This is a book about friend in the 7th grade. They all babysit younger kids(and dogs). Kristy decided they could make a club to earn more money. All of her friends joined in and they had some ups and downs while babysitting. There journing started as The Babysitters Club.

im a fan of the bsc, always have been since the 4th grade till now(im now 22) Stacey is diabetic and she has a hard time dealing with it...not because of the fact that she is ill, but because those who are around her seems to bug into her personal life continously...though she has great friends in Stoneybrook, she still have dilemas and problems with her past life in NY...The truth About Stacey is a touching Novel...for both childrens and returning fans of the babysitters club...it brings fun and thoughts into those that are young...and truth and meaning to those who are older...BSB is made for all age =) i highly recommend the old BSB novel...but this comic one is a great read as well.

This is good. I liked how Stacey's illnness is portrayed. This stays true to the original books, but I just realized you didn't do Claudia and the Phantom Phone Calls. That is one of my favorites! SO dissappointed. I'm guessing only certain ones will be done. All in all, I do recommend this as a buy, but if you want to go in true book order, you'll have to read the ones that are skipped.

The truth about Stacey is a great book for everyone who likes to read about people with typical lives. This book talks about the job of a baby sitter, and the life lessons they learn as they deal with a new baby sitters agency. They face many difficulties with the agency???

The Babysitters Club: The Truth About Stacey (graphic novel) by Ann M. Martin and Raina TelgemeierStacey moved to Stoneybrook from New York City. She didn¿t mind leaving, because she had a falling out with her best friend after Stacey became sick which turned out to be diabetes. Now a part of the Baby-sitters Club, she gets lots of babysitting jobs, until the Baby-sitting Agency turns up! The BSA has older babysitters who can stay out later and have more members. However, it turns out, that just because they¿re older doesn¿t mean that they are better babysitters. The parents find this out and take their loyalties back to the Baby-Sitters Club. While visiting a doctor in New York City, Stacey ends up making up with her old best friend as well.The graphic novel format version of this book is fun! The comic style pictures show the characters¿ styles, personalities, and emotions. I remember reading these books as a child, and I don¿t feel like any of the story was taken away by being made into a comic book. I think this book would help capture the attention of students who may have trouble seeing the pictures in their head.

This is an adaptation of the original story, which I have not read. I found this book to be easy to read, enjoyable, with a problem to solve and a solution at the end. The girls in the book have to overcome a rival babysitting service while Stacey has to come to terms with her diabetes diagnoses. For some high school girls this story may be a little too young since the chracters are in junior high school but it certainly is age appropriate for junior high students. The title is a little misleading or maybe enticing, because as the reader I am thinking, "Oh, what is the truth?" but it turns out that Stacey has diabetes and moves to a small town in Connecticut from New York City. The plot didn't seem forced, the graphic novel format flowed really well, was easy to read and follow.

Another hit graphic novel based on the Baby-Sitters Club series. This was one of my favorite books growing up and Telgemeier has really done it justice. Stacey is the featured character in this book and she's dealing with her diabetes. Her parents want her to go see a fancy doctor in New York and Stacey doesn't want to go. She's got really mixed feelings about her treatmenst and New York since her best friend stopped talking to her when Stacey got sick. To make matters worse, the BSC might be in trouble! A new baby-sitting business is stealing their clients by offering a range of older sitters. The girls of the BSC know they're better sitters, but how can they compete?Again, highly recommended for fans of the original series. I hope they adapt more books from the series!!
