It's time for the annual child sacrifice, known as the 'Sleeping Over'. Genders get split down the middle. It is the girl's turn.

This year, the sacrifice will take place at Karen's father's house- also known as the Old Brewer Mansion. The warring Brewer tribe has been in chaos for years, and it is hoped that this sacrifice will appease the mighty elders, Watson and Lisa.

The initial sacrifice appears to be Nancy. She must put her head on the chopping block to save Karen and her family. However,

In terms of books that are for and about little kids, I strongly prefer the Junie B. Jones series.

This book was just bad. Half the characters were brats, the plot was resolved near the middle of the book (leaving the rest to be boring and anticlimactic), and the dialogue was forced beyond belief.

Ahh to be young again. Sleepover parties, pizza deliveries, ghost stories & raiding the refrigerator.

Remember when raiding the refrigerator was like this epic adventure? Sneaking around in the dark so as not to alert anyone of your planned pilfering of goodies to share with your friends? How tedious, to think of it now. To have to sneak into your own fridge to eat something. Back then it was an event. Carefully planned & executed.

Anyway, Karen has a sleepover. Lots of fun and party act

This book was again okay like most of the other books in this series. I don't remember it well if at all, I think there was something about making their own pizzas involved if I remember correctly. Anyway again I think young girls would like this book. Thats all for now.

In this book, we're introduced to Pamela Harding, middle-class suburbia's biggest snotface. I like to think that eventually she grew up and realized what a hilariously colossal bitch she was to everyone.

I liked that there was a birthday party and she invited a friend, but it wasn't really her friend. It was just someone new and she didn't really like her.

What young girl did not love the Baby-Sitters Club and Karen, the Baby-Sitters Little Sister?
