Tea and Rain
I discovered the California Diaries when I was in the fifth grade and spread them around to my friends. Our librarian found out what they were about and was ~scandalized~ and limited them to 7th and 8th grades only. By the time we were old enough to get them from the library we had read them all on our own, lol. Ducky was my hero.

Ugh, all of these books were my childhood. The one Little Sister book where Karen found like some Secret Garden when they were visiting Maine was my jaaaam. Same with all the Super Specials, especially when they went to Sea City.

Now I even want to read the books that Ann M. Martin did with Paula Danziger, P.S Longer Letter Later...Graaah all my books are at home, damn you university!
