Karen's Brothers is the seventeenth book in the Baby-Sitters Little Sister series.

Back Cover Summary[]

Karen has three older brothers, and sometimes they are a pain. They won't take Karen to the movies. And they don't let her play football with them.

Karen is so mad she decides not to talk to any boy — not her daddy or even the boy pets in her family. And maybe then Karen's brothers will stop treating her like a girl!

Summary[]

Karen stops talking to her brothers and the boys in her class. After getting into a fight with Pamela, Karen bets that she wouldn't play football. There's a class wide game of football in chapter 20 without Pamela and her friends. Hank threw the ball in the woods, Nancy scored but its unclear for which team, Terri and Tammy switch places, and Natalie shouts home run when Bobby scores a touch down.
