Until I was about twenty-seven, I was absolutely terrified I would wet the bed. Now, I have never, ever wet the bed as an adult or a child, but I figured if I ever accidentally wet the bed, I was going to end up with diabetes (or at least a lot of blood work to find out I didn't have it) so basically I trained my bladder to awaken me upon the slightest hint, which means up until I forced myself out of this habit, I was getting up every night about five and six times for next to nothing.

So cute I can't wait to read the next two they are such light quick reads!!

Smile, Sisters, and Drama, by Raina Telgemeier. All three are Middle Grades graphic novels, the first two memoir and the last realistic fiction. They were published in 2010, 2012, and 2014 (not respectively). They have all been NY Times bestsellers and have won numerous awards.


For me, a sad part of reading a graphic novel is that it goes so quick. I enjoyed reading Smile, but man did it read fast. For me, it was just one sitting, not even an afternoon, like as long as it would take me to pe
These books hold up so well, particularly with their new outfits and context via Ms. Telgemeier (We ADORE Telgemeier at our house). I appreciate the girls' varying strengths, attitudes, and the way they work out problems together. It's not preachy - it's how life kinda works for a lot of kids like me and my friends and for my kids and their friends. Just every day stuff, done so well.
I'm almost glad there aren't more of them - Littlest Kid had to get used to reading regular novels to find out wh

This book gives me a feeling of excitements and confidence.You should really read this book because that giving up is not a solution to problems. This book shows many themes that I think that you guys should read about,I mean doesn't even the title get you excited like I mean come on guys doesn't "The Baby-Sitters Club" make you wonder what this is all about. I swear that this book gives me so entertained that sometimes i can't even stop reading the book.Therefor I think you should really read ...more

I read The Truth about Stacey by Raina Telgemier. I enjoyed this book because it was very funny and relatable. I loved this book especially in the series because of the main character Stacey. She moved from New York City. It was fun to read about considering the fact I have also moved several times. I thought it was very funny how when she was telling her friends she was diabetic all of her friends thought she was about to say she was anorexic. I did like how it was the comic book version of the ...more

I’m a fan of Raina Telgemeier’s graphic novels, and I loved the Baby-Sitters Club novels in junior high. I think Raina is a great choice for adapting these stories into a graphic series because her playful, cartoony style is appealing to young readers, and I suspect she’s a fan. (A BSC book made a cameo in her graphic memoir Smile.)

This second book adapts the third original novel, and is from seventh-grader Stacey’s perspective. It shows how her diabetes affects her life. Her friends in New York

As a fan of the original BSC series of books, I was glad to get this book, so I could see the BSC girls as manga characters. But, I kept it on the shelf, keeping on meaning to read it, but never doing so. Then, this month, a Goodreads club I'm in had a thread where you use to pick a number of a book on your to-read shelf, and my number matched this one. I still kept placing it aside to read other books, such as library books, but did finally finish it today.

Suddenly her parents force her to move to a small town in Connecticut where she restarts her life with the help of the local Baby-sitters Club. Things are going well until two older girls start the Babysitting Agency and start stealing the Club's clients. Follow Stacy as she works to come to terms with her diabetes and tries to save her Club's future.

I love this book. I have read this book probably a billion times and IYet I still love it. I recommend it for any girl, any age. People may think this book is like the other babysitters club book but nah those are boring. This one is way better and honestly it's wayyyy better. If you haven't noticed yet the author of this book is Raina T. Which is the author of many #1 books. For examples, drama and smile, which I believe gives you one more reason to read this book.
very good

This book is about Stacey still coming to terms with her diabetes. She commonly has to go see doctors in New York. And back at home a rival baby sitting service called the baby sitters agency starts up and the baby sitters club is getting. Less calls. I'm a huge fan of the baby sitters club series. I hope to see more. :)
I'm not a big fan of this series, (I prefer the Boxcar Children series) and I'm also not a big fan of the graphic novel version. I prefer the chapter book setting because that is what I grew up reading, but I definitely know why most kids today would prefer the graphic novel version. It provides them with visuals, and this is great especially for struggling readers. Seeing the pictures might give them a better idea of what is happening. I also see why children like this series, it is about reali ...more
This is a wonderful book about 4 inspiring middle school girls joining a club called the baby sitters club so you can probably guess what they are doing...... They are baby sitting and through out the series there are twists and turns. The babysitters club is a wonderful graphic novel!!!!!

Genre: graphic novel
Summary: Stacey has diabetes but her friends don't understand it so she feels isolated and alone, but as she helps the baby-sitter's club overcome some job competition she learns how to handle her condition and find friends again.
Response: I read the baby-sitters club books when I was younger and I loved them. This is the same story in a different genre, a graphic novel which tells the story more in pictures than words. It was a very quick read but it did deal with a variety

Stacy moved too a new town and is still coming in terms with her diabetes. Luckily she meets 3 new true friends: Kristy, Claudia, and Mary Anne. Now together they joined to become the BSC (Baby-Sitters Club). When things looked like they were going well, a new baby-sitter agency tries to throw them off by competing with the BSC. The Baby-Sitters Agency is handing out fliers so people will call them and not the BSC. For example Kristy says, "The flier says the baby-sitters are 13 and older. Liz a ...more

Stacey is the new girl in town. She left with her family from New York City. It is hard being the new girl in town. Stacey finds comfort and friends while being a member of the Babysitter's Club. However, Stacey is worried that they will find out about her have diabetes and then they won't want to be friends with her. This graphic novel was easy to follow and a quick read. Raina Telgemeier did a wonderful job with the illustrations. She made them clear and to the point using many dialogue bubbl ...more

After spending most of my time at work at this amazing BSC blog I found out there was a graphic novel adaptation of my beloved childhood series.

I think these actually work much better than the original books. The dialogue flows much better and the (sometimes) staccato succession of events that take place in your typical BSC books really benefits from this sort of presentation. I definitely recommend it to anyone who was a big fan of the books but can't stand to read more than one sentence about
Short, amusing and adventurous. I really enjoyed this series and when I started reading I just wouldn't stop!!!
The graphic novel versions of Martin’s hugely popular Baby-Sitters Club series feature straightforward black-and-white art with stark black details and story lines that have been trimmed a bit from the originals. Telgemeier successfully retells the original tales that feature 11- to 13-year-old girls and loads of action, comedy, and emotion. Also see the other titles in the series: Mary Anne Saves the Day and Kristy's Great Idea (both Scholastic/Graphix, 2006). These books don't 'do' a great dea ...more
The graphic novel format was a fun way to revisit a book from the series I loved so much as a kid.
