-Ah, man, the Marc subplot really got to me in this one. Specially the part where his disability gives Claire and Margo pause, because up to that point they thought he could do everything they did. That’s such a sad growing-up moment. Also, Stacey crying herself to sleep thinking about it and his parents getting choked up at Disney World. : (

-D’awww, Mal has Harriet the Spy fever.

-Byron is my fave triplet (isn’t he everyone’s?) so I was very glad to see his POV here! Extra nice to see Nicky and the triplets getting along too.

We could use it to look for treasure in lots of places. It doesn’t have to be a map for treasure on Treasure Cay. <3<3<3 This is such a great kid-thing. I love their determination to continue the treasure hunt no matter WHERE.

-OMG Kristy plowing past Mr. Staples’s old man grumpiness and teaching him to play video games! And teaming up with him for tournaments! <3

-Vacation Boyfriend alert! Looking back, I think the only BSC Vacation Boyfriend to get a really fleshed-out personality was Michel from SS15. Timothy is as not-normal as his sister – like, tone it down a little, dude. I did like Dawn taming Parker to the idea of stepsiblings, though.

-“Touchy, touchy,” said Dawn, who’s the only one I would have let get away with saying something like that just then. Hah, this is a really sibling thing to say (from both Dawn and Mary Anne) even though they’re not stepsisters yet.

-didn't enjoy the Karen chapters either but my peak SHUT UP KAREN feelings are in Super Mystery 1, lol


(And…did Ann just forget that Sam and Charlie were on the trip ¼ of the way through the book?? Seems like they boarded the ship then dropped off the face of the earth, lol. Guess they didn’t wanna hang out with a bunch of 13 yo’s and their charges.)
