** Adrian's mother goes through a phase of this in the first two books after reading ''The Female Eunuch''. Although it's toned down in later entries, she does include an entirely irrelevant chapter about gender politics when she writes a cookbook in Adrian's name.

* SeriesFauxnale: ''The Wilderness Years'' wraps up many long running plot threads from the first half of the series. Notably [[spoiler: both Bert Baxter and Adrian's grandmother are killed off]], Adrian goes through severe CharacterDevelopment and ''finally'' gets over Pandora and finds love with someone else [[spoiler: first Bianca, then Jo Jo]]. There is even a suggestion that he just ''might'' have some talent at writing after all when [[spoiler: Angela Hacker, after rubbishing his prose admits that that at least one of ideas is brilliant.]] The gap between ''The Wilderness Years'' and the following book is also the longest in the series.
