  • MACKINAC on March 15th, 2013 - 9:50am


    I can’t believe I found the secret page!!! I saw twenty years so I thought okay AIO’s 25th anniversary was in October of 2012 which means that it happened five years ago, so 12 minus 5 is 7! It’s somewhere in the 2007 section. I was right! Don’t worry I won’t tell anyone, but BLUE FANG you kind of gave it away…

  • MACKINAC on March 15th, 2013 - 9:52am


    If it’s okay can I post with ya’ll??? Ya’ll being” BLUE FANG, WINNOW, AND AHSOKA TANO.

  • CopyKat on March 15th, 2013 - 1:47pm


    Oooo Can I post the things I like??


  • mikah on March 15th, 2013 - 5:17pm

    Thank you BLU FANG for inviting me. Don’t worry I won’t tell anyone your secret is safe with me.

  • mikah on March 15th, 2013 - 5:19pm


    Thanks again BLUE FANG.

  • Blue FANG on March 15th, 2013 - 5:33pm

  • winnow on March 15th, 2013 - 7:15pm

  • CopyKat on March 18th, 2013 - 8:20am

  • mikah on March 18th, 2013 - 9:29am

    So I just found this. Am I supposed to stay here or go to the link or what? ❓

  • Rosebud on June 30th, 2013 - 8:03am


    I guess I’ll check out the link.

  • Christian on September 20th, 2013 - 4:39am


    Wow! I didn’t know that Whit’s Flop had a different opening! I think I like the “Examples of Failure” opening better than the “Stan the Plumber” opening. I loved the spelling test part
    “Spell Soliloquy”
    LOL that was funny. Happy 25th Anniversary!

  • The kid on March 15th, 2016 - 10:02am


    Happy Birthday Odyssey! Even though it is really late!

  • Gisela on April 7th, 2016 - 12:04pm


    More like 28 (or 29?) years of AIO!!

  • Black widow on May 20th, 2016 - 2:06pm


    Hi Gisela! You said you wanted to meet me here??

  • Gisela on May 24th, 2016 - 8:21am


    Yes, Black Widow! Would you like to talk with me here? So I don’t miss any of your comments on the main page?

  • Black Widow on May 24th, 2016 - 11:09am


    Gisela, ya!! sure!! this can be our little secret chat place about things!
    So what was your fav book out of all the Melanie Dickerson books??? did you read the Beautiful Pretender?
    I love the cover for the silent songbird!!!

    ~Black Widow aka Marie or Brandyn (real name) Hey I figured out that I’m one of three Brandyn’s (spelled the same) in the U.S!! I’ve never heard the name Gianna before! Its really pretty! I hated my name for awhile but now I like it… a little… working on that part…<3

  • Gisela on May 24th, 2016 - 6:16pm


    Well, when you can’t find the link, just type in 20 years in the search engine, okay?
    I know, the cover was GORGEOUS!
    And, yes, I’ve read the Beautiful Pretender!! I got it the day it was released thanks to may great mom and her Mailing Website.
    Thanks about my name! I like yours. Too bad you can’t choose your name when you are born. I like mine, but would’ve chosen either Cecelia or Helen. LOL I’ve always thought those names were pretty.
    I’ll tell you a little about Beautiful…

  • Gisela on May 24th, 2016 - 6:22pm


    …Pretender. So. A young woman named Avelina is the servant to the spoiled Lady Dorthea. Reinhart, (a little old for me) the margrave, orders ten rich young women attend his party and in two weeks he will choose his bride. Avelina is put in a horrible situation and she must imposter Dorthea on the duke’s orders. When Avelina flls in love with the gruff man she must make a difficult choice: whether to tell Reinhard of her impostering or not.
    It was SOO good!

  • Gisela on May 25th, 2016 - 9:36am


    OOPS! I meant his name was a little odd to me!! 😳

  • Black widow on May 26th, 2016 - 8:32am


    Gisela, thanks! Um… ya I keep checking the library web to see if they have any of the Beautiful Pretender books but there all at one library and there are so many holds on those books!!:( So the Silent Songbird is a retelling of the Little Mermaid? So what did u do today? and next MY NAME IS BLACK WIDOW!!! hehehe, I’m kidding you can call me anything you want! lol. do you want to have like secret names for each other? Like @Leia calls me Nat for Natasha Romanoff (Black Widow’s real name) ~B

  • Black widow on May 26th, 2016 - 8:57am


    its a nice day out!! what about you? is it nice where you live? did you say you lived in Ohio? I have some friends who live there and some pastors that are moving there!

  • Gisela on May 26th, 2016 - 2:18pm


    @Black Widow,
    Sorry, I’m still adjusted to your new name! Yep, it’s a re-telling of Little Mermaid. I heard it’s very loose on the re-telling, but, if you read the summary, she pretends to be mute so not to reveal her identity. Then it says Evangeline saves Wesley from drowning! 😮
    And yes, I live in Ohio. It’s so hot out, my mom set out the waterslide! No, seriously.
    When the Beautiful Pretender came in the mail, my mom tried to snatch it away from me! LOL She really wanted to read…

  • Gisela on May 26th, 2016 - 2:23pm


    …it. In fact, she’s reading it now!
    Our library has the Beautiful Pretender…On E-book. I NEVER read books online! There’s like 20 holds anyway. I hope our library gets Silent Songbird or I’ll have to save up money.
    I loved the part in the Golden Braid where Rapunzel’s talking to Sir Gerek and she says the weasel hair thing. He wa growing a beard she said it looks like weasel fur! LOL! 😆 😆
    Have fun!

  • Black widow on May 27th, 2016 - 8:25am


    #raining not happy…

  • Gisela on May 27th, 2016 - 10:35am


    It’s RAINING?? I would love the rain in this HOT weather…

  • Black widow on May 27th, 2016 - 12:43pm


    Ya its still raining…

  • Gisela on May 27th, 2016 - 2:48pm


    How did you feel when Rapunzel was actually Elsebeth? Wasn’t it awesome?? I loved the scene where Lady Rose and Elsebeth hug each other when she finds out she is Elsebeth!! I got “The Golden Braid” for Christmas and have read like 10 times already! No joke! It was SOO good! Here are the Melanie Dickerson books I’ve read (in order of publication date):
    Merchant’s Daughter
    Fairest Beauty
    Captive Maiden
    Princess Spy
    Huntress of Thornbeck Forest
    Golden Braid
    Spy’s Devotion
    Beautiful Pretender
    😉 🙂
