So today's challenge has me telling you about my favorite book as a teen. When I was about 12 I read a book called Are You There God It's Me Margaret by Judy Bloom. That book was so profound and hit me so strongly I guess because I was the same age as Margaret going through the exact same things she was at that age.
I loved how she and her friends, Nancy and Gretchen, were so close and she had a huge crush on Norman. James was my Norman back then. Aaaawww *swoon* . I remember that infamous spin the bottle game she and her friends played where she had to kiss a boy in the closet. Aaaawww the memories.
I really think every young girl around 12 years old should read this book. It's like a rite of passage. For those of you that have young daughters or nieces I strongly recommend getting them this book. Even though it was written in the 70's, it is still so very relevant today.
Now that I am writing about it I have this sudden urge to read this book again and relive my preteen years.
Stay tuned for tomorrows post!
