I think it was great! Not the best book, but it was still good! Abby Hayes and Jessica are best friends, but then Jessica leaves to spend 3 months with her father, who she hasn't seen for years, because her mother and father are divorced. When Jessica leaves, Abby and her friends take over all her jobs. Only, Abby forgets to baby-sit Geoffery, Elaine's son, once. Elaine and Jessica are furious. Then, Abby realizes that Jessica, Natalie, and Sarah change, Abby can't wait until Jessica comes back, she wouldn't answer her letters! AND ELAINE IS STILL MAD!!!

I like the Abby Hayes Series a lot. This book was well written and probably one of the best in the series. The only thing I cannot stand about these books is that Abby and her friends are always in the fifth grade(even after summer). I think they've been in the same class of fifth graders for 3 years. Go on to 6th grade, Abby!!!

Have you ever had a friend move to another place for along time? Abby has. Jessica her best friend sence Kindergarton is moving to Oregon for three months to see her dad, who she hasnt seen for four years. Abbys sad she doesnt want Jessica to leave. When Jessica leaves all of her friends (Abby, Nataile, and Sara) take over Jessicas jobs. Nataile and Sarah take over walking dogs,and Abby gets to babysit Geffory,a scary nightmare, as Nataile puts it.Abby babysits Geffory once, and is sceduled to do so again, but when Abby forgets everything turns upside down. Isabel, Abbys perfict older sister takes over the babysitting job and the payment, none of Abbys family trusts her any more and Jessica hates her now, because she forgot. Abby has another job on her hands. She and her class were putting together a movie night to raise mony to donate to the relife found to help people in a natural desaster,and Abby is in charge of the anouncement posters. But when Abby forgets to put them up, Casey is there to help her, like any friend should. But Casey is the only one that is friendly to Abby ever sence she forgot to baby sit. All of her friends are mad at her. Abby trys her hardest to make things right. And when things get tough Casey is there to cheer her up.
