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. .. .
