Margret's moves to New Jersey and quickly makes friends. The group of them form a secret club were they talk about all sorts of 'important' things. Inside of Margret's life she is torn. Religion is very important at this time, and she doesn't know which religion she should choose. Her mother is Christian and her father is Jewish- but they don't do any religion any more. Margret, with the help of some friends and family pushes through to find what religion she is, and she she really is. This book twists friendship, religion, and finding yourself into a beautiful book by Judy Blume. Keep in mind that this book can be read by any gender, but it's intended to girls. Happy reading!

I loved this book it's perfect for 5th to 6th grader girls and is so much fun to read it tells about how it is to grow up and talks about how a girl thinks while going through it i felt like i could really relate to it and i think whoever reads this book will love it too

Are you there god? It's me Margret is a book by Judy Blume about growing up. Margret has always lived in New York, and now she is moving to New Jersey for the first time. She makes a friend right away, and is even invited to a secret club. But Margret is still having an identity crisis. Her dad is Jewish and her mom Christian, but they both gave up thier religion when they got married, and Margret doesn't know "what" she is. Read this book to see how Margret discover who she really is. Happy Reading!

I truly LOVE this book. I recommend it to middle school OR high school girls. It is a funny, touching story of growing up and the extremes we will go to in order to grow up faster. It made me realize, that, well, I wasn't alone in wanting to grow up faster. Although it was set in the sixties, it totally holds up and relates to how girls feel now. On a last note, it is not really for boys, but each to their own...

One day a girl named Margret was at here house. She decided to go and go see her friend. When she got to her friend's house she saw a moving truck. This book reminds me of when my friend moved away to another state. I gave this book a five stare rating because it talked about god.
