Book I'm Grateful I Read #Giveaway Hop

 

I can still remember when my mom gave me Are You There God? It's Me Margaret as if it happened yesterday. I fondly delved into the pearls of wisdom that this book imparted over and over again and it helped my young mind at the time. I can also remember when I gave my daughter the same book a few years ago and the biggest difference was the book cover.

 

Here's what my copy looked like:

 

And this is what my daughter's copy looks like:

 

I loved this book then and I still love it today. Here's what the book is all about:

 

 

Margaret Simon, almost twelve, likes long hair, tuna fish, the smell of rain, and things that are pink. She’s just moved from New York City to Farbook, 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 religion, and that she isn’t going to the Y or the Jewish Community Center. What they don’t know is Margaret has her own very special relationship with God. She can talk to God about everything—family, friends, even Moose Freed, her secret crush.

Margaret is funny and real, and her thoughts and feelings are oh-so-relatable—you’ll feel like she’s talking right to you, sharing her secrets with a friend.
