The California Diaries series followed Dawn Schafer after she returned to California permanently (BSC #88). Dawn, her childhood friends Maggie and Sunny are moved into a new school and are introduced to a new group of friends. The California Diaries series was meant to be slightly more mature than the BSC series and focused on real-life issues such as abuse, eating disorders and suicide.
BSC: Friends Forever was the last BSC series. After The Fire At Mary Anne's House (BSC #131) the girls decide to focus less on babysitting and the club drifts apart.
BSC Graphic novels written and illustrated by Raina Telgemeier.
