Margaret Simon, almost twelve, chats with God a lot:
—Don't let New Jersey be too horrible (she's just moved from New York to the suburbs).
—You know God, my new friends all belong to the Y or the Jewish Community Center. Which way am I supposed to go? (she's "no religion" and getting no help from her parents).
—I just told my mother I wanted a bra. Please help me grow God. You know where.
—I can't wait until two o'clock God. That's when our dance starts. Do you think I'll get Philip heroy for a partner? It's not so much that I like him as a person God, but as a boy he's very handsome (all her friends in the secret club agree).
—I'm going to temple today—with Grandma. I've never been inside a temple or church. I'll look for you God.
—Gretchen, my friend, got her period. I'm so jealous God. . .. Nancy's sure she's going to get it soon, too. And if I'm last I don't know what I'll do. Oh please God. I just want to be normal. .. .
JUDY BLUME has written a picture book, The One in the Middle Is the Green Kangaroo, and another novel for young people, Iggies House. She lives in Scotch Plains, New Jersey with her husband John, daughter Randy, son Larry and cat Munchgin.
