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.

-- The dog and bone earrings are Stacey's!! I'd misremembered them as Claudia's.

-- So I decided to google the colorforms from Mary Anne's kidkit, since she was really specific about it. Turns out it's Miss Cookie's Kitchen (not Mrs), and unless a newer version exists, it's pretty vintage!


-- "The shattered eggman" is such a great description of Humpty Dumpty <3

-- One of the things Mary Anne noticed when she was looking into Kristy's window (and Kristy was ignoring her) was that she was talking to her mother. I feel like this is a callback to Kristy's Great Idea, where Kristy says that her mum makes time to talk to each kid one-on-one every day <3

-- Fun fact: whenever I see any mention of Camus, I think "oh, Richard Spier's yearbook quote!". Nice job, self. Much literature, very knowledgable.

-- Is this the first pizza toast? If so, awww! I feel like one might have happened in Kristy's Great Idea, but my copy is out of arm's length and I don't feel like looking it up ;)
