This has always been my favorite BSC book (If you can't tell from my avatar). It was the first one I read. My dad was in the hospital and my poor mother had to figure out how to keep a nine year old occupied. This was part of a stack of books she picked up. Little did she know that it would start a monthly trip to the bookstore to pick up the next book.

Back to the book. This book marks so many huge things in the books. The girls starting 8th grade for the first time is probably most significant. Poor MA actually thinks she will start high school next year. We also get introduced to 3 major characters (Logan, Tigger, and the Walking Disaster himself). And who could ever forget the famous cities skirt? I wanted one so badly LOL.

Okay, I read this... a week ago now? And I can't remember a huge amount about it now, lol. So, perhaps not destined to be one of my all-time favourites...

But anyway, true point about this being an important book because they started grade 8 (all unknowing that they would be stuck there perpetually, poor things), and what would the rest of the series have been without Logan, Tigger, and Jackie??

I always like reading about MA's relationship with her dad. I know he's introduced for the entire rest of the series as "used to be really strict but has loosened up a lot but is still kind of strict", but he doesn't actually strike me as all that strict. He lets her date and go to boy-girl parties and stuff and all he ever does is ask reasonable-parent questions like will there be adults there and how are you getting home?

Oh, now I remember what the other plot was. MA's disastrous surprise party. I felt bad for both MA and Stacey in this situation, because Stacey really did know that MA wouldn't like a whole surprise party, and tried to do something nice for MA while keeping in mind what would make her really uncomfortable. She just hadn't counted on MA being even shyer than expected (which, again, if Stacey mostly only sees interacting with the other BSC members, she wouldn't have known).

I didn't remember a thing about this one, despite it being a really important book.

I agree with some of the posters above - Mr. Spier doesn't seem terribly strict at all at this point.

All the Cam Geary stuff made me smile. I think the first time I read it, I was too young for it all to click.
