The Baby-sitters Club #2: Claudia and the Phantom Phone Calls

The Baby-sitters Club #2: Claudia and the Phantom Caller by Ann M. Martin -

from back of book:
Kristy, Claudia, Mary Anne, and Stacey have had some strange adventures since they started the Baby-sitters Club. But nothing's been as spooky as what's going on right now. The baby-sitters have been getting mysterious phone calls whn they're out on their jobs. When a phone rings and they pick up, there's no one on the other end of the line.
Claudia's sure it's the Phantom Caller, a jewel thief who's been operating in the area. cluadia has always liked reading mysteries, but she sheoesn't like it when they happen to her. So she and the baby-sitters decide to take action-with some very mixed results!

my review:
This story revolves around Claudia Kishi. She is a smart pre-teen girl in the seventh grade. She loves art and have an...unique sense of style. The baby-sitters include Claudia, Stacey McGill, Kristy Thomas, and Mary Anne Spier. The story is about a jewel theif who calls the household (presumelying to make sure no one is home) before breaking in. The girls get paranoid as two of them get calls where the caller never says anything. And the other two are just spooked from the thought of the caller. The side story is about Claudia and her crush on a boy named Trevor Sandbourne. (YA)tbr list #3 it's a fun quick story but if you been waiting to read other books did it count definite wait

    I found this follow-up much weaker than the first book, if only because it just didn't deliver on the scares. =/ It didn't help that Claudia is the baby-sitter I find it hardest to relate to.

    But I laughed out loud while reading the chapter in which Mary Anne sets the booby traps. She was my favourite baby-sitter in this book! =)
