BSC#10- Logan Likes Mary Anne!


BSC#10- Logan Likes Mary Anne!

Plot- Mary Anne has a crush on the new boy in town, and he might be joining the BSC!


Cover.

Love it! You know you’re in for something awesome when the title of the book includes an exclamation mark! As a tween Logan from this cover really was my dream boy. And Mary Anne is wearing a giant baggy sweater and has a headband with a bow on the side of her head and is chewing her fingernail gazing up adoringly at Logan- it’s all so cute!

Notes.

-This book is the start of the endless year of eighth grade- if only they had known how many dances, Halloweens and babysitting jobs they’d have to endure before graduation.

- I adore Mary Anne’s crush on Logan. He looks just like her favourite movie star, she dresses up when she’s going to see him, she can’t even talk when she’s around him…it’s all a sign of true love.

- Look, I try to be open minded and not subscribe to gender norms too much, but the basic idea of a thirteen year old boy, rocking up to a bunch of girls he’s never met and saying how much he loves to babysit? Kind of weird.

- Mary Anne of the enormous crush gets to decide whether Logan is a good babysitter. I don’t feel they’re really taking her bias into account here!

- He doesn’t want to join the club after all that, but he asks her to the Remember September dance!

- They all go shopping to glam Mary Anne up for the dance, which means outfits! “I tried on a green sweater dress that made me look like a mermaid, and a yellow sweater dress that made me look as big as a house.” Sweater dresses…oh no. They’re not a good look for anyone.

- And then they find it, the ultimate babysitters club book outfit, Mary Anne’s famous cities skirt! “Claudia handed me a full white skirt with the words Paris, Rome, and London, and sketchy pink and blue pictures of the Eiffel Tower, the Tower Bridge and other stuff scrawled all over it. She matched it up with a pink shirt and a baggy pink sweater. I would never, ever have tried on that skirt, but with the shirt and sweater it looked really cool. In the shoe department we found white slip-ons with pink and blue edging that matched the pink and blue in the skirt. I’d never have looked twice at those shoes either, but with the rest of the outfit they were perfect.”

- Dance outfits are always so much fun. Aside from Mary Anne in her new threads, “Claudia was wearing short, tight fitting black pants and a big white shirt that said BE-BOP all over it in between pictures of rock and roll dancers. She had fixed a floppy blue bow in her hair. Stacey was wearing a white t shirt under a hot pink jumpsuit. Dawn and Kristy looked more casual. Dawn was wearing a green and white oversized sweater with stretchy green pants. Kristy was wearing a white turtleneck shirt under a pink sweater with jeans.”

- I have to say that I always laughed at Mary Anne’s shoe flying off, but I also feel her pain. Lesson#109 from BSC books- don’t wear slip-on shoes to a dance!

- We know Stacey is so super sophisticated and all, but having people bring dates to her party is just pretentious. You’re eating pizza and candy in a basement, not going to a Regency Ball.

- Mary Anne running away from the surprise cake? NO ONE is that shy. And besides, someone who hates sports like Mary Anne would never run.

- However all ends up well, they all make friends and Mary Anne adopts Tigger, the kitten who never grows up.

 

Number of Halloweens- 1

Number of school dances- 2

I always loved this book. I like Mary Anne, there’s lots of outfits, and Logan is just the ultimate in non threatening boys for a tween girl to have a crush on!
