Comments Maid Mary Anne

    this is my first time reading this book!in this irritating mary anne (I know, I know -- it's redundant) book by ghostwriter Nola Thacker, mary anne starts taking advanced sewing lessons from stoneybrook resident mrs. towne. when mrs. towne gets injured, mary anne starts paying for the sewing lessons by helping out around the house. but mrs. towne takes advantage of mary anne's "selflessness" by guilt tripping her into doing every little thing for her. meanwhile, mary anne teaches a sewing class [...]

    A Mary Anne book that's almost entirely about sewing?? It's like a dream come true. I can't see the title of this book without singing it to the tune of The Hollies (and now neither can you.) Mary Anne meets an old lady who, despite her "almost punk" haircut, is extremely into traditional old lady activities: tea, gardening, and quilting. (As a dressmaker myself I am a little dubious that she would say "times have changed" because of that newfangled device, the sewing machine.) She agrees to giv [...]

    I found this was very intensely boring. Nothing really of interest happened, except the start to dangle the "Dawn wants to go back to California for awhile" angle. Which is a perk, because I like anything that involves less Dawn!

  • Ciara

    i don't usually like mary anne books, but this one kept me surprisingly entertained. mary anne has become concerned that she is too self-centered after dawn tried to address mary anne's constant self-consciousness with the truism, "most people aren't even paying attention to you." way to completely misunderstand dawn's point in the most ironically self-centered way, mary anne. anyway, she decides to address this issue by being more thoughtful & helpful to others a special surprise for the ar [...]

    Mary Anne becomes the default gofer when her sewing teacher, Mrs. Towne, has a bad fall. A promising premise is hampered by poor execution. I can easily see how a well-meaning but pushover-inclined teenage girl could let herself turn slavish to a demanding but pitiable elderly lady. This could be very morally gray, making the lady increasingly unpleasant but also not a villain--she’s lonely and ill, and nobody else will help her, so she ends up putting too much stress on the nice girl and brea [...]

    Fantastic books for young girls getting into reading!! Great stories about friendship and life lessons. The characters deal with all sorts of situations and often find responsible solutions to problems.I loved this series growing up and wanted to start my own babysitting business with friends. Great lessons in entrepreneurship for tweens.The books may be dated with out references to modern technology but the story stands and lessons are still relevant.Awesome books that girls will love! And the [...]

    Mary Anne only stops being a doormat because she fears the wrath of K. Ron Hubbard. Check.An older woman, who presumably has been living by herself for quite a while, breaks her ankle and justys around waiting for someone to hear her yelling? I'm going to pretend that she just passed out from the pain, woke up and figured she'd call out before moving her ass so a neighboring cat wouldn't eat her face.The sexism b-plot with Nicky and Buddy was kinda nice, though.

    Mary Anne takes on a baby-sitting job that actually turns out to be more. Not only does she have to deal with little kids, she is also asked to do chores around the house that go beyond the norm that a babysitter would do. It is hard for her to say no because she is so nice, and she thinks that one extra chore can't hurt, but then it just piles on

  • Sally

    Mary Anne meets a little old lady who shares her interest in sewing, which is all very well and good until Mary Anne totally ends up being her maid and not realising for the longest time that she's being taken advantage of.

  • Brooke

    In this story a lady named Ms. Towne teaches Mary Anne to sew and she does house work Ms. Towne then breaks her ankle and Mary Anne becomes her Maid!!!!!!!!! She has no time to be with her friends or family! I like this book and I think you will to!

  • Tameka

    Not my favorite Mary Anne story, but still a fun read overall.

  • Marianne (Mazziebee)

    I haven't read a BSC since middle school, but I know I really enjoyed them then, and wanted to see if they were decent or complete trashI was pleasantly surprised at how good this book was!

  • Amy Holcomb

    The Baby-sitters Club series was my favorite growing up! :)

  • Maria Elmvang

    For a supposedly mature person, Mary Anne is awfully stupid. Even I felt like shaking her, and I usually like her!
