Finding a middle school book series my two middle school aged kids would enjoy has been difficult. I was hopeful when my daughter agreed to read the Gabby Duran and the Unsittables (affiliate.) Usually she isn’t interested in the books I suggest. She opened the book up and started to read it. That is the first step to getting them to read…opening the book!
Gabby Duran and The Unsittables
Gabby Duran is a member of the Association Linking intergalactic and Earthlings (A.L.I.E.N.) which means she will be babysitting extraterrestrials. Gabby has proven to be an excellent babysitter and was flying around the country babysitting for celebrities kids (humans.)
Gabby gets her first assignment watching a little girl from the planet Flarknartia, but she also has a band audition that night. Gabby must babysit the extraterrestrial in the halls of the middle school. And she must not let anyone know about the A.L.I.E.N. secret.
That is a lot even for an extraordinary babysitter.
This is the first book of a new middle school book series which will be available in stores on May 12.
