This is one of the Baby-Sitters Club's most poignant tales. Kristy struggles with a feeling of isolation in her new neighborhood, surrounded by prep-school snobs who tease her for her appearance. Grief and loss, in the end, lead towards a fresh start for the baby-sitter and her family.
This is definitely one of the saddest Baby-Sitters Club books. Ann M. Martin - in one of the early, not-ghostwritten books - handles Kristy's collie Louie's death with beautiful, heart-wrenching grace.
kristy's mom got married again last summer and now kristy and her family live in a new neighborhood.the kids there aren't very friendly.in fact they're well...snobs they criticize kristy'd clothes,they make fun of the baby-sitters club and worst of all they laugh at louie kristy's pet collie who's going blind.nobody does that and gets away with it.
