Adventures in Babysitting meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer in this funny, action-packed sequel about a coven of witchy babysitters who realize their calling to protect the innocent and save the world from an onslaught of evil.

Esme Pearl’s life used to be all about bumming rides and babysitting. Sure, it wasn’t glamorous, but it was predictable. All that changed when Cassandra Heaven came to town, and they discovered their complicated, and connected, legacy: Esme and Cassandra are Sitters, supernaturally-gifted teens armed with an ever-changing grimoire of Sitter witchcraft to help them protect the innocent and keep evil demons at bay. You know, the typical teenage stuff.
But just as Esme is starting to adjust to—and maybe even like—her new normal, life lobs another glitter bomb her way. The Synod—the Sitterhood’s governing circle—has called a Summit, a once-in-a-generation gathering that promises training, education, and whole lot of ice-breakers.
Esme should be excited—a Summit might mean she can finally get the answers she desperately wants—but she can’t shake a building sense of panic. Especially since Cassandra’s not acting like herself; Esme’s dad is MIA; Pig is out of dog food; Janis is scared to be alone; and there’s a guy who seems too good to be true, again. Worst of all, it soon becomes clear, there’s no one watching the kids. It’s obvious the Summit is a haute mess, but will it be a deadly one, too?

Story Locale: Contemporary; Suburban America (small-town Kansas)

Series Overview: The Babysitters Coven (Book 1 HC-Fall 2019); The Babysitters Coven: For Better or Cursed (Book 2 HC-Fall 2020)

Like book 1 (on sale in PB this same season), this sequel is an incredibly funny, supernatural-lite read that assigns the age-old teen occupation of babysitting a higher level of meaning. Sitters are the protectors of the innocent, only the innocent are facing true evil in the form of supernatural demons.

Accessible and witty, this is a fantastic girl-power adventure with the smarts of Veronica Mars the kick- buttness of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Author has worked in mainstream media for many years and really understand teens and the current trends in teen culture.
