{The Truth About Stacey: Raina Telgemeier, Ann M. Martin}

{Synopsis} – America’s favorite baby-sitters come to life in a new graphic novel series!

Poor Stacey. She’s moved to a new town. She’s still coming to terms with her diabetes. She’s facing baby-sitting problems left and right. And her parents are no help.

Luckily, Stacey has three new, true friends — Kristy, Claudia, and Mary Anne. Together they’re the BSC — and they will deal with whatever’s thrown their way… even if it’s a rival baby-sitting club!

{My thoughts} – Stacey is one of the four main baby-sitters and in this book we get to learn more about her and the disease she has called diabetes. She is struggling with it so much because her parents are trying to control everything about her life. I couldn’t imagine being her age and feeling so powerless, however, I am sure it is a very common occurrence with sick children.

The Baby-Sitters Club is also having some issues. They are losing business to the new Baby-Sitters Agency that has started up. The biggest problem is that the agency has older children that can stay out baby-sitting later and parents prefer that over the younger children with earlier curfews. Eventually though the parents start getting complaints from their children and then the parents have a choice to make.

I really enjoyed reading about Stacey some more. I also like how the Baby-Sitters Club was able to deal with their conflict with The Baby-Sitters Agency. I think this book has a lot to offer to children and that it is well worth the time spent reading it.

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
