What Would Mary Ann Do?: A Good Girl's Guide to Life
So, what would Mary Ann do?

As the sweet Mary Ann Summers from Kansas in the hit series Gilligan’s Island, Dawn Wells created a beloved character that still connects with people 50 years later. As the “good girl” among the group of castaways on a tiny island, she was often positioned against the glamorous and exotic Ginger Grant prompting many to ask: Are you a Ginger or a Mary Ann?

This book not only helps readers answer that question for themselves but also sends the inspirational and heartwarming message that yes, good girls do finish first.
