Claudia and the Middle School Mystery (The Baby-Sitters Club #40)
But then, Claudia's math teacher calls her to his desk and accuses her of copying off of Shawna Riverson's test!
Claudia can't believe it. Neither can the Baby-sitters. Claudia would never cheat! And they're not going to rest until they help...more
I enjoyed seeing Claudia as someone who needs to work hard to get good grades, rather than someone who is genuinely stupid. Sometimes her struggles with school make her c ...more
