Ever since Dawn's parents got divorced, Dawn has never felt like she has belonged anywhere. Yes, she had amazing friends in Stoneybrook and of course, the BSC. But she also misses the warm beaches of California, and most of all, she misses her dad and brother. So, when Dawn proposes that she wants to go back to California for 6 months, she begins to have second thoughts. Dawn feels torn; how could she leave her friends in Stoneybrook but also see her father and brother all the way in California? This book was very funny, enjoyable to read, and a little sad. From the first chapter, the reader can identify Dawn's longing for California. The book was very well written. If the author had not done a great job, the reader may have thought Dawn didn't like her friends or her mom. But Ann M. Martin paints Dawn as normal girl who only wants to be with her family. The end of the book was bittersweet. I walked away from the book feeling sad, surprised, and expectant for the next book. The reader will definitely be surprised by the ending. I suggest if you like reading about family drama, friendship, and babysitting. Happy reading!

I loved this book! Dawn likes her life in Stoneybrook, she has friends, babysitting charges, and a fun family. But lately Dawn has been really missing her dad and brother in California. So Dawn makes a huge decision. She is going to move back to California for 6 months. Of course, everyone is shocked and Dawn still has to tell Mary Anne, her friend AND stepsister. What is the bsc going to do without her? I give this book 5 stars.
