Welcome to Memorable Monday! The purpose of Memorable Monday is to showcase an influential book read in the past that still sticks with you today. This fun Monday morning post is hosted by the lovely Becca at The Becca Files.
This week, I am featuring:
Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret
by Judy Blume
I’ve been thinking about this book a lot lately. It may be because my daughter is starting to change. She’s not a baby anymore and that is becoming tremendously apparent day by day. We’re still a few years off from where the girls are in this book, but it’s coming, and it is coming fast. If you have never read Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret, I highly recommend that you do so, especially if you have young tweens in your household. This book meant everything to me when I was 10. I might have read it about 10 times, it was that important to me in my tween-age years.
About the Book
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.
NOW IT’S YOUR TURN!
