Mallory and the Trouble With Twins was my favorite BSC book as a kid. I loved the Bellairs shopping trip, and the idea of the twins’ clothes expressing their personalities, and the presents they got for their birthdays. Rereading it now, though, there is one passage that just really bothers me: Mrs. Arnold showed me [...]

Five minutes earlier, Lynn’s parents had finally left. My uncle Russ practically had to shove my aunt Peaches out the door. “What if she starts running a fever?” Peaches asked, clutching Lynn as if she couldn’t bear to turn her over to me. “What if she falls out of her crib?” “Claudia knows what to [...]

There is something incredibly satisfying about having every BSC book, their pastel, basically uniformly-thick spines all lined up on a bookshelf. Followed, of course, by the normally white, thicker spines of the Super Specials, the dark-hued spines of the Mystery Series, the Super Mysteries, the Portrait Collection… you get the picture. I have seen many [...]

Today I was thinking about how fun it would be to dress as a BSC member for Halloween. Unfortunately, I don’t have enough female friends who are willing to dress up as the BSC with me for the costume to really work. Have any of you ever dressed up as the BSC for Halloween? What [...]

I just finished The All-New Mallory Pike . This book is a favorite of mine, probably because I myself am a Boarding School Survivor.

The Miss BSC Pageant is close to showing which BSC book is the most popular, and Stacey books and Mallory books predominate. The Stacey-Goes-Bad arc (which consists of Stacey and the Cheerleaders, Stacey’s Lie, Stacey vs the BSC, and Stacey and the Bad Girls), which happens to be my favorite, seems to be especially popular.

A great tragedy befell me and my computer totally crashed. My hard drive ate itself and did not even understand that it was supposed to be a computer. It is fixed now, and everything was backed up, but it is still a pain in the ass. I spent a little bit of time at my [...]

I wrote a post and wordpress ate it. Super. It was about how Mary Anne is how Ann wishes people see her, but inside she feels like nerdy, mouse story-writing Mallory. Mallory is the only BSC-er who is not attractive. Mallory is the repository of all of Ann’s insecurities. And that is why Mal was [...]

First, some referrals. “stacey+bret+michaels”–while i agree that they have a lot of in common–blond, type I diabetes, tight pants, and willing to make out with a lot of people–I’m not sure why you’d google it. Perhaps there is some fanfiction in the works? “bsc+blog+greer” omg I have real fan/stalker. Awesome. “biography+ellen+miles” Who is that interested [...]
