PDF æ BOOK Baby Sitters on Board The Baby Sitters Club Super Special #1 FREE Ô Kristy Mary Anne Stacey Claudia and Dawn are the luckiest baby sitters in the world This summer they're going on the greatest trip ever a plane ride to Florida a boat trip around the Bahamas and then three days of fun in DisneyRer Kristy Mary Anne and Stacey make some unusual new friends Dawn has her first real romance And they still have time for what they like best of all baby sittin I wanted to read this SO BADLY when it came out but my library never got a copy and I couldn't justify paying extra for it out of my allowance when I could have bought two other BSC novels for the same priceSo this was the first time I've read this even though I'd read other Super Specials when I was youngI was a little creeped out by Claudia's secret admirer and by the fact that 10 year old boys were allowed to just run around without supervision on an unfamiliar Caribbean island Seriously? I wouldn't even let my 12 year old do that now and I CERTAINLY wouldn't leave him in charge of his little brothers while he was unsupervised UghAlso I can totally see where the whole Mary Anne is actually gay fanfic comes from now It starts in this story when she notices how well some anonymous girl her own age fills out her bikini Ummmm? Look I'm a grown woman and I've read all kinds of erotica fanfic and legit but this made me seriously uncomfortable Not because I don't think that kids at 13 notice things like that but because I know that the targeted age group for these books is the pre teen set Maybe I'm reading too much into it but it was seriously off puttingFinally WTF how does Mr Pike's award cover a family OF TEN PLUS full time nannies who are ONLY being paid by being taken on the trip so it's pretty much slave labour AND THEN Watson is all Oh hey Kristy that sounds awesome lets take our ginormous family AND THE REST OF YOUR FRIENDS No bigWhere the hell were friends like that when I was growing up? Hell where are they RIGHT MEOW? Anyone want to take me and my family of 6 7 if we bring my dad can we bring my dad please? on a Caribbean cruise all inclusive with a 3 day stop at DisneyWorld? If you were REALLY my friend you would do this for me

Boat trip around the Bahamas and then three days of fun in Disney WorldOf course they have a million adventures Claudia gets notes from a mysterious Secret Admi This book was way boring than I remember it being except for some intense lesbian subtext The BSC goes on a cruise with the Pikes and the Brewer Thomases Dawn gets dragged around by an overly pushy dude and nobody finds anything wrong with it Claudia has a stalker and it's So Romantic ugh Kristy spends the whole cruise hanging around an old man which makes me wonder where her parents were throughout this trip But the subtext man I admit that I was a naive kid I didn't know where babies came from until a slumber party in fifth grade where a much sophisticated friend asked me if I knew gave me a withering look when she heard my response and handed me a medical textbook of some sort Therefore upon my first reading of Baby sitters on Board I completely missed Mary Anne's cruise ship crush on one Alexandra Carmody From her first chapter Yeah I replied vaguely I was looking at a girl who was standing at the appointment desk apparently waiting for someone to help her She had masses of dark wavy hair that cascaded over her shoulders and partway down her back and she was wearing one of the skimpiest bikinis I'd ever seen Even though she looked just a little older than me she had a figure that filled out the top of her bikini nicely Wow I said softly I was highly impressedThe girl turned around then and I blushed I hoped she hadn't overheard me That would have been too too embarrassingSERIOUSLY? SERIOUSLY???Mary Anne has some intense drama with this girl Mary Anne immediately becomes friends with her but ignores Alexandra when she finds out she's been lying about some things Alexandra spends an entire day following Mary Anne around Disney World trying to make amends instead of riding the rides like a normal twelve year old Mary Anne ignores her and her entire day revolves around making a big point out of this The subplot culminates with the two reconciling but Mary Anne feels that she doesn't want to keep in touch with Alexandra She decides this even though it turns out that Stoneybrook is only a few towns over from Alexandra's I like to imagine that once they finally get off the Lost island and stop repeating eighth grade in a torturous loop Alexandra and Mary Anne re meet at a football game eventually go to prom together much to Kristy's chagrin of course and cause much lesbi gossip throughout the Stoneybrook communityI know there are loud rumblings that Ann M Martin is a lesbian and she's said numerous times that she patterned Mary Anne mostly after herself but MY GOD This was like O It's easy to find lesbian subtext when one wants to particularly in an all girl preteen novel series that's written by a lesbian but this is ridiculously obvious Somehow it evaded the Scholastic publishers way back in 1988 Good going there Ann

Baby Sitters on Board The Baby Sitters Club Super Special #1Kristy Mary Anne Stacey Claudia and Dawn are the luckiest baby sitters in the world This summer they're going on the greatest trip ever a plane ride to Florida a this is the first of the super specials i remember being so psyched about this book's release when i was a kid it was extra thick had chapters from the points of view of every club member plus byron mallory karen the premise mr pike won a contest at work the prize was an all expenses paid cruise for his entire family plus three days at disney world i bet whoever came up with the bright idea for the contest was kicking himself when mr pike father of eight won with all those kids the pikes of course brought mary anne stacey along as mother's helpers when kristy's stepfather watson heard about the trip he decided to book his family as well himself elizabeth kristy sam charlie david michael karen andrew he bought tickets for dawn claudia too so no member of the babysitters club would be excluded i totally just went with this when i was a kid but nowwhat the fuck? watson just hears that this other family won a prize that had to be pretty costly decides to join in? he gets tickets for kristy's friends too but none of the other kids have friends along? i find it very dubious that karen wouldn't have petitioned for hannie nancy to be invited you can't break up the three musketeers i can't even imagine how expensive it was for mr mrs pike to pay for mary anne stacey to come along on the trip this defies all of my understanding of finances now that i am a grown up but let's suspend disbelief just accept it for noweach character has a little storylinekristy is bunking with claudia dawn kristy is messy her messiness annoys dawn they fight a lot during the cruise portion of things kristy is also anxiety ridden about trying to think of a good gift to give to watson elizabeth mr mrs pike john dee dee to thank them for the trip she meets a sad old man on the cruise ship be friends him the old dude is bummin' hard because he's a widower a walter mathhau style curmudgeon but kristy helps him have fun on his vacation says she's going to set him up with her grandmotherdawn is annoyed by kristy's messiness because she is apparently a compulsive neat freak you'd think she's learn to just roll with the punches after thirteen years with sharon dude where's my car? schafer but whatever while she's not fighting with kristy she's all in love with some random dude she meets on the cruise who is apparently taken with her as well she buys herself a glass unicorn charm then loses it she cries her new boyfriend buys her a replacement yawnclaudia shares a bunk with the odd couple finds their fighting annoying she finally puts her foot down gets them to make up she also overpacked to such an extent that the extra bunk in their cabin served as her overflow closet throughout the trip she keeps getting little notes gifts from a secret admirer at times this is really creepy to me like when she's wandering around nassau alone everywhere she goes her secret admirer is one step ahead of her paying for her ice cream sundae buying her expensive mother of pearl earrings she forgets about her secret admirer when she meets a nice guy they date at disney world at the end of the book it is revealed that the nice guy she met was her secret admirer all along was scared to confess he's the son of a popular singing duo stacey is watching the pike kids meets a little boy who is confined to a wheelchair due to a heart defect she bonds with him because of her diabetes understanding how tough it is to be sick his parents admit to stacey that the little boy is going to be having heart surgery soon there's a chance he won't make it so this trip is a way for them to make some memories this storyline bored the pants off me when i was a kid it still bores me in the epilogue we learn that the kid pulled through surgey just fine wants a bicycle for his birthdaymary anne is also watching the pikes becomes obsessed with a sophisticated looking teenage girl on the trip lila fowler? the sophisticated girl alexandra says she is traveling alone because she is an orphan has tons of money because her aunt is a countess remember when lila fowler was a countess? mary anne feels a connection because alexandra really fills out her bikini topi mean because mary anne's mother is dead so she understands but then mary anne finds out that the girl lied that she is actually the daughter of a popular singing duo sister to claudia's paramour she lied because she wanted attention mary anne forgives her but doubts they will remain friendsbyron his triplet brothers along with nicky david micahel become obsessed with pirates they find a diagram of a dutch photocopier think it's a pirate map they spend the entire trip searching for treasure they see claudia's weird boyfriend hiding in random dignhys coils of rope a few times think he's a stowaway may be a pirate of some sort they find dawn's missing bracelet at disney world return it to her who gives an eff? it would have been so much awesome if byron's chapters just recounted all the food they ate with recipeskaren is a fucking brat who a has herself a manicure when she's supposed to be going back to her cabin to get her ear plugs says charge it to my cabin when it's time to pay b lies at a disney world breakfast says it's her birthday in order to get attention c convinces herself that a hitchhiking ghost from the haunted mansion is following her around disney world i hate karen i know most adult babysitters club fans hate karen how did she ever get a spin off series? i wish she had fallen into the ocean been devoured by sharks at birthtoward the end of the book the babysitters have the bright idea to give their adult benefactors an annotated photo album of the trip recounting all of their adventures apparently this super special is that photo album as it is sprinkled with amateur drawings that are supposed to represent photographs i was so into this when i was a kid even though i didn't really have any interest in cruises or disney world it seems so gimmicky now but most of the super specials were pretty uestionable one weird thing dawn is incredibly excited to go on a cruise but later she becomes an eco warrior does she not know how awful cruise ships are for the environment? they spew so much trash pollution into the ocean dawn is so excited when the cruise ship leaves everyone is throwing streamers confetti around into the ocean come on dawn i guess at this point she's just a healthy eater not the mink liberating eco fighter she becomes later
