SOFIA CARSONSofia Carson Answers Our Would You Rather Questions

In the Disney TV movie Adventures in Babysitting, goody two-shoes Jenny (played by Sabrina Carpenter from Girl Meets World) and artsy rebel Lola (played by Sofia Carson from Descendants) accidentally swap phones. As a result of the swap, Lola ends up babysitting for one of Jenny’s clients and getting into BIG trouble. The night turns into a chaotic adventure as Jenny and Lola hunt for one of the kids who snuck away.

Watch my video with Sofia Carson as she answers my Would You Rather questions. Would you rather . . .

Summer Social Goals

Happy summer, everyone! As far as I am concerned, the best thing about summer is all the free, unlimited READING TIME! After a long school year of assignments and homework, it is finally time to read whatever you want for as long as you want, but sometimes summer can feel a bit . . . unsocial since you don’t see always your friends every day. How can you celebrate the joys of unlimited reading time and still be social? Join the Message Boards in June for your summer social goals!

Here are a few challenges to get you started meeting new online friends, chatting, and supporting your fellow readers! Choose one or choose them all and go get social!

Tell us your June social goals in the Comments. Then sign in to the Message Boards and start being social!
