    Beany is the antithesis of a Mary Sue she can never do anything RIGHT And she never, ever learns from her mistakes Even to the point of, once again, lying to her boyfriend about the location of a special item of jewelry.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here I am really starting to get why so many Beany fans don t like Carlton I liked the old good ol Carl who used to put the Malone s dinner on for them, etc But this Carl seems very void of personality He s all manners and stiffness with very little life and mirth to him I miss Andy Andy wasn t perfect but his chemistry with Beany was so muchbelievable I kind of feel like even though the author tells us how in love Beany and Carlton are, I just never quite believe it Surprisingly, I a I am really starting to get why so many Beany fans don t like Carlton I liked the old good ol Carl who used to put the Malone s dinner on for them, etc But this Carl seems very void of personality He s all manners and stiffness with very little life and mirth to him I miss Andy Andy wasn t perfect but his chemistry with Beany was so muchbelievable I kind of feel like even though the author tells us how in love Beany and Carlton are, I just never quite believe it Surprisingly, I also found Mary Fred to be kind of snooty in this She misses Dulcie s wedding, she practically rips Beany s bridesmaid dress off to wear herself, and then she doesn t help get Joe and Kay s apartment ready It s made all the worse because I don t think she s meant to be unlikeable here To be fair, does Dulcie grates quite a bit in this book But I do think people should besupportive to all the hard work that Dulcie does She s basically a good person she just comes on a little strong and brash sometimes And BeanyPOOR BEANY Will she ever learn from her mistakes Will anything ever turn out right for her How on earth can Kay and Joe survive in their first apartment without a kitchen sink or a bathroom sink Jennifer deserves way better than Jag I thought that she would end up being pregnant and that was the reason for the headache and the rushed wedding But of course I was wrong Still, that makes a lot of sense to me Overall, this wasn t my favorite Beany book It seems like the worse and most annoying traits of many of the main characters were really brought out in this plot I still can t really say I disliked it, though It s pretty hard for me to dislike a Beany Malone book Even when so many elements annoy me, I still manage to find them quite entertaining Reading this review with the mentions of boyfriends, rushed marriages and rud pregnancies makes it sound like this was some kind of trashy romance It s really not like that at all my review just sounds like that

    It is amazing when you read another old favorite and the great quotes you see in it This one is all about responsibility, marriage and being wise The Malone family are old friends of mine They taught me a lot, including frugal cooking But also, how real relationships have hard times These books are very realistic

    I enjoyed this the way one enjoys a sociological treatise on a fascinating subject that is mostly obsolete I was born ten years after this book was published, and grew up in a large metropolitan city in a middle class family, with two parents that had post secondary education My mother was about Beany s age in this book at the time, so while part of me is incredulous at the number of 18 year olds running off to be married, and skeptical about the plausibility as the plot, another part of me I enjoyed this the way one enjoys a sociological treatise on a fascinating subject that is mostly obsolete I was born ten years after this book was published, and grew up in a large metropolitan city in a middle class family, with two parents that had post secondary education My mother was about Beany s age in this book at the time, so while part of me is incredulous at the number of 18 year olds running off to be married, and skeptical about the plausibility as the plot, another part of me knows just enough being a history buff to know it s pretty accurate And it s backed up by the statistics at the US Census Bureau The median not average age at first marriage in 1962 for men was 22.7, and 20.3 for women FTR, my parents were 28 and 24 when they got married in 1965, and my H and I were 30 and 31 in 2003.It s also an interesting snapshot of mid century middle class society on two other levels as well in the pre reliable birth control era, a married couple was always gambling against becoming pregnant before it was planned and the ability of a young adult with no college education to obtain employment that will pay enough to live on and both of these are why this book really revolves around Kay and Joe.So, I liked it from the historical standpoint, because otherwise everything is so far outside of my frame of reference as to cause it to be unbelievable

    I m re reading my Beany Malone books I have the whole collection, via Image Cascade , and I think this is probably my least favorite All of Beany s most annoying qualities come together in this book and I just want to smack her upside the head Basic plot Beany s friends are all getting married, and she is sulking because she has to wait for 1 year and 9 months until Carl graduates from college And if I m not wanting to smack Beany, I m itching to smack Dulcie, who is so thoughtless around I m re reading my Beany Malone books I have the whole collection, via Image Cascade , and I think this is probably my least favorite All of Beany s most annoying qualities come together in this book and I just want to smack her upside the head Basic plot Beany s friends are all getting married, and she is sulking because she has to wait for 1 year and 9 months until Carl graduates from college And if I m not wanting to smack Beany, I m itching to smack Dulcie, who is so thoughtless around poor Kay.I guess I should accept by now that Beany doesn t really ever learn from her mistakes, but just keeps behaving this way inor less every book I do like the series overall, but mostly, I realize now, because of the other Malones, especially Johnny and Mary Fred

    The book was much as I remembered it you feel the anxiety of Beany for Kay and how conflicted she is as those around her have romances marriage proceeding at a different pace than she and Carl have chosen Have to love the Lilac Way kids

    Man, these girls live in a totally different world Twenty year olds getting married is a horifying prospect to me But not in this book These little families are built happily, happily So sweet.
