13436373Few things fuel middle school life-like the drama of interpersonal relationships. Who likes who? Who like likes who? What does it mean to like somebody? What does it mean if you don’t? Is friendship more important than romance? Despite what parents might want, many kids start dealing with this stuff in middle school, and Telgemeier has captured that dissonance perfectly. In this well-balanced graphic novel, the author uses a cartoon style and light humor to offset the heavier issues raised in the story.

What struck me most about this book is how real and relatable the characters feel, especially the central Callie. It is all too easy to make middle school (and high school, for that matter) characters seem maudlin and over-dramatic. Part of this, of course, is because that’s exactly what so many of them are in real life. That rarely translates well on the page, though. Telgemeier uses a crisp pace to keep Callie from wallowing in self-reflection, even as she visibly struggles to process feelings about several of her classmates. The danger with such a strategy is that the story will become too light and avoid a real emotional experience in the characters. Telgemeier, however, poignantly times both her dialogue and art so that the characters have moments of tangible depth which keep the novel anchored. Callie and her drama crew friends are able to grow without the author belaboring the point and losing momentum.

Raina Telgemeier is a national treasure. This is a perfect graphic novel. There wasn't a line or word out of place, and the story is pitch perfect in its handling of tough issues.

{My thoughts} – The Baby-Sitters Club gets more then they bargain for when they all end up mad at one another. Mary Anne keeps trying to make peace by writing apology letters but no one seems to take them seriously. They end up running the club in a poor way, it’s extremely unorganized, and no one is really speaking to one another. It is almost like they are constantly trying to sabotage one another.

Mary Anne ends up making friends with the new kid in school. Her name is Dawn and they get along well. It comes out eventually that she’d made friends with her to make the members of the Baby-Sitting Club jealous, but in the end that doesn’t really matter.

The entire Baby-Sitters Club eventually makes up with one another. They become friends again and find a way to work through the things that had upset them to begin with. Best of all they invite Dawn to be a member. I think that’s pretty neat, because she’d helped Mary Anne with a baby-sitting job and everything turned out really well, even though Mary Anne was struggling with the desire to panic the entire time.

This was a nice addition to the storyline and it helps the readers get to know Mary Anne a lot more. It also introduces us to Dawn a new member of the Club! I look forward to reading the next book in the series soon!
