Gabby Duran and the Unsittables by Elise Allen and Daryle Conners is a wacky story about a girl with out of this world babysitting skills.
Duran has never shied away from challenging clients. She may be only
12, but she has the creativity and composure to deal with the most
mischievous or obstinate child, and her babysitting business is booming.
In fact, her skills draw the attention of some highly unusual clients:
aliens. Gabby's career is about to be launched in a whole new direction.
If she's successful the rewards could be huge, enough to put her
through college and set her entire family on stable financial footing --
but if she fails, the consequences could be, well, cosmic.
so much fun reading this book. It's a light, quick read, packed with
the sort of humor that will delight young readers. I'm hoping that this
is just the first of many adventures for Gabby Duran!
