Margaret Simon, almost twelve, has just moved from New York City to the suburbs, and she’s anxious to fit in with her new friends. When she’s asked to join a secret club she jumps at the chance. But when the girls start talking about boys, bras, and getting their first periods, Margaret starts to wonder if she’s normal. There are some things about growing up that are hard for her to talk about, even with her friends. Lucky for Margaret, she’s got someone else to confide in . . . someone who always listens.
GBC Review by Sofia S.
This book is about a preteen girl and her own life. She goes through many trials including moving to a different place, a new school and new friends and teachers. In my opinion, this was not one of Judy Blume’s best pieces because this book is too girlish for me, and not for anybody under 11 years old. It is not on my “Read Again” list. If you still want to try this author since she is actually quite funny, read “Tiger Eyes”. Happy reading!
