book is useful, imho, is to read it with your daughter and point out the nonsense in it.

Timeless classic bought for a family member.
Not exactly for adults unless it's for a trip down memory lane.
Still a good book though.
