From 1994-1997, Scholastic published the Portrait Collection series. Each of the 8th grade members wrote their autobiography as part of a school project (even Dawn, who, in her portrait collection, lamented that she had the same project in California). Logan and Shannon's collections were either unpublished or unwritten.


In the collection, each member recounts a few significant events in their lives. These collections offer a glimpse into the childhood of each member. The first chapter is usually setting up the biography assignment and describing their friends and family. Chapter 15, is the character reflecting back on what they wrote and possibly talking to other characters about their memories.
