Someone Found An Updated Judy Blume Cover That Just Feels Very Wrong
4 weeks ago

Author Judy Blume has given us the beloved books Summer Sisters, Wifey, and Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing, among many many others. One of the books she is best known for is Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret. The story follows the character of Margaret, the daughter of an interfaith couple, as she tries to find God. The book, first published in 1970, is world renowned for its frank discussion of topics such as religion, puberty, and sexuality.

ProPublica reporter Jessica Huseman noticed this new edition of the classic novel with a modern twist in its cover art:
