Dawn's a little jealous when there's a formal ceremony to welcome Jessi and Mallory into the Baby-sitters Club. Don't people know that Dawn's a special baby-sitter, too?
Then it's Dawn's turn to shine. Mrs. Pike wants her to help prepare Margo and Claire for the Little Miss Stoneybrook contest. So what if Margo's only talent is peeling a banana with her feet? Dawn's going to help her charges win that contest any way she can. The only trouble is... Kristy, Mary Anne, and Claudia are helping Karen, Myriah, and Charlotte enter the contest, too. And nobody's sure where the competition is fiercer: at the pageant - or in the Baby-sitters Club! (from Goodreads)
Series: #15 in the Baby-Sitters Club series
Rating: 3 stars
Dawn is a brat. Also, I hate the fact that everyone is treating Jeff like he's being selfish for wanting to go back to California when Connecticut is obviously making him depressed and angry. You guys are the selfish ones.
The competition was cute, and the rivalry was a bit annoying but age-appropriate.
All in all, not to bad.
