Out of all the secondary and tertiary characters in the series, whose Portrait(s) would you most like to read?
1) Cokie Mason. The BSC's enemy from her own perspective. We get a little of it in Starring the BSC!, but she is quite inconsistent--cf. her pride over reading six Beatrix Potter books--and I really want to know what kind of person would pull all kinds of trickery to get (eww! yuck!) Logan Bruno to go out with her.
2) Maggie Blume. I'd like to know more about Maggie's pre-CA Diaries life, when she was all "LA futuristic cyberpunk," and plus growing up in the middle of the Hollywood scene must have been pretty interesting.
3) Cary Retlin. Cary's the best part of the later series for me, and I'd like to know more about Stoneybrook's own riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma.

1. My very favorite series character, Mimi. I would love to read more of her story and history, including about her husband and their early life together. Maybe my other favorite series character Louie, could somehow have a tie in.
2. Since my favorite BSC client is Jamie Newton it might be fun to read more about his family.
3. Mr. Staples from "Baby-sitters' on Board." Perhaps in that "book" he could have kept up a friendship with Kristy regardless of whether he and Nannie hit it off.
mimi, mrs stevenson, and cary are all characters that don't talk about their history much and i think it would be pretty cool if they had portraits so we could learn more about them. they are also some of my favorite characters, or at least in rachel's case, i don't have the disdain that others have for her.
I'm going to pick Jill Henderson (at least I think it's her last name) but only after Dawn and the others ditched her in CD.
Ooh, I like this one! Jill left such a big impression on me after reading California Diaries. I can't imagine how devastating it would have been to have been dumped by her tight-knit group of best friends in such a humiliating way - seriously, that's the kind of stuff that can scar a person for life. I also feel like she might have had some issues, like she wasn't able to deal with her life when she started high school and was trying to find ways to cope. I spent more time wondering about Jill than most other characters in the BSC universe.
