Happy Sock Sunday! Welcome to July! I really wanted to read this book by Judy Blume because, first of all, I LOVED the first book that I read by her called “Just As Long As We’re Together” and second, when I read the synopsis of this book I thought WOW this book sounds very interesting and unique. I have never read something that had to do with religion before and I thought that this would bring me out of my comfort zone a little. It’s always good to try something different, right?!
Margaret shares her secrets and her spirituality in this iconic Judy Blume novel, beloved by millions, that now has a fresh new look.
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.
“As long as she loves me and I love her, what difference does religion make?”
