Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In this spirited sequel to Split Sisters , spunky 12-year-old Case must prove herself by tracking down the sitter who disappears with her baby sister. Ages 8-12.
Copyright 1991 Reed Business Information, Inc.

From School Library Journal

Grade 5-7-- In this sequel to Split Sisters (Macmillan, 1986), the irrepressible Case tackles new situations: a colicky baby sister; an older sister whose interest in boys makes Case feel left out; her first real date with her best friend, Willie; and trying to convince others that she really is a terrific kid, despite her "fast mouth." Adler's forte lies in presenting credible, complex family dynamics that encompass a range of feelings from sadness to humor. In a nice touch, Case is closer to her stepfather than to her mother. As often in Adler's work, the parents are human, hassled, and fall off of the proverbial pedestal. In the throes of the baby's incessant crying, they hastily choose a disturbed babysitter who ends up kidnapping little Meredith. Some readers may feel that this serious, important issue is treated too lightly and without enough credibility. However, this family story, with humor and a touch of mystery, dialogue that rings true, and a likable first-person narrator, is certain to appeal to both those who have read Split Sisters and those who haven't. --Connie Tyrrell Burns, Mahoney Middle School, South Portland, Maine
