I grew up reading these books. I was that geeky, speed-reading tween who carried a book everywhere just in case I had time to get in a few pages. And more often than not, the book I was reading was from The Babysitters Club. That series is one of the reasons I’m a good writer.
The books were such a large part of my childhood that I saved them for my own kids. That’s right, as a teenager I stored them in boxes in my attic, knowing I’d want to share them with my daughters decades down the road. But now my kids won’t have to read the dusty, old-school versions, because Scholastic is releasing updated copies! (That saves me from having to explain terms like “perm” and “cassette player.”)
Like I said, epic.
