" Man, BSC makes awesome graphic novel fodder. I love Telgemeier. The plot in this is actually very entertaining. I'd forgotten a lot of the details--diabetes was the only thing that stuck with me--about the BSA competition. I realize that I learned a lot about what it means to be a good caretaker from these books. Lessons!!! I could binge read these. " said.

" RATING: 3.5 STARS(Review Not on Blog) I LOVED the Baby-Sitters Club and probably read it longer than I should have, but it always felt like visiting friends. While I have never wanted to be a baby-sitter, I loved the club idea. This graphic novel was a good trip down memory lane, but I didn't like the change up. I am glad that a new generation will get into this series and only hope they move onto the originals. " said.

" The second book of the babysitters club was really good. This book is about Stacey who has diabetes and the only people she has told is her parents and the other members of the babysitters club. This book tells how Stacey got diabetes and how her life was back in New York city when she just got diabetes. I recommend this book to people who have read the first book of the babysitters club. And also to people who like Raina Telgemeier . " said.

"I don't like the overhead light in my room. It's so bright, and I much prefer the softer, yellower light of my desk lamp. That said, I couldn't read this by desk lamp. I needed as much light as I could, to take in all the beautiful colours of this book.

I haven't written a review of the original release of the book, so it's worth mentioning how much I love that Raina Telgemeier incorporated parts of Stacey's Book into the story to give more back-story and to flesh it out. The flashbacks (with the black borders, to differentiate them from the current story) are a nice touch, too.

Love these books, love these adaptations, and love how nice they look in full colour. A delight to read!

"I would really like to know if this is supposed to be a modernized-version of the baby-sitters club. The book itself never mentions what year it is, but I know the original series by Anne M. Martin was written in the eighties. Anyway, I say this because of Stacey's type-one diabetes.
As a teenage type-one myself, it is crucial for me that Stacey's diabetes is accurate. She is one of the only fictional diabetic characters in literature, and so I was really hoping to be able to identify with her. The case is, that was really not what happened.
True, some of the disease was correctly displayed, but not enough to make it believable.
First off, don't go crying because type-one diabetics can't eat junk foods. We can! We're not all on diets, unless we want to lose weight like other people! Just today I ate chicken tenders and french fries. So that was not shown correctly. In reality, Stacey could have eaten that pizza at the pizza party. She could have gotten some candy at the candy store (just saved it for later to figure out the carbs).
Anyway, at least it got some of the stuff right, and overall it was a good read. Just not accurate. Still I appreciate both Anne M. Martin and Raina Telgemeier to at least attempt to bring diabetes to fiction.

"i think this book is really good, because its a life of diabetes. she had two jobs to do, baby sit kids, and handle her diabetes. when she was handleing her diabetes, she was very brave. for example, at the end when she went to a doctors office, she had to take a big shot, she had to run on treadmill and a few other things. while she was at her other doctor, she didn;t want to go to any more doctors, so she doesn't have to take shots again at the doctors, or even go to the doctors. I think that stacey is brace and she could do anything she dreams of. " said.

"I picked up a copy of this book because the Baby-Sitters Club series was my first book fandom when I was a kid (I even wrote a letter to Ann M. Martin and received one back from her!), and I was curious to see how Raina Telgemeier would shape the book into a graphic novel. The graphic novel style really updates this series for a new generation of kids.

Oh, and much love to Martin for having an Asian American main character in these series. When I was growing up, characters who looked like me (or frankly, who wasn't white) were few and far between. Claudia Kishi was important to me because she wasn't any of the stereotypes floating around- she wasn't studious, she wasn't good at math, she was artsy and had her own sense of style.
" said.

" It's good, entertaining, but nothing to write home about. " said.
