My favorite childhood book
Are You There God, It’s Me Margaret
By: Judy Blume
Genre: Juvenile fiction
Audiobook: 3 cd’s (3 hours 9 mins)
5 out of 5
This is my all-time favorite pre-teen book. I read it at least 11 times in two years! I guess you could say I was a little obsessed with getting boobs, my period, and boys. I will never forget “We must, we must increase our bust” and will even admit to practicing a times. This was my first time reading it as an adult and I did enjoy the audio version. I also discovered that the story itself involved more than just Margaret’s physically growing up. Margaret struggles with her religious views because she was raised with no beliefs since her parents have different backgrounds. I did not remember this at all. This book will always hold fond memories for me.
