Bart and Kristy are good friends. The big news in Kristy's neighborhood is that the Papadakis family is getting a foster child

The members of the Baby-sitters Club have been in eighth grade for over fifteen years now. It's time for them to graduate into high school - with all the reflection, expectation, sorrow, and joy that such a big life change brings. This is the stunning, heartfelt conclusion to America's best-loved series. Bart and Kristy are good friends. They go to dances or to the movies sometimes, but they're not really boyfriend and girlfriend. The big news in Kristy's neighborhood is that the Papadakis family is getting a foster child. The Baby-sitters think taking in a troubled child is a really special thing to do. Kristy's sure the new kid will fit right in.

The Baby-Sitters Club (also known as BSC) is a series of novels written by Ann M. Martin and published by Scholastic between 1986 and 2000, that sold 176 million copies. Martin wrote the first 35 novels in the series, but the subsequent novels were written by ghostwriters, such as Peter Lerangis. The Baby-Sitters Club is about a group of friends who live in the fictional, suburban town of Stoneybrook, Connecticut. These friends run a local babysitting service called "The Baby-Sitters Club"

I've been reread the BSC books since I loved them as a kid, and came across this book, which I had never read. I wasn't very impressed. I didn't like the way Elizabeth and Kristy manipulated Charlie, I thought Patrick was a complete d-bag, and Sam made me sad, he was so desperate for love and acceptance. The only realistic character was Charlie, and for some reason he was described as spoiled and mean, when in reality he was tge inly honest, believable character. Patrick was a complete sleaze who never had any contact with his children, but as soon as he calls everyone jumps to attention. And what kind of person is Zoey, to marry such a creep? I really didn't like this book.

To begin with, I love this series better than "The Baby-sitters' Club". "Friends Forever" has a good focus on what teens have to incounter day by day. (As does "California Diaries") The BSC series had to big a focus on baby-sitting, as if that was all they ever did. The plots were becoming unrealistic. I got a surprise when I picked up Friends Forever #1 and read it. For one thing, baby-sitting was not mentioned at all. For another you had to interprate what the chariters were like instead of getting a full profile on them like you did in the beginning of every BSC book. "Friends Forever" seems better for teens. You see a side of Kristy you've never seen before such as taken a care to her apperence. I'm sure you'll see shocking sides to the other chariters as well. All in all, this series looks promesing, and I'll certainly buy more of the books.

This new series "Friends Forever" seems so much better for teens. "The Baby-sitters' Club" was more or less for the pre-teen era. So far I love the direction Ann M. Martin is going in. "Friends Forever" seems very true to life, realistic, and touching.
In the BSC, all you saw was everyone in their perfect little lives. The books became surreal and distorted into endings that would only happen on half hour sitcoms.
In "Friends Forever", you see the teens finally facing real problems in life. (And it also doesn't go in the other direction either. It isn't so dark and moody that the books don't focus on happy moments in a teenager's life. It doesn't get too cheerful that it would make you sick, and it isn't so upseting it would make you feel blue. It's just right!)
I say, congrats to Ann for a job well done by making the "BSC" teens over into "Friends Forever" you highly earn it!

This book wasn't quite as good as I expected. Out of the blue, Kristy's father calls and invites her, Sam, and Charlie to his wedding. He is marrying a woman named Zoey, and lives in California. Charlie doesn't want to go, but Kristy and Sam convince him to come. It was kind of cool to see a different side of Kristy. She willingly went dress shopping with Zoey! I think Kristy is starting to see that it's o.k. to dress up once in awhile and take some extra care with her appearance. I doubt that she will start acting girly and wearing pink, though. I liked the different angle of the book. No babysitting was mentioned, which was kind of surprising. The next two books are #2, Stacey Vs. Claudia, and # 3, Mary Anne's Big Breakup. It sound like Logan and Mary Anne are almost finished. I'll have to stay tuned.

Kristy's Big News was terrific! It was good to see that the teens had depth and feelings in this book.
In the BSC series, the chariters lacked A LOT of depth, and the only emotion they showed was happyness. The plots were unrealistic.
In Friends Forever #1, you see Kristy go through a very confusing time. My heart went out to her as she seemed to struggle with the fact that her dad was not a responsible person and to let go of her feelings towards him as a fatherly figure.
I flew through this book, eger to see what would happen next. I enjoyied reading about the wedding, and I greatly enjoyied the fact that baby-sitting was not mentioned nor were the other chariters.
Keep this up Ann M. Martin! Thanks for making these plots real!

My friend gave me this book to borrow. I couldn't put it down! I was starting to get tired of the BSC, and I read California Diaries more often, but when my friend handed me this she said: "Read this you'll be shocked." I certainlly was!
In Kristy's Big News (#1) Kristy's father is getting married. It's a wedding she never forgets because her dad pratically walked out on his family when Kristy was six. Poor Kristy! It must have been a very confusing and scary time to be at her father's house.
Great job Ann! The tenson between the family was VERY realistic as was everything else. Keep this up! You'll get a lot of readers!

This book (and #2 as well) is as real as the CD books! I honestly was shocked! I was a former BSC fan, but outgrew the books and was looking for something more mature. I've read California Diaries since they arrived in bookstores in 1997, but I have to admit, I missed reading about the BSC members and was wishfully thinking that there would be a mature series on them.
I got my wish! "Friends Forever" hardly foucuses on baby-sitting at all. Instead this book was about remeeting Kristy's long lost father. It shows that the chariters have grown up and are dealing with real life! I enjoyed Friends Forever #1 very much! Keep up the good work Ann M. Martin!
Okay first off, I HATED the Baby-sitters' Club books. I USED to like them, but over time all the plots seemed to be the same!
I loved Friends Forever #1 however. "Kristy's Big News" was refreshing, touching, and most of all NOT boring! You see the teens in a whole new light! It seems as if everything isn't as perfect as it once was in their lives. Friends Forever seems realistic and enjoyible! I hope Ann M. Martin will keep this up! I can't wait to read Stacey vs. Claudia (#2)!
