What an ass, or Sleepover Friends #12 Kate’s Sleepover Disaster

This was a follow up to Lauren’s Sleepover Exchange, where the farm kids from Walden stayed with the gang in Riverhurst. Now they get to go to Walden where taking a week off from school is apparently okay with everyone. What if someone isn’t allowed to go? Do they just not go to school for a week? Anyhoo, they mostly run around the farm and eat like pigs. What a letdown.

The book before this is the one where they all thought that Stephanie’s dad lost his job, when it turns out that Ms. Green was knocked up. So the gals entered all sorts of sweepstakes and they didn’t realize that they ended up winning a burro. Instead of giving the girls a good slap to the back of the head for doing that, the Greens kept the burro for a while, let it destroy their garage and yard, and pay for it to be in a stable. And basically bend over and take it from Stephanie.

Rebecca Newman from Walden agrees to take it, and Mr. Green is all “yay! I’ll rent a trailer and drive five fucking hours to drop you off and deliver this damn animal and then turn around and go right home! Just what I wanted to do!” Because Stephanie is the most spoiled child ever.

So they are at the farm and the stupid donkey (is that synonymous with burro?) keeps escaping. Also, Kate is staying with some girl Wanda whose family are atrocious slobby pigs, which is explained because their mother is away. Which is totally sexist. Stephanie claims she knows all about controlling kids and comes by and bribes the kids to behave by giving them lots of her stylish black, white, and red clothes. I guess Stephanie learned from her parents about buying children’s respect when they gave her her own fucking house for her birthday.

And they eat…a lot. These books are like food porn. They have pancake breakfasts and go to donut shops, have huge turkey dinners and talk about how they constantly eat until they feel sick and want to burst. Can someone teach these girls healthy eating habits? And to stop eating when they are full? This is going to give them problems later on.

And still, parents let these brats get into all sort of mischief and never get mad. During a truth or dare game, Lauren is dared to sneak out to a haunted cabin, and then Stephanie falls in the lake and screams and wakes everyone up at like 2am, especially the farmer parents who have to be up at 4am. And no one is mad. Parents are doormats in this world. apparently.
