In the first book, Mina’s mom was a teacher. In the second book, she didn’t have a job because there wasn’t much on offer in Cartville and she was exploring her options. Now…in the third book…any ideas what Mina’s mom might like to take on?
After a comment someone made somewhere in one of the past posts, I was thinking that maybe her mom could get into baking or cooking because a) she’s in Paris, France (good food! NOM NOM NOM) and b) she’s done quite a bit of cookie and cake baking in the books anyway. It’s something she likes to do.
What do you guys think? Any other suggestions or ideas? This may not wind up as a huge part of the story, but unlike many YA books, Mina’s parents are quite involved in her life (hence her problem in the first book). They do love her and she loves them, so even though a lot of Mina’s adventures in this one are going to be off on her own or with…nope, sorry, not gonna tell you yet <evil grin>…I don’t want them to just conveniently disappear so she can go off and tackle things on her own.
