{Synopsis} – Dawn Schafer is the newest member of The Baby-sitters Club. While she’s still adjusting to life in Stoneybrook after moving from sunny California, she’s eager to accept her first big job. But taking care of the three Barrett kids would be too much for any baby-sitter. The house is always a mess, the kids are out of control, and Mrs. Barrett never does any of the things she promises. On top of all that, Dawn wants to fit in with the other members of the BSC, but she can’t figure out how to get along with Kristy. Was joining The Baby-sitters Club a mistake?

A graphic novel adaptation of the original story.

{My thoughts} – Dawn ends up taking on a little more then she can handle. She ends up baby-sitting for the Barrett kids and learns it isn’t an easy task. Mrs. Barrett barely talks to her, doesn’t fill her in on important things and becomes hard to reach. On top of all of that the kids become dependent on Dawn instead of their mother.

This book touches on what it is like for a child to be kidnapped by their own parent. The steps that need to be taken if something like it should happen. It also shows a happy ending and in many situations that isn’t the case, but it was the outcome in this book.

I really do like these books because they touch base on topics that aren’t always talked about in books for children of this age. I like that they are turning them into graphic novels and making them more modern for today’s readers. I look forward to reading the next book in the series soon!

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
