Read the hilarious coming-of-age classic! Judy Blume's Are You There, God? It's Me, Margaret is now a major film starring Rachel McAdams and Abby Ryder Fortson.
Meet Margaret. She's going through all the same things most teenage girls have to face; fitting in, friendship and first bras.
Life isn't easy for Margaret. She's moved away from her childhood home, she's starting a new school, finding new friends – and she's convinced she's not normal.
For a start she hasn't got a clue whether she wants to be Jewish like her father or Christian like her mother. Everyone else seems really sure of who they are.
And, worst of all, she's a 'late developer'. She just knows that all her friends are going to need a bra before she does. It's too embarrassing to talk to her parents about these things.
So she talks to God instead – and waits for an answer . . .
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
For those returning to this classic for the second (or 10th) time, we have excellent news: It’s still awesome. And for newcomers to this witty and sensitive exploration of adolescence—lucky you! Judy Blume’s 1970 YA novel follows 12-year-old Margaret as she moves with her family from New York City to New Jersey and attempts to do the impossible: navigate her new suburban existence while juggling middle school, first crushes, peer pressure and parental expectations. Thanks to Blume’s signature warmth and wry humour, Margaret’s story is as apt today as it was decades ago.
Judy Blume's body of work returns to her original editor, Richard Jackson, with the rerelease of four classics in hardcover. An African-American family moves to all-white Grove Street in Iggie's House, to be released in April. The author's breakthrough title, Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret, about 11-year old Margaret Simon's struggles with puberty and religion, is now available in hardcover as well as in a Spanish-language edition, Estas ahi Dios? Soy yo, Margaret. Two additional titles came out last season: Blubber takes on preteen teasing; and It's Not the End of the World explores the effects of divorce.
It made me chuckle, nearly cry, smile and show everyone! There is lovely description and I would totally recommend for 10-14!
