Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Ann Sanger
Having diabetes turns life upside down for seventh grader Stacey McGill. Hospital stays and numerous doctors' appointments cause her to miss a lot of school. From the onset of her disease, Stacey starts to lose most of her friends. In addition, Stacey's best friend, Laine, ignores her and doesn't want to be around her anymore. However, things turn around when Stacey's family moves from New York City to a small town in Connecticut. When school starts in September, she meets Claudia. Claudia's two friends, Kristy and Mary Ann, plan to form a Baby-Sitters Club. When they invite Stacey to join, she is thrilled. Friends at last! The club works so well because clients need call only one number to reach four baby-sitters. The club meets three times a week and jobs are divided between the four friends. All is going well and the girls are receiving many assignments, until they discover they have competition from the Baby-Sitters Agency. Colorful flyers announce the Agency has a whole network of responsible sitters ages thirteen and up who can work late night hours. Stoneybrook Middle School is in for some interesting capers as the four friends check out their rivals. In the midst of the trials, Stacey travels back to New York for more doctors' visits and renews her friendship with Laine. Back in Connecticut, the Baby-Sitters Club continues losing clients to the older teens until the children speak out against the new sitters. The fast-paced story deals with typical issues which plague middle school students. This book is funny, yet teaches some valuable lessons. Information dealing with the symptoms and complications of diabetes would be helpful for young girls whether they have diabetes or simply know a friend who does. Readers are sure to want to read all four books. Reviewer: Ann Sanger
