Looking at their birthdays, Mary Anne would have been 14 just after the start of 8th grade. Stacey, Dawn, Abby, Logan, and Shannon would have been 14 by graduation, and Mallory 12. So I guess that would have been to much to keep track of, and confusing for the reader.

I think i just confused myself on this lol, let me see if I can keep track of this. I put their birthdays (m/d) in the parentheses to help keep track.
So in books 1-9 the girls were 12 and turned 13 during that time period with Mary Anne having her birthday last.
Then time stopped.
By graduation day (it's set in June I think) Logan (1/10), Dawn (2/5), Shannon (3/17), and Stacey (4/3) would be 14 on their graduation. Claudia (7/11), Kristy (8/20), Mary Anne (9/22) and Abby (10/15) would turn 14 after their graduation still making all of them 14 as freshman. Assuming the graduation happens at the end of June, Jessi and Mallory would both be 12.
Whew that is a lot to keep track of. ALthough I did realize that Abby's birthday was majorly messed up in the books.
