Quiz: Which Fictional Heroine From a Classic Tween Book Are You?

If your tweenhood was anything like mine, you spent a considerable amount of time reading books about girls your age going through the same stuff you were (dreading/wishing for your period, making friends, annoying your older siblings), and maybe some stuff you weren’t (being adopted even though you weren’t a boy, spying on your neighbors and writing it all down in a notebook).

  1. I was hoping for Ramona but I got Margaret from Are You There God? It’s me, Margaret by Judy Blume.

    I secretly read this book, after my mother decided that it was too old for me. It was the last book she tried to keep me from reading.

    I don’t remember much about this book – I was more of a Beverly Cleary reader than Judy Blume – but the description is pretty spot on.

    “You are earnest, inquisitive, and spiritual. You’ve learned the hard way the importance of thinking for yourself, as you used to try too hard to fit in with the cool kids who didn’t appreciate you for who you are. You’re also keenly aware that it’s important to accept uncertainty as part of life. You can’t stand either/or thinking and prefer to accept that reality is more complicated than that.”

  2. I knew I had to take this twice as soon as I saw the question about what you wanted to be when you grew up. I definitely wanted to be a spy or a teacher. Maybe both.

    Luckily, I got Staggerlee both times. Not sure how I missed a Jaqueline Woodson book, but I’m adding The House You Pass on the Way to my to read list now.

    Side note: anyone know where to find a moon pie without gelatin? Do they exist??

  3. I took the quiz, but was devastated when I couldn’t list “Tasha Yar, played by Diane Crosby, from ‘Star Trek: The Next Generation'” as my first celebrity crush. :-(
