Description

I’m a bookish nerd on a mission. I’m rereading the books of my ‘90s childhood: The Baby-Sitters Club, Goosebumps, and Fear Street, and writing a review and summary, so you don't have to read them yourself. I’m Amy A. Cowan and this is Rereading My Childhood - The Podcast. Join me as I read about surprisingly organized middle school clubs, pranks that end in murder, and goo. Lots and lots of goo.
