The hit series is back, to charm and inspire another generation of baby-sitters!

Dawn and Mary Anne are so excited! Logan's cousin Lewis is finally coming to town, and Mary Anne is busy planning the perfect double date. But now Dawn is starting to get worried. She's written letters to Lewis, but she's never had a boyfriend before. What if Lewis doesn't like her?

That's when Dawn decides she needs a new image. New clothes, new hairstyle, and maybe just a little more makeup (or a lot). Maybe she should learn how to flirt a little. But will Lewis and the rest of the Baby-sitters like the new Dawn?

The best friends you'll ever have--with classic BSC covers and a letter from Ann M. Martin!

Dawn has been writing back and forth with Logan's cousin Lewis. The two of them have become close. So, it's no surprise when Lewis decides to pay a visit to Dawn, Mary Anne, and Logan. The girls are excited for his arrival. But as Lewis' visit comes closer and closer, Dawn begins to doubt her self-image. Is her hair too long? Does she not wear enough makeup? Questions like these begin to circle around Dawn's mind. Soon Dawn decides to do a complete makeover. That means new hairstyle, new clothes, more makeup. But will Lewis and the other BSC girls like the new Dawn? I thought this book was SUPER relatable. The reader feels a special connection to Dawn. It was, at least for me, comforting. As a girl who has struggled with confidence, I was able to take advice and tips from Dawn. But it was also nice to see that I was not alone. It was encouraging to see that I was not a strange case. Dawn in this story displays admirable character but I have to say, Mary Anne was probably the most admirable. Mary Anne is supportive, kind, and understanding. She doesn't push Dawn, but she does help her find who Dawn really is. I suggest this book if you like reading about makeovers, friendship, slight romance, and babysitting. Happy reading!
