    Summary from Goodreads Once upon a time, a girl named Kristy Thomas had a great idea to form The Baby Sitters Club with her best friends And now twelve year old Malia Twiggs has had a great idea too Technically, she had Kristy s idea And technically, little kids seem gross and annoying, but a paycheck is a paycheck After a little convincing, Malia and her friends Dot and Bree start a babysitting club to earn funds for an epic birthday bash But babysitting definitely isn t what they thought it would be Three friends No parents Unlimited snacks And, okay, occasionally watching other people s children What could possibly go wrong What I likedThis book brought me back to my Diary of a Wimpy Kid days I loved the humor and the plot It was very enjoyable and I can t wait to read the next book.The three main characters are really funny, they all come from different families and they re all different in their own ways which is pa...

    I requested this ARC mostly because of my own feelings of nostalgia for the original Baby sitters Club series, and it was fun to see the ways this story paralleled and parodied the stories I enjoyed from that series back in the 1990s While I m not sure I m ready to call 90s literature vintage, it was interesting to look at the books I grew up with through a contemporary lens That said, I didn t particularly like any of the characters in this book They all felt like caricatures of certain middle school stereotypes, and none of them were particularly sympathetic or interesting I found Malia s insistence on being called Alia annoying, and the rivalry between her and her sister and their parents take on that relationship completely implausible It was also problematic for me, as a Catholic mom, anyway that the only morality in the book is from a new age point of view, delivered by Dot s mother I also questioned whether the Baby sitters Club re releases are popular enough with ...

    E ARC provided by NetgalleyMalia finds a battered copy of a Baby Sitters Club book in a giveaway pile, and decides to put the idea into action with her best friends Bree and Dot because seventh grade was turning out to be all kinds of meh from E ARC She and her friends don t have money to buy anything at the mall, and her long time crush still doesn t know she exists Some of the people who go to her school are mind bogglingly rich, and throw epic birthday parties, and she s hoping that if she can put together such a party, her life will improve Malia has two supportive parents, but her older sister is much successful than Malia feels she is Bree has a complicated step family, and often feels lost in the shuffle Dot has a hippie dippie mother who doesn t let her wear deodorant and has a cupboard full of hemp flakes scary , cashew spirulina algae balls so scary , and sugar free, vegan peanut butter cookies , and is counting the days until she can move to New York and live her own entrepreneurial life while wearing all black They think Malia s idea has some merit, so set up their company, put something on the PTA list serv, and sit back to wait for the calls to come in They get one job that pays quite a bit, but they blow all of their money at the mall They have another job lined up, though, so look forward to saving for their p...

    A quirky book for younger readers who enjoy drama, fiasco, and revenge The writing and characters, to me, lacked depth, but I could see how this could be fun for others Some situations felt a bit too unbelievable to me particularly the relationship between Chelsea and Malia, three 12 year olds babysitting 33 kids, Drake performing in this rich town, and how forgotten Bria felt I didn t really feel I got to know the three girls, but...

    Malia, Bree, and Dot have always had a joint birthday party, but this year they re thinking big Their other classmates have parties with exotic animals and famous singers They want something just as memorable So when Malia finds an old copy of Ann Martin s The Babysitters Club, she establishes her own babysitting club It doesn t matter if she and her friends don t really like little kids, right I enjoyed this book, which is a cute homage to the series that was my first bookish fandom I even wrote a fan letter to Ann M Martin my first and only fan letter All three girls were quirky individuals, and glitter and cat obsessed Bree reminded me of myself at that age The sabotage by Malia s older sister did seem a little over the top, but it wasn t out of place here It also reminded me of a plot from one of the original Babysitters Club books Best of all, the girls learn an important lesson about fr...

    Best Babysitters Ever was decidedly not for me This wasn t a huge shock because a lot of middle grade does read too young for me, which, at age 31, isn t a massive surprise It says as much or about me as it does about the book I don t think middle grade should be for adults but I like some of it so I keep trying TBH I picked this book up for the multiple narrator audio and not the subject matter sometimes that pans out for me and sometimes, like now, it doesn t.I d recommend this to fans of The Babysitters Club or Malone and Nall s RSVP series, which had very similar vibes and themes Adults who loved the former might enjoy this than I did for the nostalgia factor, but I was never really into that series except for the fabulous Claudia.Mostly I struggled with disbelief and a certain amount of jadedn...
