" While I enjoyed the first book much more than this one, I really enjoyed this story. These books are a lot of fun and I absolutely adore the artwork. I will definitely be continuing on soon very soon! " said.

" This is one of my first graphic novel reads. This is the 2015 rerelease, and I really liked it. I was obsessed with the BSC ehen I was a kid, so it was neat to experience it in a new way. I don't know if I would have enjoyed it as much without reading the original. " said.

" 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!
" said.

"Perhaps unsurprisingly this book continues what is a great adaption of a rather timeless series. While I was a bit concerned by the lack of modern issues tackled in the first book, I have since read Drama by Raina Telgemeier and published by Scholastic, which was for a similar age group but completely original.

Since Scholastic and Telgemeier are obviously not afraid of tackling the more "modern" issues that children are facing, I'm much more comfortable with this book - which is an adaption of a much older book. Children are still - no doubt - dealing with issues of stigma and fear/ignorance when it comes to medical issues.

Otherwise, even if I'm not the book's target audience I really enjoyed this book as a fun light read. A great adaption overall and something I would not hesitate to recommend.
" said.

"Until I was about twenty-seven, I was absolutely terrified I would wet the bed. Now, I have never, ever wet the bed as an adult or a child, but I figured if I ever accidentally wet the bed, I was going to end up with diabetes (or at least a lot of blood work to find out I didn't have it) so basically I trained my bladder to awaken me upon the slightest hint, which means up until I forced myself out of this habit, I was getting up every night about five and six times for next to nothing.

Once I was explaining this bizarre phenomenon to a friend of mine. She laughed and laughed and said, "That happened after you read the Truth About Stacey, right??"

Thanks, Stacey McGill. Thanks a lot.

(The graphic novel retelling is really charming. I think some material was ganked from a book I've never heard of that was a portrait of Stacey, but it figured in nicely to some flashback scenes. Nicely done, Raina Telgemeier.)
