My 8 year old daughters Review:
I love this book. It made me laugh out loud. I love that Hailey is like me and loves video games and loves to write too! I can't wait to read her next book. My 8 year old daughter enjoyed the book and thought one day it would be fun to dress up to babysit.
Very cute book that kids between the ages 8-12 will enjoy with the fun themes and creative ideas the girls come up with to babysit and earn money for comic con.
The story shows the value of earning money and how hard work does pay off but only if you put 100% into the work.
Author is able to put in so much humor that parents will enjoy reading this story out loud. Kids will enjoy reading it because it keeps a good pace and doesn't slow down with "boring details"
Thank you Netgalley and the publisher for the advance copy.
Twelve-year-old Hailey and her friends form a unique babysitter’s club in order to raise money to see their favorite YouTube star at a local ComicCon in this hilarious M!X novel.
Twelve-year-old Hailey and her BFFs are all big fans of Collin Prince, a YouTube star, and swoon-worthy crush. So when the opportunity to meet him at a local Comic-Con comes up, the girls jump at the chance. The problem? The convention isn’t cheap—and the girls don’t have the money to go. But Hailey isn’t ready to give up just yet. In addition to meeting Collin at the convention, there is a young writer’s competition that she is determined to enter—and win.
The girls dream up Princesses and Pirates, Inc., a babysitting service where the girls will dress up in costume to entertain their charges. Of course, they aren’t as prepared as they thought they would be to deal with bratty kids, scheming older siblings (who are less than thrilled that their own babysitting jobs have dried up), and trying to balance their new “jobs” with school. And more responsibilities means less time for Hailey to work on her contest entry. Will their plan to make it to Comic-Con pay off…or could their business end up as shipwrecked as the pirates they portray?
ebook, 320 pages
