Are you there custys? It's me, Bekah. This book felt SO 1999 when I read it in 1999. Turns out girls have been practice-kissing with pillows, praying for bigger boobs, and stressing about their first periods since 1970 when it was written, and maybe they always will. I'm prepared to promise this will keep standing the test of time.

— Bekah


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. Adolescents are often so relieved to discover that someone understands their body-angst that they miss one of the book's deeper explorations: a young person's relationship with God. Margaret has a very private relationship with God, and it's only after she moves to New Jersey and hangs out with a new friend that she discovers that it might be weird to talk to God without a priest or a rabbi to mediate. Margaret just wants to fit in Who is God, and where is He when she needs Him?
