What adventures they have. Jessi lands a (tiny) part in a TV show, Kristy gets into a kind-of-fight with Dawn's We Love Kids Club, and Stacey turns into a surfer girl! And in between all that excitement, they still have time for bab...more
Needed more Jeff, though.
Kristy scorns the disorganized We ♥ Kids Club, but slightly changes her tune when Dawn’s friends prove their knowledge about the children they sit for.

Awesome books that girls will love! And the ...more
The BSC wins the lottery (of course they do) and decide to visit California for two weeks of unrealistic adventures that no 13 year olds would ever have. Oh, and Mallory acts like a huge idiot as per usual.
