Truly Hilarious May 4 2006
By Myrrhine Trelayne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Bab is a melodramtic young lady with a habit of getting herself into hilarious scrapes as she attempt to deal with the indignity of not being allowed to be a debutante (deb) like her (slightly!) older sister.

This is one of the funniest books I have ever read. I still laugh out loud over Bab's sincere "lothing" of her enemies and her attempts to do good deed by helping others with their "speling."

Just fun Dec 17 2008
By Valerie Harris - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Ms. Rinehart seems to find a different line to follow with every book she writes. I was not expecting Bab to be what it is at all. First of all, it was the first Rinehart book I had ever read and I was beginning to think my Kindle was having a bad day or Ms. Rinehart was incapable of spelling anything. In actuality, I would say she is a very talented speller, besides being a very talented writer. Anyone who could mis-spell that many words and still be understood is a genius! Bab is a fun book to read. This young lady cannot seem to stay out of trouble no matter how much she tries. There is a mild mystery to her madness, but don't expect murder and mayhem.

Bab A Sub Deb is Great! Nov. 6 2007
By Anonymous1 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is one of the funniest books I have ever read. It reads just like a teenager writing it which is a credit to the author, M Reinhart.

The scrapes and adventures Bab gets herself into and the long suffering she puts up with are too funny (because of course the rest of the world just doesn't understand the woes of being a sub-deb). Bab is only a sub- deb as in the 1920's, young women were debutants and had their coming out parties at age 18. Poor Bab is only 16 and desperately wants to be older..remember when we all felt that way?

Read it for yourself and if you have an adolescent daughter, pass it on!

One more facet of Mary Roberts Rinehart's creativity May 2 2009
By Pattidkrause - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Since buying my Kindle 2, I have read many books I might never have read. Many years ago, I had discovered this author, but couldn't find very many books written by her, and had, more or less, forgotten her.

My husband is also an avid reader, so I limit my Kindle reading to books he is not likely to want to read, as I cannot think of giving up my Kindle long enough for him to read our favorite authors, whose books we most often buy from Amazon.

I loved this book! Reading about Bab reminds me of the "sub-deb" years of my own life, with the intense passing fancies, emotional roller-coasters, longings for true romance, moonlight and roses, and feelings of being totally misunderstood...particularly by my family. Bab, however, is somewhat more daring than I ever was...creating for herself the hilarious situations she finds herself in.

I, too, recommend this book for moms of teenage girls. We need to re-visit those years our daughters are now living, so that we don't just look at them from older, eyes and give them more reason to feel isolated and alone. Remembering might also save us some heartache and worry as we recall our own passage through those tempestuous years, and hope that they shall emerge from them intact and wiser.

funny funny funny Oct. 7 2010

Ok, Bab is a very lovable 17-year-old who can't seem to stay away from troubles and who just can't spell!!!! The story is hilarious and the characters are wonderful. You just can't beat Mary Rinehart. I love all her stories and this one is fit for both adults and teens. However, I think the misspelling is overdone a bit. This is a 17-year-old, not a 12-year-old!! Come on. Some of the words even an 8 year old would get them right!!
