"Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret"
No one ever told Margaret Simon that eleven-going-on- twelve would be such a hard age.When her family moves to New Jersey, she has to adjust to life in the suburbs, a different school, and a whole new group of friends.Margaret knows she needs someone to talk to about growing up-and it's not long before she's found a solution.
Are you there God?It's me, Margaret. I can't wait until two o'clock God.That's when our dance starts.Do you think I'll get Philip Leroy for a partner?It's not so much that I like him as a person God, but as a boy he's very handsome.And I'd love to dance with him... just once or twice.Thank you God.
