Summary, etc.:
After new student Cassandra Heaven joins seventeen-year-old Esme Pearl's babysitters club, the girls learn that being a babysitter really means a heroic lineage of superpowers, magic rituals, and saving the innocent from evil.
Esme Pearl has a babysitters club. It's kinda lame, but Esme likes babysitting, and she's good at it. And she needs the money-- it seems like destruction follows her wherever she goes. Why is Cassandra Heaven willing to do anything, even take on a potty-training two-year-old, to join Esme's babysitters club? Turns out, Esme and Cassandra have a lot in common, and they're about to discover what being a babysitter really means: a heroic lineage of superpowers, magic rituals, and saving the innocent from seriously terrifying evil. And all before the parents get home. -- adapted from jacket

    Esme Pearl? Not the coolest. She has one friend, and her main hobby is babysitting. Everyone else her age may have gotten a "real" job by now, but Esme likes kids, and the baby­sitters club she started with her best friend helps distract her from the fact that her mom, who had a babysitters club of her own, has been in a mental health facility for years. Then Esme's mostly normal life gets turned inside out by several weird things all at once. The kids she's babysitting report odd sightings of strangers in costume in their rooms at night. New girl Cassandra Heaven, super beautiful, super cool, wants to join Esme's babysitting club for some reason. And, oh yeah, Esme starts experiencing bouts of telekinesis. This debut winks at '90s cult horror films, though Esme fares significantly better than the average babysitter—she's a bit of a Buffy, albeit one you'd trust with kids. A high-energy series starter that's plenty of fun. Grades 7-10. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
