Publisher's Summary

Three decades after The Baby-Sitters Club first rocked our world—like scoring your own phone line, in your room!—the beloved franchise is back to binge (and share) like never before!

In the most exciting news since we first learned of Kristy Thomas’s great idea to start the Baby-Sitters Club, the book series is now available only from Audible as an audio experience with special guest narrator Elle Fanning, the multi-talented actress and fan of BSC.

With endearing characters and enduring storylines filled with lessons of self-discovery, the beauty of true friendship, and the power of youth-led entrepreneurship itself, the BSC has never felt more now. So, whether you’re joining the club for the first time, or the first time in quite a while, spend time with stories that transcend the ages. Gather up the kids—not to mention those nieces, nephews, and neighbors alike—for all the twists, turns, hilarity, and burns of tween life in Stoneybrook, Connecticut!

The truth about Stacey is that she has diabetes, a fact she keeps secret from everyone except her new friends in the Baby-Sitters Club. But Stacey's condition causes a lot of problems, and she has to miss a lot of BSC meetings. Can she find a solution before her new friends get sick of her disease?

The BSC has a rival

When I was a child, I loved the Babysitters Club books. I devoured them. I read those, along with the Super Specials, Mysteries, Little Sister books, etc. In fact, I still have all of them to this day in paperback. They were such a big part of my love of reading, I could not part with them. So now that they have come out on Audiobook, I had to check them out. As it turns out, I am not too old to enjoy The Baby-sitters Club. It kind of feels like going home again. The Truth About Stacey is book 3 in the Baby-sitters Club series. In this book, there are two main storylines. The first addresses Stacey and her struggles with her parents inability to accept her diabetes. They keep taking her to doctor after doctor in an attempt to find a miracle cure. The other is that there is a rival babysitting group trying to take the BSC's business. The Babysitters Agency has older kids that are allowed to babysit longer hours and late at night. The BSC start to worry as they are getting fewer calls. They really have to put their heads together to figure out how to stop from going out of business. This book is a quick listen and is only 3 hours and 7 minutes. The narrator does a good job. I still love the nostalgia and am ready to listen to book 4!

... Solid 3.5

Super cute read and I love how it's showing young kids about responsibly and diabetes and about challenges that come your way. They work things out in smart ways. Again I loved this series growing up, and getting to listen to it on audible is nostalgic.

Oh the nostalgia!!

This was very good. I like these girls and their adventures and challenges! I loved that the girls were met with a challenge to their business in this one and I enjoyed getting to know Stacey more.

A fine addition to this series

I'd imagine noot many pre-teens or teenagers knew much about diabetes until this series began. The narration is excellent. Those poor girls, played for fools, one of the kids almost freezing in the snow, and the club means a lot to Kristy, but, things turned out fine in the end. I'll listen to more of them later on for sure.

It's nice to revisit a favorite from my childhood

I loved the Babysitters Club books, tv show and movie when I was a kid, so I was really excited to see they are now on Audible. I enjoyed this book and how the author explains what it's like for Stacy living with diabetes. Its important for kids to have characters they can relate to. I also liked the book's themes of being responsible and having courage to do the right thing even when its difficult. I enjoyed Elle Fanning's performance as well. It was a nice easy listen. I can't wait to listen to the next book.

Diabetics should listen to this book.

Ella Fanning is an excellent narrator for Stacy who is dealing with Type 1 diabetes.
