I always get so mad at Claudia for searching Stacey's room and not totally supporting her. My family has been the victim of false accusations and it is so terribly hurting that it can effect your whole life. It's something you never really get over but the most hurtful thing is when your friends don't support you. I really feel for Stacey in this book.

^But she really refused their involvement after they were all "we'd like to believe you," didn't she? Even her parents didn't believe her at first...harsh. I'm not defending her not wanting their help, though...she totally should have let them.
I thought it was lame of Claudia for rummaging through Stacey's stuff without even trying to be discreet. ;D And Stacey was like "would I keep the ring in my jewelry box where any fool could find it?" Right on. Claudia hides stuff all over her room, she should know better.
^ As for Claudia, I think you're probably right. I am going to reread that one in the next few days as I can't remember it. ;D I did feel bad for her and should have felt worse for her. ;D Agree about her knowing better in the search. She's the ultimate hider. ;D
when i read this book as a kid i didn't know how much a diamond was. but Stacey would have known since she looked at the prices.... i thought that was stupid the gardellas never thought about their stupid cat. AND how they treated the animals..that was annoying. Oh, i thought it was dumb that STACEY helped find the ring. i think it would have been better if another girl any girl, found the ring herself and solved the mystery, because i mean i would htink that the gardellas would be bitches enough to say "i bet you put that ring there yourself!!!"
i've had that happen to me when some b*tch teacher lost her pen, accused me of taking it, then i found it and the jerk said "thank you for returning it" as if i STOLE it and got TIRED of it >> ARGHHHH
