This is going to seem like a stupid question, but I got 'Stacey's Lie' about a year and a half ago. What's strange about my copy is that it looks very short - about half the width of a regular BSC book. BUT it does have the standard 15 chapters and 162 pages. The reason for this is because the pages are very thin, definitely not like the paper on the other BSC books.
I'm just wondering if this is the case for all copies of book #76, or I just have a freaky rare edition.
Thanks in advance for comments, questions, or answers.
I'm not at home, but I'll try to get back with you tomorrow about this. I don't remember mine being any thinner than the others. I just sorted through my BSC books over the weekend and I don't remember anything odd about Stacey's Life. You might have a special one!
Check out my BSC blog! I'm brand new at it, so go easy on me. =)
My copy of Mary Anne's Makeover is exactly the same as your describing, and the paper is different,kind of smooth instead of the regular kind. Maybe there were a few printing runs where they did use different kinds of paper?....strange!

I think she meant why they printed a small amount of the skinny versions, not of the books in general. Mary Anne's Makeover was less than halfway through the series so it's not like the series was on its deathbed at that point. I wish the whole series was in the skinny versions. The smaller the books, the easier they are to store.
