During a meeting, Mary Anne has a conflict with the other members of the Baby-Sitters Club which results in her being isolated. Because no one in the club is talking with her, she is lonely. With more time on her hands, Mary Anne meets Dawn, who has recently moved to Stoneybrooke. Together, the girls discover things about their parents and realize that they previously knew each other.
When Dawn discovers that Mary Anne was in a fight with her friends and not "absent" like Mary Anne said. In reality, they just did not want to be near Mary Anne. Now it is up to Mary Anne to resolve all of these conflicts.
BTSYA / Teen Reader (15):
The variety of storylines gives a reader a lot to get excited about. Mary Anne and Dawn becoming close friends opens new perspectives, away from the original situations the girls go through. That said, the book dragged on in spots, making the story boring and repetitive.
Borrow this book from the library, and start at book 1. The books can be read independently, but will make more sense if read in order because each book delves more into each character.
The realistic situations spill into worlds not related to a baby-sitters club. Readers who like to see themselves - in this case becoming more assertive - will enjoy this book.
None noted, though our teen reviewer says that there is flirtatious language.
This is a graphic novel adaptation to the popular series.
These are stories with real-life components that are great for discussion and role play.
