      Claudia begins sitting for the new kids in town, Joey and Nate Nicholls. They’re sweet kids, but their father is creepy. He’s all charm with Claudia, but he yells at the boys and calls them names. The boys seem overly nervous, freaking out about spills and expecting Claudia to pitch a fit about minor infractions, like getting a tiny tear in her book. Claudia can’t convince them to relax and, after she sees the way their dad yells, she figures they know best. One day, Mr. Nicholls comes hom [...]

      This book was amazing, and I wish I had read it back in the day.

      I remember being touched by this book because the BSC has never encountered this kind of thing before. Yes, there was the share of imperfect parents, but when Claudia babysits for a pair of boys, she notices oddities in their behavior, such as being too polite and fearful. This book shows you what to look for in some signs of abuse, so it gives kids a lesson in spotting abuse without being graphic like more adult books or movies would be. Overall a really good book, the BSC series is good for te [...]

      Very Special Episode book in which domestic violence is addressed in a lame way. The best part is Mr. Nichols calling Caludia and screaming, "Give me back my wife!" This is one of the few times the Cult doesn't go head first into a problem and actually asks an adult for help. As well they should have.

    5. Kristina says:

      A pretty realistic book with a serious tone for a BSC book!

    6. Brooke says:

      I love BSC books! I haven't picked one up in awhile and I am glad I did, :D

      made me cry

      i think this book takes the prize for the most special of the very special episode babysitters club books. when the addisons moved away in abby & the best kid ever, the nicholls family moved into their place. there was some foreshadowing in the abby book about mr. nicholls being a little bit gruff & uptight & having a lot of rules. the addisons recommended the babysitters club to the nichollses, should they even need a babysitter for their sons (joey & nate, ages five & seven [...]

      It's nice to see the BSC come up against things now and then that they can't just deal with on their own. It's a good change of pace, and makes things a little more "real". Sure, it was a little bit cheesy, but the message here was actually a good one. Things aren't always perfect, sometimes bad things happen for reasons we can't always fathom. Child abuse is one of those things, and it was nice to see them need an adult to intervene for a change.

    10. Hezekiah says:

      This is extremely intense and gripping in comparison to other BSC books in the series. I had to stop several times to emotionally process it. Abuse is very well researched and described in an age-appropriate way that still presents it with nuance. I didn't feel like this book was preachy or contrived at all.

    11. Kerri says:

      🍕This book was a good one but at the end Mr. Nicholls wasn't arrested which I think would have made a more exciting ending. Another thing would be if Mr. Nicholls had chased them to Stampford but they got away! Reviews always by Daphne

      Okay, so I was planning on reading these books in order. At least, as much as I could. But when I found this in the used bookstore the other day, I couldn't help but start reading it on the bus ride home. I totally devoured it.I only read it once before (I borrowed it from a friend who had THE ENTIRE FREAKING SERIES OMG), but I remember really liking it. I still look back fondly on it. I tend to really like the SERIOUS ISSUES books in the series.So in this one, Claudia gets new charges who she t [...]

      Fantastic books for young girls getting into reading!! Great stories about friendship and life lessons. The characters deal with all sorts of situations and often find responsible solutions to problems.I loved this series growing up and wanted to start my own babysitting business with friends. Great lessons in entrepreneurship for tweens.The books may be dated with out references to modern technology but the story stands and lessons are still relevant.Awesome books that girls will love! And the [...]

      Claudia, a member of the baby sitters club, was baby sitting a brand new family, Nicholls. The kids she was baby sitting were very obedient, one trait that was rare in all the other kids. Claudia was suspicious and decided to come earlier next time. She heard a loud slap and it was the father. he was performing child abuse to his children. Claudia told her mom and the cops were called. The problem was settled when the father went to a help institution and the kids went to live with their aunt.

    15. Jenny says:

      Stupid. No one thinks to call the cops or CPS. Instead Claudia's barely functioning mother saves the day. It's good that the bsc covered this issue but it was handled horribly. Ann Martin is an idiot.

    16. Dana Salman says:

      'Shudder'. I'm not really a fan of child abuse stories, like that thing called A Child Called It. Haven't read that, but the title alone sends shivers down my spine. I am fervantly glad my parents love me

    17. Sally says:

      This one was pretty well done, I thought. For once the drama is actually something serious - new clients have an abusive father. All done very simply of course, but nonetheless done quite well for the age bracket.

    18. Maria Elmvang says:

      I'm giving this 5 stars because Ann M. Martin took a very difficult topic and handled it well. It's always risky to tackle heavy topics because you have to do it well, or it's better not to do it at all. Here she managed to give an age-appropriate solution to a dangerous situation. Well done.

    19. Amy Holcomb says:

      The Baby-sitters Club series was my favorite growing up! :)

    20. Carley Adair says:

      Ann m Martin wrote this very wellThis book was very sad but ended happy. Ann m Martin wrote this very well and sensitively was one of the more serious babysitter club books .
