Written in the point of view of a soon-to-be twelve year old girl named Margaret Ann Simons, it deals with a young girls many questions.
She is waiting to become a woman. She wants to start her period, grow a chest, and be "a normal girl". It's a super short book, only about 150 pages, so it was a super easy read, and I do think this is a perfect read for young girl going through her early stages of adolescence.
However, like I said it was published in the 70s, and includes some pretty old school stuff. For instance, at one point Margaret discusses trying on this belt that holds her pad...yeah, honestly I had no idea what that was??
For me personally, it was a bit tough sometimes just by young Margaret was. But like I said, this book is meant for girls around the age of 11-14. Also, I mean, I don't know about all you, but I had sort of a hard time relating to Margaret, because first of all I NEVER wanted to start my period! I thought it was disgusting! In fact, I screamed my head off the first time I got it. I was hysterical! Then also, I NEVER wanted boobs! I never understand girls who do??!! WHY??!! They are annoying!!!!
But yes, overall I recommend this book to young girls around the ages of 11 and 14! :)
