this super special has a place in my heart, probably because there's really not much plot to it. a snowstorm is predicted for stonybrook, but the weathercasters have been predicting snow for weeks & not a flake has descended on our fair town, where parents permit 13-year-olds to raise their children. so no one believes the storm predictions. this is preposterous enough. stonybrook is supposedly in connecticut. i live in boston, just a little bit north. when huge snowstorms are predicted here ...more

I got this book for myself as a stocking stuffer, as we've been having a white Christmas, and I have fond memories of reading this book (it was my favorite Super Special when I was young). It's so fun to see what everybody is doing at the time of the blizzard... Kristy has a date with Bart, Claudia is at the Perkinses', Mary Anne and Mallory are at the Pikes' baby-sitting, Stacey is off to the mall with her mom to get a perm, Dawn and her mom are off to the airport to pick up Jeff, and Jessi is ...more

True Confession: I still read this book once every couple of years, usually while we are getting slammed with a huge snowstorm. I love it. Thankfully, after almost five years of marriage, my husband is pretty used to finding random kids books lying around the house and only makes fun of me a tiny bit. They're like snacking on rice krispie treats or putting extra marshmallows in your hot cocoa; a completely comforting guilty pleasure.

I didn't love this book as a kid but I loved rereading it as an adult. It seemed particularly appropriate to read it last night as there was horrible wind and rain and hail, to the extent that I could feel it through my windows! So I was snuggled up in bed with a zillion layers and this book. We didn't have any snow (but I live right on the coast, literally, I can walk to the beach in 20 minutes) but I did feel a sort of connection to the BSC girls while reading this book. For once, the girls di ...more

This was always my absolute favorite BSC book growing up. I'm not sure why, since there is really no plot besides a snowstorm, but I reread it every single Christmas (and probably several times throughout the year, too). I was fascinated by the idea of a blizzard like this, maybe because I've always lived in Texas and never experienced snow at all until I was an adult and went to Colorado on vacation. Whatever the case may be, this book has always held a special place in my heart. It took me age ...more

This one was on the verge of being boring but then it pulled out the fun and outrageous in the end. It starts out with Kristy being super annoying, writing the Stoneybrook newspaper about the blizzard they had and offering to sell them the Baby-Sitters Club's story as an article. She's all "your story was good but mine is better" and "by the way, do you need a baby-sitter?" And she basically spoils the whole story for us, by listing what happened to everyone during the blizzard. THEN we

This was the first Super Special I read when I was younger, so it has a special place in my heart. I think that as a child I was fascinated by that amount of snow (living in Queensland, Australia probably didn't help, considering this usually means Christmas is stinking hot), plus reading now as an adult unfortunately coincided with the recent spate of wild weather we are having here - wild, howling winds and heaps of rain! So it felt a little creepy reading it.

It's kinda funny reading it becaus

An enormous and very sudden snowstorm traps all of the baby-sitters. Stacey is stuck in a car with her mother for awhile (but they are rescued by strangers). Mary Anne and Mallory are trapped in the Pike house with a dwindling food supply when the parents, on an all-day trip to New York City, are prevented from returning home overnight. (Logan skis over with provisions.) Claudia stays with the Perkins girls in a similar situation. Dawn and her mother end up staying overnight at the airport when ...more

The first of the super specials I did not read as a child, and so it holds no nostalgia and only WTF for me.

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

When I saw this book at my local Goodwill, nostalgia made me pick it up. The fun adventures the girls got into reminded me why these books were so popular. Also, reading this as an adult made me realize the wonderful diversity Martin includes in her characters- different races, social classes, family diversity, etc. Martin tackles adoption, divorce, combined families, social issues, and daily teen anxieties all in one book without being overly preachy.

In which a huge snowstorm hits the 'Brook. Stace gets trapped in the car. STFUDawn gets stuck at the airport. MA and Mel-ry are stuck with the Spike beasts, and Caludia is with the Perfect Perkinses. Oh and Jessi is stuck at dance school and Bart is trapped at K.Ron's. Poor Bart. Another fave.

I literally read this book 10 times when I was younger. When I saw the opportunity to read it again for free on my kindle I took it. Obviously, the story didn't have quite the same appeal now reading it as an adult. But I could still see why I liked it so much when I was younger.

I'm not even going to try to put a date to when I read this. I had to be ten or so at the oldest. I read scores of the BSC books, but this is the only one I really remember and could search for. I highly recommend the series for any reader starting in on chapter books.

I don't really remember this one... possibly because I've lived through a few snowstorms myself? One has to ask - what WAS Stacey doing at the mall during a blizzard of such proportions? If she was just shopping for designer clothes, she deserves whatever she got.

I have returned to my middle school years. I read through this quickly of course. The BSC are all stranded during a blizzard. It tells of their adventures.

Absolutely the best Baby-Sitters Club book around. Love, tears, diabetes, extreme weather, the Winter Wonderland Dance, and rampant marijuana use.

I loved the series as a kid. I never read them in order because the library didn't have all of them. I think my favs were the Super Specials.

Everyone's snowed in... that's all I remember. Not one of the best, and usually I so enjoyed the Super Specials!

Growing up in Australia, the idea of a major snow storm was very exciting.

This is as great as I remembered.
