Publisher's Summary

Margaret Simon, almost 12, likes long hair, tuna fish, the smell of rain, and things that are pink. She's just moved from New York City to Farbrook, 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 a religion, and that she isn't joining the Y or the Jewish Community Center. What they don't know is that Margaret has her own special relationship with God. She can talk to God about everything - family, friends, even Philip Leroy, the best-looking boy in sixth grade.

Margaret is funny and real. As you read her story, you'll know why this book has been the favorite of millions of readers. It's as if Margaret is talking right to you, sharing her secrets with a friend.

What the Critics Say

"If anyone tried to determine the most common rite of passage for preteen girls in North America, a girl's first reading of Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret would rank near the top of the list." (Amazon.com review)

    Story
    "First heard it when I was 10 and still love it!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely. It's a great book and Laura Hamilton does an amazing job narrating. She's great at changing her voice to fit each character and even the tone of her voice changes.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret?

    I love the entire book but my favorite part is when Margaret realizes Nancy is a fake and lied about her period. It shows Margaret has matured and had come to realize that Nancy isn't all she's cracked up to be.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I first heard this book on tape when I was about 10 years old. I loved it then (even though I wasn't entirely sure what was going on the whole story) and I still love it now. I've heard it over 100 times and still could listen to the story every night. It doesn't make me cry but I do laugh when I realize I was the same way at that age.


    Any additional comments?

    Great job Audible.com!

    Story
    "Hilarious and charming"
    Would you listen to Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret again? Why?

    Definitely! This was one of my favorite books when I was an adolescent. I am now 40 and listened to it for a class I'm taking - it was so much funnier than I remember. I thoroughly enjoyed re-experiencing this story from my current perspective.


    What about Laura Hamilton’s performance did you like?

    I thought the performance was great. I almost felt like I was listening to Margaret, not an audiobook.
