Read Through: BSC #7 - Claudia and Mean Janine

Claudia and Mean Janine


Welcome to the discussion post for Claudia and Mean Janine! This post doesn't have an expiry date on it, so just comment whenever you're ready.

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 #8 - Boy-Crazy Stacey

I will never understand this when Stacey and Dawn's handwriting is so much more legible.

This made me laugh because my handwriting resembles Mary Anne's! I definitely tried to emulate it as a kid and I guess it stuck. :X

I loved Auntie Nora's swizzle sticks! And since Auntie Nora is mentioned later, it is so obviously something she gave them as a wedding present that they had to get out because she was coming. I love when the characters seem real, especially the adults. And it's kind of cute reading the kids' puzzlement at adult behavior now as an adult.

-I always thought the Nancy Drew objection was AMM’s pre-emptive strike against those who might object to their kids reading BSC books

-Mal has triplet bullshit radar, bwahaha.

-I love that Claud knows EXACTLY how Mary Anne and Mimi will be sitting!

-I also thought the reference at the beginning to both of them going away was talking about Sea City! The early books were just so consistent with the connectedness that I just assumed.
