Poor Stacey. She just moved to a new town, is still coming to terms with her diabetes, and is facing baby-sitting problems left and right. Fortunately, Stacey has three new friends — Kristy, Claudia, and Mary Anne. Together they're the BSC — and they will deal with whatever's thrown their way... even if it's a rival baby-sitting club!
Raina Telgemeier, in the same signature style featured in Smile and Sisters, perfectly captures all the drama and humor of the original novel!
“The graphic adaptation of the hugely popular series has as much heart as the original. The black-and-white cartoons capture each character’s personality; the facial expressions say a lot. Each girl has her own style. The outfits have been updated but the skirts haven’t gotten shorter. A solid purchase for both school and public libraries.”
— School Library Journal
“Martin and Telgemeier have created an endearing graphic novel for young readers. Telgemeier’s b/w art is a perfect complement to Martin’s writing, forming a smooth synthesis for readers. This family-friendly volume should be a hit with ‘tween audiences and will even reach teens with its heavy nostalgia value.”
“Telgemeier, an Eisner Award nominee, creates characters who are expressive, endearing, and do a great job expressing the gawkiness of those tween and teen years.”

“The black-and-white graphics make an enormous impact on the story. I highly recommend this book.”
