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?

Excellent performance, but sometimes the story became a bit boring

I absolutely love the Babysitters Club books, so I was really excited to hear it on Audible. The only small disappointment was that the book sometimes got long, and I found myself multi tasking, and getting sidetracked. The performance was outstanding, though. Overall I would recommend this series to ages between 7~12.

The best book I ever red she feels so alive and beautiful and the best member of the baby sister club

This is the best babysitter club book I like how she’s the only one with diabetes and she hid it but then she felt comfortable with telling her friends in the first book and how in this book she makes friends with lane again she just seems mature and grown-up super good babysitter, beautiful, kind, and very supportive of her friends, even though she needs support as well.
