my bias against mary anne strikes again. okay, so, mary anne's english class is doing a group project on william shakespeare. mary anne is assigned to a group with gordon brown (who was a good sport about having to partner with howie johnson on the egg baby project), barbara hirsch, & amelia freeman. barbara & amelia are best friends & mary anne likes both of them, though we have never heard of them before. they decide to write a newspaper about shakespeare's historical time period, ...more

I don't remember this book, but I have an old diary where I wrote a note to my friend apologizing for laughing at her for crying when she read this. I told her, "I am crying too."
Fantastic books for young girls getting into reading!! Great stories about friendship and life lessons. The characters deal with all sorts of situations and often find responsible solutions to problems.

I loved this series growing up and wanted to start my own babysitting business with friends. Great lessons in entrepreneurship for tweens.

The books may be dated with out references to modern technology but the story stands and lessons are still relevant.

Awesome books that girls will love! And the
I'll admit it, I got teary eyed. Mary Anne and the Memory Garden is a BSC book where the girls learn to cope in their own way after a classmate is tragically killed. I like the BSC books where they deal with an issue like this.
At this point in my BSC reading career, I vaguely recall being disappointed at the random new things that would seem thrown into the books. Mary Anne was my favorite character, but she seemed way too sappy in this book.

I remember reading this at the age of nine and thinking about how different it was from the usual BSC books. They'd dealt with serious issues in the past, but this book just had a generally serious feel all throughout.
In which a character we know nothing about and have never seen before - meh, maybe she was mentioned in passing in a previous book to set this one up, but not much - dies and MA is traumatized.
Aw, this one was sad. Quite a good book, so different to any of the previous ones.
