Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret. is a really great book that realistically takes girls through the ups and downs of growing up. Unlike most Judy Blume books, there is no cursing in this book. However, there is a bit of a detailed description when Margaret gets her period, and about how she sneaks to the store and buys some tampons. Every girl will relate to Margaret and her hilarious friends looking at the male anatomy system and Playboy magazines. Before a program at school, a friend passes Margaret a note stating, "Well, here we go! The big deal sex talk!" I liked the book because it explained some things I needed to know about but didn't want to say to my mom. This is a book parents and tween girls should depend on.
