A Fiction Pre-teen Book With Suspense,
A Kid's Review
This review is from: Claudia and the Phantom Phone Calls (The Baby-Sitters Club, No. 2) (Paperback)
This is a really fun book I read over and over again. It's about a girl named Claudia Kishi who constantly receives weird phone calls on baby sitting jobs, where nobody answers. She had heard about a jewel thief nicknamed the Phantom Caller, who would call people who have a large amount of valuable jewelry, and when nobody answered, he would go to their house and rob them of their important jewelry. She was scared it was him, and also found out that her other friend from the babysitters club named Kristy Thomas was getting the weird phone calls, too. Later, their neighbors the Goldmans are robbed, but then they find out that it was only an imitation robbery. However, the babysitters club is still in a crisis. Mary Anne Spier is even banned from babysitting until the Phantom Caller was caught. Towards the end of the story, Kristy's Phantom Caller is actually a boy named Alan Gray that secretly liked her, and Claudia's was a boy she had been crushing on named Trevor Sandbourne. At the end of the story, the jewel thief is behind bars and Mary Anne can baby sit once again. My favorite part was at the end when everything was solved. I would recommend this story to pre-teens who enjoy a good mystery story that isn't too scary and that they can relate to.
