LOVE THAT LINE #9
“Everyone from the class guinea pig to the principal had magnificent memories of the older Gratch girls.”
by Alan Madison
This line says it all – Velma lives in the shadow of her sisters. The word magnificent depicts the extent to which Velma feels that, leaving the reader to wonder if she’ll ever measure up to her older sisters. Including the guinea pig in this line further exacerbates the feeling that Velma’s sisters left quite an impression on everyone. Underdog!
