Conhecimento Comum




I'd always meant to read this book and never got around to it until now. Now I know, if I get back to the Public Library, whether to recommend it. It seems like it might depend on how devoutly attached someone is to a particular religion, whether they'd like it. If it's not cool with someone that a young girl be brought up without some sort of church experience, and told to pick a religion by herself, that person probably wouldn't like the book.

I'd forgotten much of this except that it was really good, and it still is.

Margaret may not be what would be termed "religious", but is she is by far the character with closest relationship with God in this book, mainly because of her honesty and plainspokenness in her prayers, and as a result of this real relationship, He gives her exactly what she wants. Spirituality aside, this novel is down-to-earth and genuine about all the myriad anxieties and problems pre-teen girls go through and Blume is not afraid to blatantly say what she thinks and reveal things as they are, inappropriate as they may seem to some stiff-necked readers. I may not be the one to say it, being a guy and all, but I think any girl struggling with the twinges of puberty may find calm and understanding with this book, and know that she isn't alone. I think it would also be of great benefit for boys to read it too, if you could ever convince them of it.… (mais)
