Overview

Bab, only twenty months younger than her sister, the official debutante, rebels against her treatment by her family. Set during the pre-World War I era, when women's roles were rapidly changing, Bab determines to assert her independence through this series of misadventures and mysteries.

"I am writing all of this as truthfully as I can. I am not defending myself. What I did I was driven to, as any one can see. It takes a real shock to make the average Familey wake up to the fact that the youngest daughter is not the Familey baby at seventeen. All I was doing was furnishing the shock. If things turned out badly, as they did, it was because I rather overdid the thing. That is all. My motives were perfectly ireproachible." - Bab

And this Bab feels through all of her hilarious and at times dangerous adventures to prove she is not just a Sub-Deb. These adventures are captured by Bab herself, and as she declares, with her most excellent spelling!

One of my favorite books. "Bab" is hilarious! She gets into all kinds of mischief as a result of her family trying to keep her a child or "sub-deb" while she is almost a debutante. Set in pre World War I days, it contains aspects of the growing independence of women at that time as well as a feel for the national patriotism that was evident in days leading up to the war. The book deliberately contains misspelled words as Bab insists that she is great at spelling. The ARose Books publication is NOT a scanned copy, but a newly designed and edited book with newly created, custom illustrations not in the original. The Nook version is based on the paperback and carefully edited as well.
