Ann M. Martin started her series with 4 pretty much normal 12th graders forming a club. It was a good plot, and I think she handled it well. However, 100-some books later, the baby-sitters seem to have turned into a bunch of mature, well-rounded, highly sophisticated fairy tale characters. Get real here! Even Mallory and Jessi (age 11, for pete's sake!) act like adults. The books seem to have veered far away from their central theme--baby-sitting, remember?--and become a series where everything is perfect: there is a baby-sitter of every ethnic origin, a baby-sitter with every problem imaginable (Stacy has diabetes, Abby's father died, Jessi deals with an anorexic friend, a lot of them have divorced parents)...not that any of this is bad. Ethnic diversity is great--but there is only one African-American member, only one Jewish member, only one Asian member. It's like Ann said, 'Whoops, I have to have diversity! Quick, add one of each!' It doesn't ring true at all. Plus, I don't like how all of the baby-sitters seem to be upper or upper-middle class. Are there no poor people in Stonybrook, CT? If they are so excepting, why don't the sitters baby-sit some kids who don't live in a subdivision? I'm sick and tired of a bunch of middle schoolers acting like adults, running off on trips to Europe and Hawaii and California, having complicated 'boy trouble.' Why didn't they just stay put in Connecticut, baby-sitting and doing their homework? I liked the series much better before Ann got her big ideas. So read the first 4 books if you want realistic settings, and read the rest of them only if you're prepared to handle fairy-tale circumstances.
