read-through: discussion post - #11 Kristy and the Snobs

#11 Kristy and the Snobs
Nobody's going to tell Kristy what to do - especially not the Snobs!

Welcome to the discussion post for week 11! Don't panic if you haven't finished Kristy and the Snobs yet - we're all in different time zones, so things will be a little bit staggered. The post doesn't have an expiry date on it, so just comment whenever you're ready.

This is the post to discuss your reading of Kristy and the Snobs.

What was your favourite part? What was your least favourite part? Any memorable quotes you'd like to share? What had you forgotten about since the last time this book was read?

There are no mandatory questions or points of discussion for this - anything you want to talk about in relation to this week's book, go ahead!

Okay at this point I think I'm about four books ahead of schedule and I'm going to have to start taking actual notes so I can remember what I wanted to say about each book once the discussion posts are open!

This one. I remembered bits of this one before I read it, I guess. I knew that this was the one where Louie died, but I didn't remember how that all went down. (And I'm not ashamed to admit that while I read that part this week, I was lying in the bath crying like a baby.) I remembered that Kristy and Shannon hadn't hit it off at first, but I'd forgotten that Shannon had been as much of a jerk as she was. I'd also forgotten that Shannon and Tiffany were introduced as quite close. It seems to have slipped my notice the first time I read this that the Snobs in the title actually referred mostly to the Delaneys, and not to Shannon et al.

One thing I did remember fairly clearly, although I didn't remember that it happened in this book in particular: SNAIL. Oh man, what a good game. I remembered that it was Stacey who introduced it, and if pressed I might even have remembered that it was the Delaneys she taught it to first. But if you'd asked me which book, I'd have come up totally blank. YAY, SNAIL!

Okay, that's all. :)

About the only thing I remembered about this one was Kristy and Shannon's prank war and then the Pepperoni Mountain Dog.

Kristy is surprisingly nasty in parts of this one, though she's reacting to the stress of moving and Louie's decline. Everything with Louie is really well written and some of the stuff Kristy was thinking was what I was thinking a few years back when I had to make the choice with a pet ('Is it right that I'm deciding it's time for him to die?' etc.)

I also remember somewhere late junior high when a friend got a $400 dog and that was part of every single statement about said dog.
