How does one sibling deal with being the survivor when the other sibling is maimed- physically, mentally, or both - for life? That is the scenario with which THE BABYSITTER begins. The situation is very realistic: on sister is thrilled to have the attention of the older boy in their high school, and so she offers the night earnings plus a cash bonus to her older sister. If the older sister relieves her of the babysitting duties, then the younger sister can go to the party and hang out with the school stud. Everything goes quickly downhill from there, and there is neither a motive nor a clear perpetrator of the crime. This book seems to be one that will keep the reader turning the pages !
