this one starts low, because it starts a softball game between kristy's krushers & bart's bashers. i wonder if there's anyone who has ever read a babysitters club books that actually found the softball plots remotely compelling. it's a gray, rainy day, & kristy lets jake kuhn (whom she has been training up as a new relief pitcher, & whose parents recently divorced) walk home alone after he explains that his mom already gave him permission.

but mrs. kuhn calls later that evening to as...more

After coaching a game for her kids' baseball team, the Krushers, Kristy gets word that her relief pitcher, Jake Kuhn, never made it home. He's missing! Kristy organizes neighborhood kids to comb the area looking for the missing boy.

Secondary storylines, if you even want to call them that: Mary Anne is failing home ec, and SMS is having an awards show.


Like most BSC mysteries, this one is profoundly unsatisfying. Kristy isn't even instrumental in solving the myste...more

This book was so AMAZING!! I totally loved it. It was about Jake Kuhn, a usual sitting charge of the Baby Sitters Club. He was gone missing for 2 whole days! He had been looking for some nails for a project to with his best friend Matt Braddock, in a construction site of building a house. There was a hole in the house and it was dark for Jake to see. He had fell into the hole. Ann M. Martin
The thing with these BSC mysteries is, well, it's the BSC. And the kid is a well-known one, not one just created for the book in order to go missing. So you know he's going to be found alive because oh hai, BSC. And that he's going to be brought home all safe and sound because he's a recurring character with siblings who have not gone missing.
This is a really great book full of mystery and suspense. You can feel so much emotion through the book and an interesting plot. What can I say? Babysitters club+mystery=BEST BOOK EVER!!!!

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.
