While babysitting for the Kuhn children, Mary Anne notices that the oldest child, Jake, has really been missing his father. After his parents divorced, Jake has never really had any man-figure to look up to. In an attempt to help Jake, Mary Anne invites Logan, her boyfriend, over to play ball with Jake. All is well until Mrs. Kuhn comes home and finds Logan there. Thinking only the worst, Mrs. Kuhn accuses Mary Anne of being irresponsible. Mary Anne only meant to do the right thing but all Mrs. Kuhn and the BSC girls can see is that Mary Anne broke an important BSC rule. Now because of Mary Anne’s mistake, the BSC might be out of business! This book was SUPER good. It taught the importance of always telling the truth, even when you think someone wouldn’t like it. Also, the admirable virtues of Mary Anne are very apparent in this book. The reader can tell her heart to help people, even if it will get her in trouble. Also, her kindness is very admirable as well. Overall, I thought this book was excellent and would suggest if you like baby-sitting and friendship, Happy reading!
