Martin I had a great time re visiting the characters It was fun to explore their lives in the prequel “The Summer Before and to figure out what led the girls to form The Baby sitters Club something that would eventually change their lives It was like a reunion with friends friends who haven’t changed a bit Q Kristy Claudia Mary Anne and Stacey are very different characters which is in part why the series was and is still so popular Every reader can relate to at least one of the characters So we have to ask you which character are you most like? Martin I am most like Mary Anne who is the shy and quiet one Like me Mary Anne enjoys solitary pursuits such as reading and needlework My favorite character however is Kristy I think she's my alter ego Q Were you allowed to baby sit when you were twelve? If so were they any funny or awful stories you'd like to share? Martin Yes I did a lot of baby sitting when I was twelve One of the worst and also funniest things that ever happened was when I was baby sitting for our neighbors and the kids wanted to wash their parents' car They started the job with much enthusiasm usi.

Ng Brillo pads Q More than BSC books were published in the eighties and nineties Are there any that you are particularly fond of and why? Martin My favorite Baby sitters Club book is Kristy's Great Idea which is the first book and sets the series in motion I also like the serious books such as Claudia and the Sad Good bye which deals with the death of Claudia’s grandmother This book was written shortly after my own grandmother died My other favorite BSC books include “Kristy and the Secret of Susan” in which the members of the BSC baby sit for a child with autism and Jessi's Secret Language in which the girls learn American Sign Language in order to communicate with a sitting charge with profound hearing impairment Q Why do you think that the series is so well loved and has endured over so many years? Martin I think the characters in the BSC books are easily relatable The books deal with timeless topics including friendship family and school  Also the books tackle serious issues including racism bullying kids with disabilities physical and mental and death of a loved one These issues were relevant to kids in the s and s and are still relevant to kids today In addition to being relatable these are characters readers can aspire to The kids run a business in this case a baby sitting business They are entrepreneurial independent creative and confident And at the heart of the series is the friendship the glue that binds these characters Sure they have fights but they're loyal and they support one another I think a lot of us even adults can relate to that Q The Summer Before takes place during The Summer Before the girls enter the seventh grade where suddenly there's a ton of pressure to fit in The months leading up to it can be filled with anxiety excitement and anticipation Do you remember how you spent The Summer Before seventh grade? Martin I was nervous that summer because in the fall I would be going to a new school – the junior high this was in the time before middle schools Even the words junior high seemed terribly grown up My friends and I would be attending school with eighth graders who were one step away from high school I spent that summer reading going to the community pool taking a family trip to Cape May New Jersey doing some baby sitting and also recovering from surgery But the knowledge that I would soon be in junior high school colored every day and every activity and did lend the summer an air of both anxiety and anticipation Q Despite.

    The Summer Before Kindle Å The Summer PDF \ summer epub, before free, The Summer ebok, The Summer Before EpubOMG I feel like a middle schooler again Not that that was a great time but I loved reading the Baby Sitter's Club books I read them voraciously And I'm not embarrassed to admit I kinda wanna read them all again after reading this oneThe Summer Before is a prequel book to all of the other Baby Sitter's Club books The girls are in the summer before 7th grade and are just beginning to babysit At the very end of the book Kristy gets the idea for the club Which is where the first book Kristy's Great Idea written back in 1986 started outThere's something refreshing about the way Ann M Martin writes these books They're easy to read obviously and fun She has great insight into the 11 to 13 year old mind set Of course there were moments when I'd roll my eyes but for the most part these books and these girls were just like me at that age

    The Summer Before Kindle Å The Summer PDF \ summer epub, before free, The Summer ebok, The Summer Before EpubI really loved this book it reminded me of how much I liked the series when I was a little girl The Babysitter's Club launched when I was in fifth grade 1986 and I bought Kristy's Great Idea off the shelf at my local Waldenbooks and eagerly awaited every new release This captures the charm of the early books which were written by Martin rather than ghostwriters and she touches on some themes of the series in a slightly serious way It's great to revisit such familiar characters without all the boring repetition of the later books Definitely recommended for any
