I thought it was sweet how he got Mary Anne that CD and tried to get her to the concert (too bad those tickets were stolen). I still can't believe that he didn't realize they were stolen earlier. Boys.
I always laugh when I hear him talk about Mary Anne's "sexy sequined outfit." That did sound a little....funny...to me. Geni
I thought maybe we could revive this thread. This is actually one of my least favorites. It always gives me a bad feeling. The part about stealing the cds in particular, and the part about the stolen tickets... anyone have any thoughts?
This book's probably somewhere in the 70s, I think. Best clue is to check if Dawn is there or in California and figure it out from there. I know the book is reference in Stacey and the Bad Girls, so it's before the thing when she quits the BSC, but as far as anything else, no clue.
This book didn't make me feel uncomfortable but I did feel sorry for Logan with King picking on him. I know how it is to have someone just making constant jabs at you - very annoying and troubling. I think he could have handled it differently than by getting involved with T-Jam, though. I was really happy that he told the truth and confessed - especially to the police - in the end and this let other kids feel that they could come forward. Also liked how the kids handled EJ in the subplot. Good messages about all it takes being one person to take the initial steps of standing up to a bully to lead the way because someone has to be first. (This person was usually me, though, and it often didn't turn out as good as in the BSC...) Anyway, I really liked MA in this book, too, and always find Logan pretty sweet (though maybe not normal for a guy) and funny when I read things from his perspective. I didn't mind this book too much but liked Logan's Story better, I think. I'll need to reread that one now.
I forgot to mention something that happened while I was reading this book. When I turned to the page where T-jam leaves the concert tickets in Logan's locker, there was a $100 of toy monopoly money. It just made me laugh as it seemed so appropriate for this book invovling stealing, blackmail, etc
^ I don't remember this part. Where was it in the book so I can reread just this part again. Poor Logan Getting picked on for being a sensative guy I like his descriptions and the way "he" writes, even though it may be weird for a 13 year old guy.
