Margaret is an eleven going on twelve year old who is dealing with some major issues in her life. A new town with a new school, new friends, a new body that is changing in ways that she doesn't understand, and deciding about religion. This coming of age book was one of the first to deal with all of these topics in a fresh and honest way. The book kept me wanting to read more the farther I read and I like Margaret's character. The book was a little predictable but was very sweet and a good read.
