Real life got in the way for the past few weeks, so I've been reading but not commenting. Anyway, on with my thoughts.

-The B plot didn't really interest me because I couldn't keep track of all the kids, but I loved the A plot.

-Janine and Claudia! I love how as an adult I can understand a lot of the things Janine is trying to say, but it goes right over Claudia's head and turns into a fight, because it feels so believable to me.

-Mimi! I think it's really interesting that Mary Anne is the only person she really gets frustrated with during her therapy. Though oh my heart when they fight. :(

-I didn't feel much about Janine as a kid, but now I'm really feeling terrible for her! I feel like her parents and Claudia have decided she's only good at studying, and don't let her do anything else.

-MRS. KISHI IS THE WORST LIBRARIAN. Sorry, I am a children's librarian and the idea of keeping books from kids (especially non-objectionable books like the Nancy Drew series) is abhorrent to me. Maybe Claudia would do better in school if she was allowed to read more of the books she was actually interested in! Now I want a story about a new librarian who comes into town and starts butting heads with Mrs. Kishi over the collection.
