The Babysitters Club (new) #0: The Summer Before

Before there was the Babysitters Club, there were four girls: Kristy, Mary Anne, Claudia and Stacey. As they start the summer before seventh grade, each of them is on the cusp of a big change. Kristy is still hung up on hoping that her father will come home. Mary Anne has to prove to her dad that she’s no longer a little girl. Claudia is navigating her first major crush, and Stacey is leaving her entire New York City life behind. Together, the four create a friendship that grows into a very special club, sharing crushes, family secrets, and good times and bad ones alike… Find out how it all began in this fantastic prequel to the Babysitters Club books, from a series that has sold over 176 million copies!

  • This is an amazing prequel to the Babysitters Club series. The book looked very predictable, it looked a bit young for me..but it felt like the book was made for me! It makes your emotions change really quickly, one minute you’re sad, the next you’re really happy. This was a wowza book, just fabulous! I would recommend this book to girls aged 10 – 13. It’s one of those cosy up down on the sofa with hot chocolate kind of books!
