Are you there, God? It's me Margret is a good book about a girl who has to go through a lot of changes. She has to move states, leave her grandma, make all new friends, and out of all of that, she has to figure out her religion. Margret is an eleven-year-old going on twelve who is very confused with her life. She just moved states and has to make all new friends. On the first day she meets Nancy, Nancy tells her all of the Do and Dont's of the 6th grade. She has to wear her shoes without socks, or she would look like a "baby." Margret and Nancy become best friends. On the first day of school, they find out that they are in the same class and with other of her friends. They then make a club called the four pts (The four pre-teen sensations). All five of the girls tell each other everything and do everything together. In the mix of making friends, Margret has to try and chose her religion. Since her parents come from different religions, she can choose her own. All of her friends have a different religion, so she goes to different churches to try them out. She is perplexed with her religion because her Grandma wants her to be Jewish, her other Grandparents want her to be Christian, and her parents are getting angry at both because they want it to Margaret's decisions. She is also growing up and needs to make some of her own decisions. I liked this book because it showed me that even if you do have to leave family and make new friends, things will still come out good in the end. ( )

First published in 1970, this has become a staple of children’s literature, as well as a frequently challenged book.

Eleven-going-on-Twelve-year-old Margaret Simon has moved to a new town and navigates the social pitfalls of a new school, new friends, secret clubs, boy/girl parties and the changes of puberty. She learns that first impressions are not always accurate, and that some people’s word cannot be trusted. She also has to deal with her “lack of religion” – how can she know if she should join the Y or the Community Center?

I think if I had read this at a young age I would have easily identified with Margaret. I certainly recognize some of my own anxieties about growing up, though my situation was very different from Margaret’s. ( )

This is a lovely version of the well-known and highly enjoyed tale for middle grade and tween girls brought out in celebration of the novel's 50th anniversary. And it is a treat for readers who enjoy it.

Margaret has just moved to a small town in New Jersey and is excited to start sixth grade at a new school with her new friends. Bonding, the girls form a small group where they discuss all sorts of things which are important to them—all of that wonderful girl stuff. Not only does Margaret have to come to terms with her changing body and interests, but fights hard to fit in. But even things like religion are throwing her for a loop. Margaret has a very close relationship with God and trust Him with everything, but she doesn't practice 'religion'. And that's something the girls just don't get.

This was hugely popular when I was in the fifth/sixth grade, and I remember all the girls squealing, giggling, and sneaking this book to each other under their desks. As a kid at a private religious school, this book pushed tabus and the girls in my class loved it. I myself didn't touch this one until many years later, and not for the same reasons as my friends did at that time. But I understood why they enjoyed this one so much...although they never read any other books really.

Margaret is very easy to relate to. Ms. Blume brings her across as a very natural, normal girl, who is simply trying to handle everyday life. The situations are very similar to that of many girls at that age, and the problems are the type that every girl faces. I think what really wins readers over is the simple openness Margaret expresses with her thoughts and feelings. While her relationship to her friends is easy to understand and connect with, it's the openness she shares with God, which really hits home, since she hides nothing when she speaks to Him. This is an honesty readers simply enjoy and feel a part of.

Times have changed tremendously on the themes surrounding Margaret and her friends in so far that many are no longer considered as tabu. Still, this novel hasn't aged. Margaret comes across as natural as she did then, and still has the same problems. It's actually amazing that this tale has glided so easily over the decades. And this new version adds a special cover and format to prove how timeless this book is. It's pink like Margaret's favorite color (which most girls that age avoid) and has a more modern flair than the earlier versions. It's definitely great for gifting, too. Although I, personally, was never a fan of such books as a young girl, I know many, many girls were and I believe they still will be today.

I received a complimentary copy and found it to be very well done. ( )

12 year old Margaret explores puberty, religion and the patriarchy. ( )

This is a fantastic as well as ageless book that should be read by all girls from 9 to 99. It touches on all the things all girls worry about…body image…boys…friends…and the inevitable changes that will take place rather they are ready for them or not. It’s told in the first person in “kid friendly” language and is truly a treasure “We must…we must… we must increase our bust!" Remember that one ladies?? Doesn’t matter if you’re 25 or 75…I just bet you do. You’ll love meeting Margaret rather it’s the first time or the second or third time. It will have to be counted as one of the best reads I have had this year…and it wasn’t even a ghost story:) ( )

Are you there God, it's me Margaret. Life is getting worse every day. I'm going to be the only one who doesn't get it. I know it God. Just like I'm the only one without a religion. Why can't you help me?
"Oh, you're still flat," Nancy laughed.
"Not exactly," I said, pretending to be very cool. "I'm small-boned is all."
