Trivia and facts related to the book:

Judy Blume says that although Margaret is fiction, the story is based on the kind of 12-year-old she was. "Growing up, we did have a club like The PTKs. And Margaret's interests and concerns were similar to mine. I was small and thin when thin wasn't in. I was a late developer and was anxious to grow like my friends. Margaret was right from my own sixth grade experience. I wanted to tell the truth as I knew it." (Scholastic interview)
