Why I Quit the Babysitters Club

(Book 17 in the Bone Chillers series)
A novel by

Once again bestselling author Betsy Haynes (The Fabulous Five series) has unleashed her prolific pen, this time to delightfully horrifying good use. Bone Chillers is an entertaining collection of grotesqueries that are especially twisted for the minds of young readers. Grounded in the familiar terrain of school, shopping malls, or family affairs, each fantasia exposes a macabre world of demons and monsters lurking just below the mundane surface of everyday life.

In Why I Quit the Baby-Sitter's Club, Rosie, a reluctant young sitter, agrees to sit for some creepy new neighbors. But unbelievably high wages and an endless supply of goodies aren't pay enough for what she finds when she starts snooping behind closed doors.

Overflowing with buckets of gore and more than a little vomitus, Bone Chillers aren't for the squeamish. But there's a moral hidden in this madness and, in the end, the good guys usually come out on top--even if they are covered in some kind of slime. --George Laney
