Get Well Soon, Mallory is the 69th book in The Baby-Sitters Club series.

Back Cover SummaryEdit

Mallory hasn't been feeling well for awhile now. And finally she discovers why she's been so tired and run-down. Mallory has mono.

Having mono means staying in bed and resting — for a long time. No school, no activities, no baby-sitting, and no Baby-sitters Club.

Mallory is crushed. So are the Baby-sitters. It's bad enough that Dawn is away in California. But now it looks like Mallory's out of the club, too....

SummaryEdit

Ann M. Martin's Dear Reader LetterEdit

Dear Reader,

In Get Well Soon, Mallory!, Mallory comes down with mono and has to leave the club until she’s better. As a child I was very healthy, and I rarely missed school. However, early in June at the end of sixth grade, I had an accident. I fell out of a tree fort in my back yard and landed on a stump, rupturing my spleen. (For those of you who read the Baby-sitters Little Sister books, you will recognize this story in #81, Karen’s Accident.) When this happened, I was playing in our woods with my best friend, Beth, and our neighbor Jessi. Jessi was trying out our new archery set, and when I fell out of the tree, she thought she had shot me! She hadn’t, of course. But that night I had surgery to remove my spleen, and I stayed in the hospital for a week. Being in the hospital wasn’t all bad, though. For one thing, the hospital was just down the street from my school. One day at lunchtime, my teacher brought several of my classmates to visit. They weren’t allowed in the hospital, but they stood outside and we visited through the window. After a week I was allowed to leave the hospital, and then I stayed in bed for another week. I missed the rest of school that year.

After reading this book, you might think that I had mono when I was a kid. I did have mono, but not until I was forty — years after I wrote this book. Usually I write a story about something that has already happened to me. This time, something happened to me after I had written about it in a book. Let’s hope that doesn’t happen too often.
