Who in Deep Valley Are You?

Tacy with her head on Betsy's shoulder

Deep Valley is the home of the Betsy-Tacy characters, and I found this quiz on book club girl‘s site. Here is my quiz result:

Which Betsy-Tacy character are you?

Your Result: Tacy Kelly

Tacy, though bashful with people she doesn’t know well, can be just as merry as Betsy and the others in the Crowd. Remember the Irish Colleen and the brogue accent? Tacy is a true friend who both sympathizes with and understands Betsy whether she is sad, happy, obsessed with a certain boy, etc. Although Tacy doesn’t lose her heart easily, when she does it’s for keeps (Harry Kerr!)

You can take the quiz here. If you wind up being a Betsy, let me know because that means you are yin to my yang!

Actually, both Betsy and Tacy are pretty yang, if you ask me. They are both positive and bright, but then, they are characters in novels for children. Maybe Betsy does acquire some more yin as she matures. What do you think? Now there’s a question: it requires knowledge of both kid-lit and Chinese philosophy!

Enjoy the quiz, fellow Maudies!

    Fun! I got Betsy! Here’s what the quiz says about her:
    “As a child, Betsy is lively and imaginative, a story-teller and a ring-leader. As she grows up, Betsy is popular with both boys and girls because of her fun spirit and love of a good time. She loves traditions, having fun, parties, and boys, but she sometimes undervalues herself and her talents. In the end she learns to love her true self and comes to realize and value her love of writing, and makes her dream a reality. Although she has had many beaus, she ends up with the one best suited to her (Joe Willard!), who understands her love of writing and encourages her to be her real self.”

    Of course, it would be easy to manipulate the quiz to get the result you want — it was pretty obvious which answers were linked which character. But I tried to be honest!

    It also looks like the next two runners-up in my results were Carney Sibley and Emily Webster… I don’t know if I ever read “Carney’s House Party.” I’ll have to check that one out from the library.

      You’re right, the results would be easy to manipulate, but no Betsy-Tacy lover would ever do that! Carney’s House Party is a good read; I hope you like it. And I’ll be over for a picnic later, okay Betsy?
