    1. i was really distracted when i started reading this because about three-quarters of the first chapter is written in present tense, & the rest is mostly in past tense (with occasional forays into present). what the eff, ann m. martin/scholastic editors? it's that kind of crap that gives kids such a tenuous grasp on the writerly craft. anywayllory has been invited to join the babysitters club, in order to replace stacey. she is psyched because all the babysitters are thirteen & in eighth g [...]


    2. Mostly I remember Mallory drawing a picture of an esophagus.The BSC is considering Mallory for the club, but they want her to jump through a lot of hoops, including written and oral testing and probationary jobs where other baby-sitters tag along silently judging her. Mallory becomes frustrated: the questions and the grading are unfairly difficult, and they know she’s a good sitter. Mallory’s new friend Jessi (who moved into Stacey’s old house) also feels like an outcast due to some anvili [...]


    3. I feel compelled to review this book from the Babysitters Club franchise, only because it was the one 'BSC' book that I read atleast ten times. The more I read it, the more I realized, that at the age of 10, I was a lot like Mallory. Shy, kind of wanting to fit in with the "cool kids", attemptign to dress fashionable and failing miserably, all the while repeatedly telling my parents "You just don't get it". I'm not going to pseudo-intellectually review this book, because I haven't read it in yea [...]


    4. Mallory joins the cult (or is it club?) in this book, which is also the first book to feature Jessi, the token black baby sitter. Finding it difficult to live up to the older baby sitters lofty standards Mallory and Jessi attempt to strike out on their own. I read this book when I was ten or eleven, and I remember loving it.Things I remember from reading this as a kid:The older baby sitters are so awful to Mallory. As a kid around the same age as Mallory, I remember relating to her excitement at [...]



    5. I really disliked this book. I love Mallory, she's probably the most like me after Mary Anne. Anyone who says "I love to read, and I don't believe that you have to finish one book before you start another." is A-Okay with me! :) But her first real book was full of mean baby-sitters, ridiculous tests and racism.Okay, let's start from the beginning. The BSC has invited Mallory to join them to help replace Stacey, but they want to give her a test first. Mallory is super excited.lly something to mak [...]


    6. I remember reading this one as a kid and being very indignant on Mallory's part when she wanted to join the Baby-Sitters Club and they insisted on giving her ridiculous tests and monitoring her sitting jobs. I think it's good that they acknowledged THIS KID IS ELEVEN and therefore leaving her alone with someone's kids might not be a good idea, but considering how much practice she has--as the eldest child of EIGHT kids--she probably knows more than the core babysitters about taking care of kids. [...]


    7. except for the quasi-semi-gayness, it was pretty boring."'Well,' said Kristy. 'I guess we better get started. The test is going to be in two parts-- oral and drawing.''Oral and drawing?' I repeated.'Yes,' said Claudia haughtily. 'Oral means spoken.'I bet you anything in the world Claudia herself hadn't known the meaning of that word before today.""'The girls in the club are older than we are, so maybe we won't end up close friends, but we can get along. We can work together. Besides, you and I h [...]


    8. Poor Mallory. She's been shit on since she first started appearing in this series, seriously. She's like the red headed step-child of the BSCverse and I feel bad for her. Most of the time. Sometimes not at all, but in this case yes. Kristy Thomas is a weird mini-dictator and what kind of club asks you to draw a picture of the human digestive system as part of a test to join?Well, besides maybe some weird anatomy club. At that point it would be acceptable.The thing I enjoy most about this one is [...]


    9. Well that was odd. The whole time, I was under the impression that Ann Martin had got a request from her publisher to write in a Black character into the series but had no idea how to do this. The result is a very awkward book with out of character situations (the BSC testing Mallory) and a very forced conclusion. I enjoyed the book, but this doesn't address racism in any kind of satisfactory way.


    10. Not a member of the Mallory fan club, she's even less believable than Kristy or Mary Ann. Still, it was hard to discern the motivation behind the obstacles she is forced to hurdle at the hands of the members of the baby-sitter's club as they decide whether or not to make her a member of their team.


    11. Reading this firmly cemented to me that I am definitely a Mallory and I'm just gonna own it from now on. Amazingly this book deals with a lot for what it is and who the target audience is and when it was first published. Also a fascinating look at the BSC girls from outside the established core friend group.


    12. I used to love the Babysitter's Club! My friends and I used to swap them between us when I was in primary school. They were so popular at the time, there was a waiting list at the library if you wanted to read them in chronological order! I used to be allowed to buy one book a week on a Friday when I was younger; this was usually an Enid Blyton, Roald Dahl, Point Horror or one of these! I would love to revisit them at some stage, just for nostalgia's sake!


    13. With all the focus on Jessi's skin colour, this book definitely did not age well. I think the BSC just didn't want anyone to like Mal from the start, what with her "Mallory" jumper and how awkward she is. (Though I can't really hate on her - as much as we wish we were Staceys or Claudias, deep down we're all Mallory.)







    14. with the departure of stacey, the bsc needs a new member to take some of their surplus of jobs. they ask mallory pike to join but force her to take a ridiculous test (they ask her to draw the human digestive system from memory, for instance) and fail her for not being perfect. meanwhile there is a new girl in mallory's class, jessi ramsey, who is black (which is a big deal because there's no one else in mallory's class who's black because connecticut is the worst). like mallory, jessi is a horse [...]


    15. Posted originally on my blog: The Writer's InkwellIt’s been a while since I last read a BSC book. But I have to say, this one in particular left me a bit perplexed about some of the details. For example, Mallory states that she has brown hair and yet, on every book cover and in every movie/tv episode, she has red hair. Another thing that really got to me was exactly how unfair the girls were to Mallory about joining the club.I remembered that they had given her an unfair test, that they didn [...]


    16. Mallory's eleven, and she'd love to join the Baby-Sitters Club, but everyone thinks she's just too young to assume responsibility for someone else's kids. Well, maybe if she was an ordinary kid, but she's a Pike--the eldest of eight children! She's got practice! Taking this into consideration--and keeping in mind they desperately need someone to replace Stacey, who's moved away--the BSC agrees to evaluate Mallory, but they hold her to ridiculous standards, so she finds herself failing various te [...]


    17. The Babysitter's Club was always one of my favourite series, and this is one of the books I remember especially liking. Although by now it seems unrealistic for 11 and 13 year old girls to be as "mature" as they were shown to be in the series, I remember really idolizing the club when I was a kid and it made me want to be a babysitter too. This book especially stood out because it was interesting to see the usual main characters from a new perspective -- from Mallory's perspective, the older gir [...]


    18. It's always nice when you reread a book from your childhood and enjoy it a lot more than you expected. I vaguely remembered Mal and Jessi setting up a rival club prior to joining the BSC but I couldn't recall any of the details. Thus, this was a refreshing read. It was nice to read about Mal and Jessi before they joined the club and about their growing friendship and the reality of being lonely at that age. It was also interesting to read about how Jessi's family were treated when they moved to [...]


    19. I really enjoyed this book, it remains one of my favorites. The BSC need to expand their ranks due to their increasing popularity, and Mallory, who is in the sixth grade, is considered for membership because she has babysat for her own younger siblings before and the BSC knows her already. However, the BSC can be a bit overcritical of Mallory (there was one example of glaring hypocrisy, when Claudia, who Mallory knows loves candy, gives her a lecture on healthy eating for the children) but in th [...]


    20. Fantastic books for young girls getting into reading!! Great stories about friendship and life lessons. The characters deal with all sorts of situations and often find responsible solutions to problems.I loved this series growing up and wanted to start my own babysitting business with friends. Great lessons in entrepreneurship for tweens.The books may be dated with out references to modern technology but the story stands and lessons are still relevant.Awesome books that girls will love! And the [...]


    21. In which Mallory drinks the Kool-Aid and joins the Cult. My god. I love this book, but damn, these girls were bitches to poor Mal. That impossible test. Soy sauce. The "divestive" system. Going on that job with Caludia where she makes poor Mal so nervous she can't do anything right. Jessi moves into Stacey's old house. Jessi is slightly less irritating here. Mal is a typical 11 year old for a little bit. I love the early books, before they become so horribly, unimaginatively formulaic.


    22. Good for Mallory sticking up for herself, because the Babysitters Club members were real jerks in this book. Also, how weird is it to read a BSC book from the perspective of an outsider? That was an interesting choice on the author's part. The addition of Jessi to the series is by far the best part of this book; her friendship with Mallory is adorable, but I especially like that the girls address the racism in their super-white Connecticut neighborhood.


    23. I kind of remember reading this book back on elemetary school. The test the BSC girls make Mallory take I thought it was quite easy at the time except for the medical parte, that seemed out of place. It was refreshing to see how Mallory first idolized the girls but then got so disappointed about the way they were handling her incorporation (pun intended :p) that she kind of hated them XD That's a new in Stoneybrook where everyone loves the BSC XD


    24. I did enjoy reading this book because I had read some of the books after and had always wondered how Mallory and Jessi had gotten to be in the Babysitters Club. I never remember reading though about them being mean to any of the other characters and the way they treated Mallory was a little unfair but I liked how it ended.The shifts from present tense to past tense kind of confused me a bit which is why I have it a lower rating than my usual ones but that was the only problem I had.
