Rereading My Childhood – A Year With the BSC #7: How, Mary Anne, How?

A Year With the BSC is an informal series wherein I explore the 1990’s CD-ROM video game The Baby-sitters Club Friendship Kit. The game is more of a personal organizer; it features with a calendar, an address book, a stationary kit, a flyer maker, and a personality profile. I’m focusing on the more interesting aspect of the game: the personalized letters and the journal entries. The full list of entries can be found at

The BSC is finished talking about summer camp and are focused on Abby and Stacey’s trip to Sea City with the Pikes.


It’s troubling that Abby thinks there’s a possibility the BSC won’t miss her. She’s the newest member so she might be unsure of her position in the club.


Dawn just came back from California, and I’m sure she doesn’t want to do another trip, even if it’s just a car ride and not a cross-country plane ride. I don’t blame her.


Mary Anne is nice. She’s the nicest member of the BSC. That’s sweet advice, Mary Anne, but what do I do when my friend starts spouting fundamentalist dogma she got from our favorite bigot and crazy man the 45th president? How do we evolve as humans if we don’t hold each other accountable? How, Mary Anne, how? Because I genuinely don’t know and I am open to suggestions from preteens.
