Happy St. Patrick's Day! No shenanigans here this week, we've got economic hardships and rampant sickness. Is it a modern novel?? No, we're back in 1845 Ireland, by way of 1990's Under the Hawthorn Tree by Marita Conlon-McKenna. It's a wild journey through the Irish countryside during the famine, with the poor O'Driscoll kids.

What's the difference between creeping and crawling? Nobody knows! Especially not Mallory, our sweet baby nerd, and newest member of the BSC cult!

Happy Valentine's Day, everybody! And what better way to celebrate the day dedicated to love than with numerous murders! Sit down with a box of chocolates while we discuss R.L. Stine's Fear Street Super Chiller, Broken Hearts. So many creepy angry boys, and so many times Jess laughs at teenage deaths. Plus what is possibly the best Fear Street murder of them all.

Ep 44 In the Breadbox of Friendship

12/10/2019
YOU. ARE. A. CRUMB. And that's how you insult a traitorous teenage girl, I guess. This week we REALLY start getting into the cult-like mentality of the Baby-Sitters Club, in Claudia and the New Girl. How DARE Claudia give more attention to ANYTHING ELSE other than baby-sitting! Ugh! And though the new girl is very focused herself, she may have also been ahead of her time fashion wise. Oh yeah, SO! MANY! FASHION ALERTS! Thanks for...
