Judy Blume has come to the aid of a distraught husband who accidentally threw out a his wife’s cherished copy of Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret.

The man had posted signs about the missing book in the Greenpoint neighborhood of Brooklyn, which someone photographed and posted on Instagram. The message read, “I accidentally gave this book away on Saturday July 25th in a box on the corner of of Green and Franklin Streets in Greenpoint. The book is extremely important to my wife. It was a keepsake from her mother and is irreplaceable. On the inside cover is a note that reads “Christmas 1991.” If you happened to pick up this book can you please get in touch with me.”

When the post was brought to Judy Blume’s attention, she tweeted that she would do her best to help:

Yes, Judy Blume really is a fairy godmother.
