Did The Baby-Sitters Club get you through those tough moments as a kid or pre-teen? Then you'll love how relatable The Jaded Quitters Club is to 21st century adult life! In these illustrations, Siobhán Gallagher reimagines all the BSC  gals as 20-somethings in the age of social media and hip cultural flux. I think I relate most to "Kristy and the Cancelled Plans," but "Mallory and the Sassy Online Persona" also has me groaning about my cynical, technology-filled existence (in a good way).

Throwback!

Siobhán told BUST about the JQC: "I came up with the idea and starting drawing them in 2014 because I constantly compare my own life milestones to those of fictional characters, especially ones from my childhood. I always loved the girls in the Baby-Sitters Club (who were impossibly ambitious and entrepreneurial by age 11-13) so I wondered, what if that was their peak? I thought it would be funny to find out they're just like everyone else now."

Check out some of these awesome illustrations below, which poke fun at the millennial quotidian while evoking some nostalgia for the "simpler times" under the covers reading BSC.
