This is amazing, thank you so much! I had a list at one time of the books in the order they were released, and now that I have rescued them from my parents house, I've been trying to figure out the correct order on my own. This is such a help!!
Yay, I'm glad. The release date order was not always the same as book happening order. Lol, I found that out the hard way when I was making this list. Ann & Co really ought to get a prize for being so sneaky in terms of trying to disguise "time."
I've been meaning to pose this question for awhile now. I figured out the two choices for where "Sea City, Here We Come!" should go timeline wise. This is confusing to sort out so bear with me. I tried to make it simple but lol as you know in Stoneybrook there is nothing "simple" about time!
Mrs. Barrett and Franklin DeWitt first meet (we are introduced to Franklin) in "Dawn's Family Feud."
Mrs. Barrett and Mr. DeWitt become engaged in "Dawn and Whitney, Friends Forever." That was when MA gushes over Mrs. B's ring and bombards her with wedding questions.
Finally, in "Sea City..." Dawn had not yet moved to CA (for the first time).
We are told in "Sea City, Here We Come!" that Mrs. B is Franklin's fiancee. (Remember she had only met him 2 books earlier)!
Do we "overlook" the finacee typo and leave the book be after "Stacey's Big Crush" Or should we overlook Dawn "living in CT" and put it as an "alternate" summer book to "BS' Remember?" (BSR is right after DWFF).
Does this really matter? Probably not, except I spent so much energy on the timeline that, might as well, "finish" it once and for all. I think it should go later simply because I don't think the Barrett/DeWitt kids could have ever tolerated each other, even for a few days, so early on.
^Thanks, Rachel. I don't have any of those books. I'm just not a Karen fan, I'm afraid. I have thought about collecting all of the above so I would have totally complete set, but for the few moments of non Karen in them, it's just not worth it. Maybe one day though, I'll change my mind. Welcome aboard, though.
