11-year-old Margaret’s family has just bought a house and moved from a New York City apartment to suburban New Jersey. Only child Margaret must make new friends and start a new school for sixth grade. The year is filled with even more transitions, as Margaret and her friends and classmates break in a first-year teacher and deal with the onset of puberty. Unlike most of the other children in her class, Margaret has no religious faith, and she’s beginning to be curious about religion. Without any religious instruction, Margaret develops a prayer life and talks to God about all the changes she’s experiencing.

I didn’t read this book as a tween since it was considered controversial then. Perhaps it still is. I’m not sure why. Margaret’s experiences over the course of her sixth-grade year are typical for anyone who went through middle school in the 1970s. Margaret develops good interpersonal skills as she learns that gossip isn’t always true, and as she learns to admit and apologize for her mistakes. If you enjoy audiobooks, don’t miss the audio version narrated by Laura Hamilton. ( )

Margaret is moving from New York to New Jersey. Her father grew up Jewish and her mother grew up Christian. Her parents are raising Margaret with no set religion, saying that she can make that choice as an adult.
Margaret starts making friends and attends 6th grade at her school. She becomes part of a secret club of four girls. She gets a new male teacher. She talks to God.

This is a really cute read about a young girl growing up and learning. ( )

I thought I was running late for Banned Book Week, but turns out I'm running early, as it doesn't start until Oct. 1 this year. Regardless of my timing, here's a book that's been banned and challenged frequently by the closed-minded over the last fifty years. Through secondhand knowledge, I always thought the bans were just because it mentioned menstruation, but in reading the book I find also that the main character is an agnostic who struggles with her exploration of organized religion and the varied opinions of her friends and relatives.

Menstruation and religion, now there's a cocktail that book banners are gonna choke on.

The book itself is quite fine, giving its topics a reasonable if too-short examination. It perhaps crams in a few too many other things -- bras, rumors, classroom dynamics, estrangement -- and forces the plot to exactly fill a school year (one of my biggest pet peeves with children's literature) rather than letting the story find its own rhythm. But there were some chuckles, some drama, and a warm feeling of happiness upon finishing.

I look forward to checking out the recent movie adaptation now. ( )

Margaret has no religion, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t have a close relationship with God. It’s not until she moves from New York to New Jersey and begins hanging out with new friends does she realize it’s probably weird that she talks with God the way that she does. So, for a school assignment, Margaret sets out to do an experiment on religion and what that means for her.

So, I’m going to blame the fact that I didn’t read this novel until my 30’s because I was at such a high reading level as a kid, I basically skipped reading middle grade books for the most part and went directly to Young Adult. I totally should have read this as a kid because a lot of the novel is something nearly every young girl can relate to (minus maybe the religious parts of it).

It brought back a lot of memories as a young girl growing up. Exceptions for me: I didn’t want to wear a bra and fought my mom and older sister about it until I basically had to. And, when I got my first period, it was at the public library’s restroom, I shouted to my friend in the next stall I started, to which she replied, “Can I see?!” before I told her “NO!” and to “Go get my Mom!”

This book also talks about a young girl’s relationship with religion and how that affects her. Her parents are trying their hardest to raise her as nonreligious, so that she can choose a religion when she’s older. But, all of Margaret’s friends have some relationship with God, through Christianity or Judaism, and she feels almost like she’s left out.

Even though this book was written and set in the 1970’s it still applies to everyday pressures young girls still face. Margaret is trying to figure things out for herself but runs into a lot of misinformation or more of people’s opinions rather than facts. I remember a lot being a problem growing up.

Overall, I wish I knew of this book growing up. I think it would have helped me feel seen and know the fact that almost every preteen/sixth grader probably went through a version of the exact same thing. ( )

It definitely helped me through puberty and gave me hope. My mom read it at the age of about 12, and gave it to me to read. I remember it was funny and I read it several times. ( )

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."
