I read this book when i was in the 5th grade. it was so exiting! but not only that,it was also a book about a young girl who deals with the pressures of growing up.i can relate.i love this book so much. i will read it again and again.the 5th grade was hard for me, and this book's main antagonist is sharing the details of fitting in, and also learning self esteem. i'll give this book a thumbs up!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is a wonderful book about growing up and passing from childhood into young adulthood. Its a great read if you're in the age group or just remembering those times.

I think it's a good book, but if you don't know what puberty is I would NOT! read it.

I first read this book when I was a fifth grade student wrestling with "am I normal" and "who am I" questions back in the 70's. I just reread it this weekend with my fourth grade daughter, and I have to say this book is a timeless classic. True, it's showing its age (square dances, records, clothing, products, two-parent families) but the emotions, the characters, the struggles kids went through then are the same--albeit much higher tech and more complicated issues--now. I found myself remembering much of what it's like to be 11 or 12 as we read it, and my daughter had the same questions for me that I had then. She took to "we must, we must" just like I did! (laughing) A timeless classic and must-read rite-of-passage for pre-teen girls. Thanks, Judy Blume, for such an outstanding, honest book

I like this book so much because it's so relatable. Girls reading this book can relate to Margaret's feelings and thoughts. I like how the author mentioned stages through a young girl's life such as making new friends in a new city. Satisfying and worth reading.

My favorite part was when she made new friends in a new city and my favorite character was Margaret. The book talked about the tougher stages in life.
