5.0 out of 5 stars Someone out there's after the baby-sitters...
The BSC are stalked!!! They are "'followed" everywhere they go, like Claudia's house on fire, and a rock being thrown into Kristy's window, and Stacey facing a life-and-death scene on the road. Will this continues when the baby-sitters head for Shadow Lake? Or will it stop? The baby-sitters fight their way to get clues, but some clues are just too weird...

3.0 out of 5 stars A Weak but Overall Good Bildungsroman
I found this particular installment of TBC to be particularly lacking in three ways. Firstly, the characterisation, which is usually so strong, was quite weak and I didn't really "feel" for any of the girls. Secondly, I found the plot trite, and I noticed that it seemed to hinge on the chapter headings. Thirdly, I found the grammar simplistic and...

3.0 out of 5 stars A Weak but Overall Good Bildungsroman, 9 Feb. 1999
By A Customer
I found this particular installment of TBC to be particularly lacking in three ways. Firstly, the characterisation, which is usually so strong, was quite weak and I didn't really "feel" for any of the girls. Secondly, I found the plot trite, and I noticed that it seemed to hinge on the chapter headings. Thirdly, I found the grammar simplistic and over-repetetive. However, I found that upon multiple readings, the book avails itself to the patient reader, e.g., upon deconstructing the plot itself, we find multiple removals from the unknown X plot-construction-algorythym and thus each major incident in the plot adds a new level. If this is taken into account, the author's satiric intentions come to light. Is not the Stalker the inevitability of human death, and the girls denial of the same? To live in perpetual youth has been a common theme in the human mythological corpus since the earliest recorded literature, and Ms. Martin's exploration of the theme is done with sincerity and a writer's touch.

5.0 out of 5 stars I think this is a really great book for intermedites, 11 Dec. 1996
By A Customer
In this book, the BSC takes a vacation to get away from the threating things that are happenning in Stoneybrook. I think this is a great book because Ann M. Martin is a compromise writer. She writes books for all of the kids ages 9-11, a group that is too young to read young adult liturature, but too old to read childrens' books.

4.0 out of 5 stars It was a good book , I'd recommend it ., 28 Jun. 1998
By A Customer
I like the way Abby had enough courage to throw the chunk of ice at Woodie Tate. I also respect the way the BSC handled the situation. I think it's funny the way Shannon ( human ) scolded Astrid. I think '' Baby-Sitters Beware'' was a good book and would recommend it.
