Teenager Amalia Vargas finds the courage to be true to herself in this spin-off from the Newbery Award–winning author’s Baby-sitters Club series.
When you’re thirteen, having a boyfriend in a band is basically the coolest thing ever. But Amalia is starting to feel trapped by her relationship with James, who’s jealous when she spends time with anyone but him—even her family and friends. Amalia knows standing up for yourself is important, but every time she takes a step forward something else happens to make her doubt everything—including the place she calls home. Luckily, her friends are there to help her through the hard times . . .
The next chapter following Ann M. Martin’s bestselling Baby-sitters Club series, the California Diaries are the first-person journals of Dawn, Sunny, Maggie, Amalia, and Ducky—five teenagers dealing with the ups and downs of growing up.
This collection includes the complete set of Amalia’s three California Diaries.
