Read Through: BSC #4 - Mary Anne Saves the Day

Mary Anne Saves the Day


Welcome to the discussion post for week four! Don't panic if you haven't finished Mary Anne Saves the Day 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 Mary Anne Saves the Day.

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? If someone wrote a fic set during the timeline of this fic, what should they write?

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!

Next week's book is BSC #5 - Dawn and the Impossible Three.

In this re-read I am not really feeling that Richard is OMG SO STRICT.

I'm getting less "strict" and more "doesn't know what to do with a 12-year-old girl". It's pretty clear he doesn't know how to let her grow up, IMO. I can see how Mary Anne and her friends would interpret that as strict, though, especially when she compares the rules she has to follow (about her clothes, and her room, and so on) to what her friends get away with.

How relaxed! It's "just barely 5:30" when Kristy and MA stroll in and Stacey's not there.

Getting "The Look" from Kristy hasn't been introduced yet. ;)
