I loved the books because my mother couldn’t afford the dolls. It was reading and learning and entertaining and fun--all at once.

Yes! I had the books before I ever got one of the dolls and I still have the books. I re-read some of the Samantha ones as an adult and realized that the Nellie story lines have strongly informed my political views.

I loved my doll so much when I was a kid. I took it everywhere, slept with it every night, and read the books over and over again.

Belgravia existing on this map is much, much more disturbing than even the basic scariness of a Netflix Cinematic Christmas Universe. Vanessa Hudgens quite literally watches ‘The Christmas Prince' on Netflix in Belgravia! Are we meant to believe it's an in-universe DOCUMENTARY???

I love the Spirit of Christmas mainly because the ghost is the hottest of all Netflix’s holiday male leads.

I’m on Dessen’s side here, but I still think this is probably a great idea for all famous and semi-famous people.
