Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret. Chapter 4

By Judy Blume

Chapter 4

  • It's the first day of school, and Margaret's ready in her new back-to-school dress and loafers with no socks—per Nancy's instruction and against her mom's advice (blisters).
  • Here's a shocker: Margaret's mom was right, and by the time she gets to school she's got crazy blisters… and plenty of the other girls are wearing knee socks anyway. Ugh.
  • School starts and it turns out that Margaret's teacher is a super nervous guy by the name of Mr. Miles J. Benedict Jr.
  • After introducing himself, he has the class fill out an introductory questionnaire of sorts covering their names, nicknames, likes, hates, goals, and thoughts on male teachers.
