The hit series is back, to charm and inspire another generation of baby-sitters! Claudia has always been the most outrageous girl in her class . . . until Ashley Wyeth comes along. Ashley's really different — she dresses in hippie clothes, wears six earrings and work boots, and is the most fantastic artist Claudia has ever met. Ashley says Claudia has artistic talent, too, but thinks Claudia should spend more time on her "calling" and stop wasting time on the Baby-sitters Club. The Baby-sitters are sick of Ashley Wyeth, and they feel like Claudia is a traitor. Claudia has to decide: either the BSC or the new girl — one of them's got to go! The best friends you'll ever have — with classic BSC covers and a letter from Ann M. Martin!
