In My Darling, My Hamburger, they talk about many topics amoung teens today. In the book a senior named Liz faces problems like: I love my boy friend, but do I love him enough to have sex with him; and If I do get pregnant what will I do? Will I have the baby or get an abortion? Paul Zindel did a great job writting this book. It expresses many problems that teens face today like dating, sex, teenage pregnancy, and many others. This book was one of the best books I have read ever.

I read this book when I was 12 and I read it at least once a year since then... Each time I read it I remember what it was like to be an akward teen going through the angst of my senior year. I've had friends like Liz and Sean and I was a Maggie once myself...

20 of 28 people found the following review helpful By E. R. Bird HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on July 8, 2004
Format: Paperback
Some early young adult novels (it's a fairly new form of literature, you know) age gracefully and seamlessly. I'm thinking of course of Robert Cormier's "The Chocolate War" and (to a lesser extent), S.E. Hinton?s, "The Outsiders". Unfortunately, I have a nasty suspicion that these books are the exception rather than the rule. For every "Forever" there's a "My Darling, My Hamburger" that contains a great story bogged down by changes in the world. While Paul Zindel's classic tale of four teenagers and their relationship problems is at times both moving and perfectly toned, mostly the problems presented in it are as dated as they come. Even a plot synopsis makes this apparent.

Friends Maggie and Liz aren't exactly close, but they hang out frequently together. Liz is the more beautiful and popular of the two with Maggie often following behind. When Liz and her boyfriend Sean decide to hook up Maggie with his friend Dennis, the blind date is as incredibly awkward as they come. Throughout the book the narrative switches between Maggie and her tentative relationship with Dennis and Liz's problems with Sean. Sean, like any normal teenager, is as horny as they come and is continually pressuring Liz to have sex. She'd like to, but she worries that it might end up in pregnancy. Unsurprisingly, that is exactly what happens and soon the big question in the book is whether or not Sean will do the honorable thing and marry Liz (!!) or if Liz will seek out an illegal abortion on her own.

It's this last plotline that struck me as dated. The book was originally written in 1969, a full three years before Roe V. Wade and in many ways this abortion issue (while it still looms large) isn't the same.

Format: Paperback
Book: My Darling My Hamburger
Author: Paul Zindel
Number of Pages: 122
Publisher and Publication Date: 1969 Harper and Row publishers
ISBN: 0-553-27324-8
Price (if available) and whether it is paperback or hardback: Hardback
Imagine if you had parents that never trusted, or that never would believe you. Or even worse what if you had a stepparent that would call u some pretty bad names and your mom would take his side. Well that is kind of what this book is about.
The main characters in My Darling My Hamburger are two girls named Liz and Maggie. They are of course best friends. They are also both seniors in high school. It is about time for prom and they both have dates. But you'll never guess what happens next!!!
I think that this book is a really good book. Personal I loved My Darling My Hamburger. It has a really good moral. It was just like a real story. Everything in this book is based on what is happening in real life. That is just my opinion.
When I read this book it reminded me of one of my friends sister. She has just graduated and basically the same thing that has happened to one of the girls in this story. I am not going to tell you the rest but I guess that you will just have to read and find out for your self.
I would definitely recommend this book to People in 6th-9th grade. The main gender that would want to read this book would be girls because of what the story is based on and because they can relate to it the best. The people that wouldn't like this would be boys. Why? Because of what it is about.
If you really want to know what happens then I guess that you will just have to read and find out what happen next.

Format: Hardcover
my darling,my hamburger is one of those books about the difficulties of being a teenager and yes,i remember
those years. i think the teen years are the most difficult-not a child/not an adult-caught in between two worlds.
there are four main characters:sean(handsome,smart guy,),liz( the beautiful one),maggie(nice,pretty one,best
friend of liz),and dennis(tall,awkward). without me explaining the whole book,i will use questions to explain
the gist: does she like me? do i look ok in this dress? will he kiss me on the first date? why doesn't she
talk to me anymore? what is this sex thing? do girls feel the same? wrrrrrrrrrrrr!(teacher blowing a whistle).
i think we all get the idea. i suppose these are typical teenagers even though this was written in the late
1960s. i did like the story but,it was not a classic. i thought it was a nice afternoon read-that's all.
**********for inquiring minds,curious about the unusual title of this book,the"my hamburger" part of it refers
to something a teacher said to one of the characters about,how to stop a young man from wanting to,"go all the
way"???----GO GET A HAMBURGER!?!?(MAYBE NOW THAT MAKES SOME SENSE!!!)*************
