  1. My problem was not what she said to Lexie--everything she said was true and Lexie needed to hear it sooner or later. My problem was when and how she chose to do it. Yes, Mia has a right to be angry and hurt on behalf on her daughter, but lecturing a teen aged girl who *just had an abortion* and is a complete mess is not at all the time to do it. It's just cruel--but since I doubt Mia cares about cruelty, it is also ineffective. Lexie isn't going to absorb anything Mia said, but she will see it as Mia verbally attacking her, which will reinforce Lexie's problematic behaviors and beliefs.
  2. There still has not been an announcement either way...which is strange...
  3. Thanks to @ElectricBoogaloo, we now have a book questions thread. If you have not read the book and have a question, but do not want to be spoiled, please go to this thread. If you have not read the book and do not want to be spoiled, be advised that this thread is a spoiler thread and you should be in the book questions thread.
  4. She's also a 14 year old girl, which is not the easiest age. She's also dealing with something, her sexuality, which is hard for someone that age even now, but much harder in the 90s when it was less acceptable, or at least more of a novelty. I don't hate Izzy, but she is difficult. While I don't *like* a lot of the characters in this show, I think that is the point. FYI...I moved the answer to this to the Book Questions thread to avoid spoilers.
  5. It's not a requirement, but many posters do it as a courtesy so that the page is shorter.
  6. I find it interesting that, despite everything they've added to to the story, the show has not addressed Bebe's mental health issues. Honestly, I would have wished they would have toned down some of the other issues not in the book in order to continue this. So far, we've only had 5 episodes, so I guess it would still come up. But I also think if it hasn't yet, it never will. We shall see.
  7. I thought that was strange too. One on hand, the actor playing Jamie was too old to be playing a college senior... On the other...Reese Witherspoon is an actress who doesn't try to hide her age (which I actually appreciate...it's so rare!) so while she does appear to be a woman in her 40s there is still a girlish quality about her. It was one of my reservations about her in the role (although she has proved me wrong). Given that, I'm surprise they didn't up the make up or even use some Marvel anti-aging magic with her. Especially since the actress playing younger Elena was...not good. So, was this anachronistic? On the poster in the clinic office when Lexie went in, they had an IUD listed as a form of contraception. Weren't IUD's off the market in the 90s?
  8. Please remember that, for the purposes of the episode threads, the book does not exist. Any references to the book will be removed. You may discuss the book in the Book Talk thread.

  13. As I've book talk traffic from episode threads over here, I wanted to post a couple of reminders. 1 - This is a spoiler zone. Spoiler tags are not necessary. 2 - If you have not read the book, you will be spoiled in this thread. Thank you!
