Dawn Shaffer is the newest member of the babysitting club. She wants to prove herself to her friends—Christy, Claudia, Stacey, and Mary Ann—and is happy to take on her first significant job. But taking care of the Barrett family's three children turns out to be a big challenge even for an experienced babysitter: the house is always messy, the children run wild without stopping, and their mother is busy all the time. Dawn musters all her strength to succeed in the mission, but when one of Bart's children goes missing, things seem to spiral out of control. Dawn needs the help of her friends, but what's going on with club president Christy? Why is she so distant and cold? The Babysitting Club series by Ann M. Martin is one of the most successful in the world. More than 176 million copies of the books in the series were printed and inspired an entire generation of readers. Rayna Telgemeier (creator of Smile, Sisters, and more) turned it into a comic book series, and Gail Galligan, a comic creator in her own right, safely leads the fifth book in the series.
