Publisher's Summary

Margaret Simon, almost 12, likes long hair, tuna fish, the smell of rain, and things that are pink. She's just moved from New York City to Farbrook, New Jersey, and is anxious to fit in with her new friends - Nancy, Gretchen, and Janie. When they form a secret club to talk about private subjects like boys, bras, and getting their first periods, Margaret is happy to belong.
But none of them can believe Margaret doesn't have a religion, and that she isn't joining the Y or the Jewish Community Center. What they don't know is that Margaret has her own special relationship with God. She can talk to God about everything - family, friends, even Philip Leroy, the best-looking boy in sixth grade.
Margaret is funny and real. As you read her story, you'll know why this book has been the favorite of millions of readers. It's as if Margaret is talking right to you, sharing her secrets with a friend.


What the Critics Say

"If anyone tried to determine the most common rite of passage for preteen girls in North America, a girl's first reading of Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret would rank near the top of the list." ( review)

Shared a childhood favorite with my daughter

I loved sharing one of my favorite childhood books with my daughter. At first, I was a little nervous about the content since she's only in 4th grade, but it was actually really good for her to hear the kinds of questions and interests that she's starting to have herself.
