Haha oh the odners! Soooo in the chronological book timeline, this one comes right before Stacey's choice. How come dawn left for three weeks and they were in crisis, but Stacey really missed about the same when her mom was sick but now they didn't need a sitter to replace her? Oh bsc you make my head hurt sometimes!

I noticed something weird in this book, when Mal and Jessi are getting ready to take the Pike kids to the health fair. Nicky says he gets the downstairs bathroom first, Mal tells him to share it, and Nicky gets all embarrassed and says he needs privacy. Really, Mal, why would you automatically assume that someone who's in a rush to use the bathroom just wants to wash his face or brush his teeth or something? Wouldn't it occur to you that he might need to use the toilet? A lot of people would consider that the main purpose of a bathroom.
It doesn't really segue smoothly from a discussion of using the toilet, but I'd also like to mention that the Brunos' barbecue dinners sounded really good.

Re-reading this one for a second time and I don't like it as much as I liked it the first time. I find it kind of boring. I feel bad for Logan too. I think the girls are really selfish in this. I'm sure they could have managed a few weeks without all of their members. I don't see why Logan needed to suddenly become a full member while Dawn was gone. I know they said they were busy, but still. I liked reading the book through Logan's point of view, and to see him interact with the guys and his family though. I am enjoying that part, I'm just not enjoying it as much as I did the first time I read it. I did find the part where Jenny ended up on the track pretty funny.
I felt a bit sorry for Logan when it comes to his dad. It seems like Mr. Bruno only wants to talk to him about sports and Logan is forced to put on this fake, macho image.
I agree. Also sounds like Andy from The Breakfast Club to me. It seemed to me in that movie that Andy's father only cared that he got caught "screwing around" but not that he was screwing around. That's the way that I see Mr. Bruno.
Well, finally read this book. I don't remember reading the Logan's Story. If, I did. It was one time, a very long time ago.
First time, Logan went to the meeting, everyone was too quiet, it sounded like someone pass away. The way Mary Anne was crying.
Anytime, Logan was explaining things or talking. It reminded me of Virgo on here. (Since, his avatar is Logan picture.)
Logan, should went into the restroom with the boys. Even though the boys told them, they're parents allow them to use restroom alone. But, what parent allow their kids go to the restroom alone in public place?
I know in Great Lakes Crossing Mall. When use the restroom, in the middle of the mall. They're two ways get to the restroom. You can get turn around, if don't remember, which way you came from.
Alright showing of Logan's perspective but I didn't get why he liked athletics/track so much (it seemed in part to please his dad, otherwise there was just some enjoyment of the challenge) and the story was meh. Especially too bad that we were teased that the Pike kids wouldn't like the health fair and we never really find out how they or other clients ended up reacting to it. Kind of unpleasant to see Pete Black be a jerk to Logan, the only decent team mates were Austin and eventually Trevor. Jenny even briefly wanting to run felt a little out-of-character as did, to a lesser extent, Charlotte dismissing Kristy although the latter was fun.
