The Baby-Sitters Club: Where Are They Now?
The Hairpin

I find it crazy how people always push Abby to the side, and focus on “founding” members, when only four of the members actually started the whole club. Dawn, Mallory, Jessi, and Abby are not founding members. Mallory might get a pass because she’s been in the series since the beginning, but the others were added in later. Jessi was thrown in there because there was pressure for the author to diversify her characters (which is why Jessi is hardly developed as a character at all). I don’t understand this hate for Abby. I guess she doesn’t resonate with the generation that grew up with BSC in the 1980s because she came so late in the series… I liked her as a teen because I’m a twin and related well to many of her stories. XD

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
