If you had to point to just a few books that established the young adult genre in children's literature, Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret., would be near the top of the list. Incredibly scarce in first edition, this novel established Judy Blume as a major author in the field and introduced 12-year-old Margaret Simon, whose letters to God reveal all the coming-of-age anxieties common to those entering their teens: parents, first crushes, changing bodies, religion. Notably, Margaret's concerns about getting her period made this one of the most challenged and banned books in school libraries. A first edition in Fine condition in a VG dust jacket (with general wear, a chip at the head of the spine and light foxing and soiling). A classic.
