I’m a whopping 15 years older than Annie and Jason, but I was still able to very much relate with both of them. I thought they were incredibly well-written for 10 year olds, as I got a sense of their youthfulness and energy, along with the beginnings of pubescent awkwardness. Annie was so optimistic and naïve, constantly having ideas and insisting that things were done a certain way, so I can […]

It’s really tough to explain, but I will try my best. […]
