Are You There, God? It's Me, Margaret - 80/152 pg

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

The party preparations are pretty hilarious. Thank god I grew up a little further into the 70's when we were all a little more wash-n-wear:



My mother washed my hair at two o'clock. She gave me a cream rinse, too, so I wouldn't get tangles. She set it in big rollers all over my head. I sat under her hair dryer. Then she *filed* my nails instead of just cutting them like usual. My velvet dress was already laid out on my bed along with my new underwear, party shoes, and tights.


What *is* familiar, though, about a preteen party, is all the excitement, and constantly calling my friends on the phone over every detail and speculating about who would be there and what would happen.
