Not a ton of difference between this and the original version. There is a mention that Watson's parents are very religious and he doesn't want to upset them, so moving in together before being married isn't an option. "Morbidda Destiny" shows up a bit later, and Dawn is the one who stops Karen from yelling about magics clashing, and Karen briefly treats her neighbor like a human being.
Established or continued in this book:
The Girls (and Logan):
Claudia candy: She searches for Ring Dings but can't find them
Nannie and her Pink Clinker
Watson's parents seem uncomfortable with talk of magic as well as living together before marriage (although Elizabeth and Watson could have stayed in separate rooms!)
The Brewer/Watson family
The Club (and clients):
Walkers are not recommended by the American Pediatric Association--too big a risk of falls.
Galligan dedicates this to "Max, William, Durinn, Nate, and Lily. And for Patrick, who is much older than these cool babies, but still manages to have a good time."
