Two bookish blog-posts by yours truly

Can a Baby-Sitters Club Compete With Gossip Girls, Vampires and Our Memories? A BSC Fan Investigates (Essay) - Speakeasy - WSJ

But can the re-issued books, and the new prequel, live up to such vaunted memories? And the question on everyone’s mind: are these homework-completing heroines too innocent for today’s adrenaline and bitchiness-bred young readers?
For many young readers around the world, Anne Frank fits perfectly into the “heroine canon,” a long list of young adult and classic adult novels with feisty, introspective women at their core.
