"We Are the Baby-Sitters Club is a complicated paean to Ann M. Martin's serial magnum opus, grappling with its loose ends and blind spots through the passionate insight of grown-up fans; it's a varied volume of deeply personal literary criticism that takes tween girls' lives and culture seriously--finally!" --Johanna Fateman, founding member of Le Tigre

"Reading this anthology was like having a big, boisterous, long-awaited conversation with friends in which we shared our great love of the series, and filled in the parts of us it failed to mirror. It was a joy, a relief, and a homecoming that I hadn't known I needed. More than a book about a series of books, it is an ode to the child readers we were, and the ways we have learned to name the experiences we couldn't find written." --Melissa Febos, author of Abandon Me & Girlhood
