I loved this book. It tells you all the details about Stacey's ( sickness). Stacey has a secret and needs to be brave enough to stand up to her overstressed parents. A note from me: Turn evil to good. Get inspired. Be admired. Show the world the REAL you.

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.

I am ten and i have type one diabetes. I have had it for two or three years. I take over 1,000 shots a year. I agree it was hard telling my friends i had diabetes. Before lunch i would always have to leave early to take my shot. I finnaly just told my friends why. I am the only person out of over 600 kids in my school to have it. This story looks interesting to read because i know what she has to go through. I hope i could read it soon.

Having diabetes is the worst thing imaginable, according to Stacey McGill. Her parents treat her like a child. The hospital stays and doctor visits make her miss school a lot, and she loses most of her friends due to them either getting mad that she's not spending any time with them or the fact that they think she's too sick. When Stacey moves to Stoneybrook, she meets Claudia, Kristy, and Mary Anne. When they invite her to join the Baby-sitters Club, she's thrilled! She's afraid, however, that when they find out about her diabetes they won't want to be friends with her anymore. Things become troublesome for the four when rivals come into town called the Babysitters Agency. With the Agency's ability to do late-night hours and having more babysitters, the Baby-sitters Club is worried that they'll have to close up shop. Stacey's plate gets even more full when she starts having to make frequent trips to New York City. With all babysitters needed "on deck" to battle the rivals, Stacey's absences start getting noticed by Kristy and the others. How long will Stacey be able to keep her secret a secret? What will happen when her new friends figure out the truth? A fun, quick story that does a great job of developing Stacey in this series. The author does a great job of balancing Stacey's internal and external problems. The plot is well-done, and the characters are likable. Readers who like realistic fiction, stories about New York, and tales about friendship will enjoy THE TRUTH ABOUT STACEY.

This is the first BSC book that I read.It made a great impression because I got hooked.Stacy really showed bravery. Not that the BSC would betray her any way.But after all Stacys from NY so you could`nt expect any thing less.

read this one because stacey has the diabetes; a major source of drama in her young life. i mean, check out the cover of the book, she wants that candy bad. so naturally, her friends are puzzled as to why the hell she can't eat candy with them anymore. it takes the BSC gang a lot of prodding and spying to get stacey's secret out of her. when her friends do finally learn the truth about stacey, they are surprisingly supportive. an absorbingly educational read about a subject i knew little to nothing about when i was seven years old.
