the only good thing about this book is that dawn leaves. it's just too bad she didn't take mary anne with her.

dawn's claifornia best friend, sunny, calls & tells dawn & that her mom has been diagnosed with lung cancer. things don't look so great. dawn is horrified & decides she wants to move back to california--permanently. partly to support sunny, but also because she realizes that california is her home & she misses it too much. she misses the beach, the weather, her dad, jeff,

yes, I had blast from the past moments when I read this book. I adored the BSC books when I was younger. I had every single book up to the age where I felt I got too old for them. I think that was somewhere around sixty something. Anyway, I was looking at my library online service, and this book was on the front page. I figured I would belittle fun and read it. One thing I realized when I read this book was that I had missed my childhood friends! It felt good to get back in touch with the girls. ...more

Dawn wants to go to California again.

This is a familiar dance by now. Her parents set the wheels in motion yet again. There is an air of finality this time. I guess her parents figure that she always wants to go to Cali and rarely really wants to come back, so this is probably her last move.

Dawn tells Kristy first, wanting to give her plenty of time to think through club logistical stuff, but asks her to keep it a secret, since she doesn’t know yet how she’ll break it to Mary Anne. But the secr
Fantastic books for young girls getting into reading!! Great stories about friendship and life lessons. The characters deal with all sorts of situations and often find responsible solutions to problems.

I loved this series growing up and wanted to start my own babysitting business with friends. Great lessons in entrepreneurship for tweens.

The books may be dated with out references to modern technology but the story stands and lessons are still relevant.

Awesome books that girls will love! And the

Honestly, this is pretty much just a (worse) retake on "Dawn's Big Trip". Kinda ridiculous that she goes through SO much thinking when it's just temporary, and pretty much makes the decision from one day to the next when it's permanent. I'll miss her though. Granted, she's not my favourite BSC'er, but she's still a LOT better than Abby!
Oh, Dawn, is it rough knowing that you could purchase a surfboard every single frakking time you go flying across the country? I'm sorry about your mom and all, but how spoiled are you -- how many families let their 8th grade kids jetset between the coasts on a whim?
In which Dawn goes to OMGCALIFORNIA for good to start the California Diaries series. She becomes slightly cool for that. Still, STFU, Dawn.
I really hated that Dawn left :(
