when I started reading The Toast, I knew very little about feminism, had never given art history a second thought, and was struggling with reconciling my faith with the dim understanding that queer people deserved love and happiness too. now I know a little more about a lot of things, thanks to all of you, and I'm working on helping my family understand that I'm chill with dudes and ladies. even for a lurker, this place has made me better.

The first book was definitely the best; I think I reread it twenty times. Then I discovered one of my parents' friends had an entire bookshelf full of The Boxcar Children books. I worked my way through them rapidly one summer and longed, LONGED to have my own boxcar in the backyard and to run about solving mysteries and having gentle fun adventures alongside genial siblings, with only occasional appearances by benevolent adults. I read several of the Mary Poppins books and while I enjoyed the setting, she was an almost terrifying figure. Given the choice at that age, I would rather have lived in the Aldens' world than the Banks'.
