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.

Okay, I've now reread the graphic novel!

One thing that really stood out to me in the scene where Richard is talking about losing his case (and Mary Anne is trying to find a moment to ask if she can have a later curfew) is how lonely Richard must be. Richard's frustration about it all really came through to me with illustrations & facial expressions, and it made me so sad for him. He needs an adult to be his support for these sorts of things, not his twelve year old daughter :(

Seriously. My notes say, Richard, please make some adult friends! I always headcanoned that he and Edie helped each other out some over the years (the previous book does describe the Spiers and the Thomases having dinner together), but she has longer hours at work or she's busy with her own kids, so he just unloads his end of the day troubles on Mary Anne. :(
