Stacey is leaving her entire New York City life behind.

Discover how the four become friends and that friendship grows into a very special club…

    This is an amazing prequel to the Babysitters Club series. The book looked very predictable, it looked a bit young for me..but it felt like the book was made for me! It makes your emotions change really quickly, one minute you’re sad, the next you’re really happy. This was a wowza book, just fabulous! I would recommend this book to girls aged 10 – 13. It’s one of those cosy up down on the sofa with hot chocolate kind of books!

    I loved this book! But it was disappointing when Frankie dumped Claudia. I also enjoyed the part when Claudia and Kristy had their birthday party. I recommend this book for 8 year olds, since the book has no pictures in it.
