Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gabby Duran is a sixth-grade supersitter. Kids love her and parents worship her, so much so that she takes a private plane to out-of-state sitting jobs and has to recruit her extra-organized little sister Carmen to manage her bookings and travel schedule. But when Gabby's skills attract the attention of some . . . otherworldly clients, will her mixture of enthusiasm and empathy enable her to survive a session with a uniquely abled, and uniquely terrifying, eight-year-old? Gabby and her friends are all well-rounded, lively characters who are fun to get to know. Especially gratifying is Gabby's account of learning to understand Carmen, who appears to have some non-neurotypical attributes, and how that informs her babysitting philosophy. Overall, Allen and Conners' goofy inventions, wild plot, and peppy dialogue keep things light. Readers who have previously visited Dan Greenburg's Weird Planet or Ray O'Ryan's Galaxy Zack series, as well as fans of Ursula Vernon's Dragonbreath series will be delighted by the blend of real-world drama and far-out sci-fi humor in this briskly plotted crowd-pleaser.--Willey, Paula Copyright 2015 Booklist"
