Episode 75: Je Suis La Jeune Fille

OMG Dad is such a jerk! Welcome to chapters 3-6 of Paula Danziger's "The Cat Ate My Gymsuit," published in 1974. Alison and Jody recap all the Smedley goings-on, the Lewis household arguments, and the budding friendship between Marcy and Joel Anderson. We also learn about the deal with Wolf and those orange pits. The girls read three awesome letters (thank you Kate, Ingrid, and Helen!) and do a follow-up with Blume Head Bex on golf calligraphy sets. Come inside the Cocoon for over-the-top dramatic readings and laughs, with a shiny coat of nostalgia.
