Knowing me, I probably won't get around to reading this for another few years. I'm curious about the format. Is it like a super special with alternating chapters or like BSC Remembers where each girl got a section of the book? Or like the Traveling Pants books where everything just flows together? Or none of the above? Does it feel like a BSC book? I have too many questions, I should just go buy the thing...
It's like a super special with alternating chapters. And yes you should just go buy the thing. I actually somehow wound up with two copies. (My sister bought them for me off of amazon.) But i'm already planning to give the extra copy of mine to a friend who was also a huge fan and is a grade school teacher. (She has just about the entire series in her classroom.)
Ahh, I haven't posted my thoughts yet! I don't think I have much to say, except that the book was simple and sweet and I was very satisfied with it. I think I enjoyed Kristy's chapters the most, which is unusual, considering I usually can't stand her in the books. Kristy was very likable and real in the early books, and in this prequel. I liked that the girls seemed so young in this book, like real 11/12-year-olds.
One small WTF? comment: On Kristy's birthday, she gets a birthday card/present from her mom's old college roommate??? And a birthday card signed by every person in her mom's office? Who the hell gets a card/present from her parent's roommate from 20 years ago or a card signed by a bunch of people whom she's probably never met?
