Need carseat for 5 year old! Help!

My friend is babysitting a 5 yo. The child's parents don't have her in a carseat or booster They could care less about carseat safety. What's the cheapest seat she could buy to have for this child? Thanks!

She can go pick up a $15 Harmony Literider or Evenflo Amp (backless boosters).

Graco high back Turbo Booster maybe? I saw them at Costco recently for a little over $30, closer to $50 at Target or Walmart.

I'd do the Harmony at Wal-mart or the Amp at Target.

Assuming she has head rests in the back seat I'd do a harmony or amp backless booster, if not a high back turbo.
