The Baby-Sitters Club: The Summer Before. By Ann M. Martin
Like many of Ann M. Martin's other novels, her latest installment of The Baby-Sitters Club delves into the lives of four 12 and 13 year old girls. The trials and tribulations of the average teenage girl are accurately described and allow the reader to truly connect to the characters. The Summer Before focuses on the summer before the start of the baby-sitters club. The lives of these four girls are changing and they struggle to adjust to their ever cnaging worlds. The novel is engaging and fun to read, perfect for a girl of any age. The characters are easy to relat to and all four are completely different. I would recommend this book to both fans of the baby-sitters club, as well as to people who have never read them before.
