"Mary Anne Spier, for someone who's so shy, you sure can be — "- and that’s the book in a nutshell!

Ha, yes! Maybe that should have been the tagline ;)

But at the same time, I amused myself thinking that Richard probably fears she’ll put up "rebellious" posters of rock stars or whatever, but all she really wants is kittens!

Lmao I was thinking the same thing during that scene. Kittens, Richard! Kittens!

Mary Anne’s insights over the Prezzioso family are also really interesting

The Prezziosos are fascinating. As an adult I find myself way more interested in the adult characters and their various marriages/relationships/friendships and whatnot, but the Prezziosos' marriage intrigued me even as a child.

The scene where Mary Anne takes out her braids has stuck with me after all these years. I’m thinking Richard was probably struck by how much she looked like Alma.

I had that thought too. It's simultaneously heartwarming and heartbreaking </3
