Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret. by Judy Blume

Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret., by Judy Blume, was published in 1970. Typically categorized as a novel for young adults, it is about Margaret, a preteen girl in sixth grade who has plenty to talk over with God.

She has one Christian and one Jewish parent, and the novel explores her quest for a single religion. She also confronts many other pre-teen issues, such as buying her first bra, having her first period, coping with belted sanitary napkins, jealousy towards another girl who has developed a womanly figure earlier than other girls, liking boys, and whether to voice her opinion if it differs from what her girlfriends seem to believe.
