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

Margaret Simon is 11 years old and her world is being turned upside down. Her parents decide to move her to the suburbs of New Jersey just as she's about to start 6th grade and puberty is taking a bit longer than Margaret would like to start working its magic. All the other girls in her new school are starting to wear training bras and crush on boys but Margaret just isn't quite there yet. She really wants to fit into her new school though, so soon Margaret finds herself a member of the super-secret PTS club - which stands for the Pre-Teen Sensations. While getting to know her new friends, Margaret also learns a lot about herself, her values and life in general. A must-read for all pre-teen sensations!


Starring Sally J. Feedman as Herself

This novel is set in 1947 - World War II is over and Sally and her family are headed to Miami for some fun in the sun. Sally is the kind of kid who lets her imagination run wild and explore worlds you probably would never think of. Despite the book being set more than 50 years ago, Sally is a totally relatable character. She's going through the same things that most young girls are - she just puts a creative twist on them. Join Sally in her adventures by picking up a copy of the Best of Blume Box Set.


Iggie's House

When Winnie's best friend Iggie moves away to Japan, she is convinced she's going to have the worst summer ever. Soon though, a new family moves into Iggie's old house - and they have three kids for Winnie to play with. Perfect, right? Well, while Winnie is accepting of her new neighbors, the rest of her all-white neighborhood is not happy about the arrival of a black family in town. This is a great story of acceptance and tolerance.


Blubber

All of Judy Blume's novels deal with some sort of childhood issue and in Blubber it's bullying. Jill is an ordinary 5th grader who gets caught up in a mean game of name calling, just because the other kids in her class are doing it. She doesn't think to worry about the feelings of the girl they're making fun of... until the tables are turned on her. This is by far one of Judy Blume's best books and is based on a situation that everyone has been in at one time in their lives.

{I don't know much about Outertale, so pardon me if I get this wrong, but it takes place in space, right? You'll have to help me a bit. .} (("Um... Ok!" Papyrus accepts the sketchbook, opening it to a fresh page. "What do I do first?"))

"I'm fine, but thank you for the offer though!" Blue said happily, looking up for a moment, before continuing his work. (the story seems to be going nowhere in Underswap... a suggestion of visiting Outertale has been given)  (PunMaster smiled. "It's not too hard. You just have to practice. Want me to show you?" She offered)

{Oh. Well. I had hoped we could've done something with that... but, nvm then.} (Just saying, when a Sans uses a "short-cut", I like to pretend they creates a wormhole that goes into the void. Iron teleports, which is him warping space and time to make himself be in another place. He uses this power to also travel to other universes.)  When I saw nothing in that infinite nothing, I returned to my-... No, their house. I could smell spices and meat cooking, the scent wafting from an open window. ​I teleported into the kitchen to see Blue, as he had said, cooking tacos. ​"Need any help?" I had been cooking for myself most of the time, since I was almost never at home with Paps, so I had acquired some skill in the matter. ((Papyrus begins to see his face etched into the paper. "Wow! You're amazing! I-.. I couldn't do anything like that..."))

Papyrus was indeed not in the void. He'd been in the middle of teleporting to his room.  (She didn't respond for a little bit, erasing a few ghost like lines that worked as the original faint outline. "Us." She responded)

In the blink of an eye-socket, I had scanned the entire underground, blinking in and out of reality to check every possible location. ​He wasn't there. ​I checked the only other place left, teleporting into the infinite black that is the void. "Hello? Papyrus? Please tell me you're not in here. Did I miss you somewhere?" ​(("What are you drawing?" Papyrus couldn't tell from the early sketch.))
