Ann M. Martin Herself Couldn't Get 15/15 On This Baby-Sitters Club Quiz

That… wasn’t great.

You did about as well as Claudia does on tests in school. Which is to say that you didn’t do very well at all. And you probably didn’t even realize that was a burn, because you clearly don’t know a lot about these books.

That… wasn’t great.

You got most of those questions right!

You did about as well on this quiz as Dawn did on her blind date with Logan’s cousin Lewis. Which is to say, not bad! You did pretty well, but you’re not exactly impressing anyone.
