Before there were actual BSC Mysteries, there was the original - Claudia and the Phantom Phone Calls. Are the girls being stalked by the actual Phantom Caller (who wants to steal… their hair ribbons…)? Or is there something else to this mystery? Kate and Lauryn’s Great Ideas touch on growing pains related to varying levels of maturity, sibling rivalry, what it means to be “smart,” imagination, and the ability of pre-teen girls to escalate to dramatics quickly. Lauryn can’t wait to discuss a certain Core Four member’s sexuality as she continues to explore her own, and Kate breaks down the ins and outs of IQs.

Claudia-Specific: Claudia has a crush on Trevor Sandbourne, a poet in her class, and wants to go to the Halloween dance with him. She doesn’t think he knows her, but she continues to pine throughout the book. Claudia and Kristy both get hang up phone calls at multiple babysitting jobs and eventually catch Alan Gray in the act! He’d been looking at the club appointment book and noting where they were both babysitting so he and Trevor Sandbourne could call them to ask them to the Halloween dance. Despite Kristy hating Alan, she goes with him, and they all have a great time. Except Mary Anne who stays home.
BSC Generally: There is a burglar on the loose whose MO is to call the houses to see if anyone is home and then break in later to steal their fine jewels. He’s hitting homes far from Stoneybrook, but the Core Four jumps to conclusions and thinks they’re at risk of running into him. They come up with codes and ideas for alarm systems to prevent catastrophe. There’s a copycat nextdoor to Claudia and eventually the real Phantom Caller is caught and there’s nothing else to worry about in Stoneybrook.
