{Boy-Crazy Stacey: Gale Galligan, Ann M. Martin}

{Synopsis} – Stacey and Mary Anne are baby-sitting for the Pike family for two weeks at the New Jersey shore. Things are great in Sea City: There’s a gorgeous house right on the beach, a boardwalk, plenty of sun and sand… and the cutest boy Stacey has ever seen!

Mary Anne thinks that Stacey should leave Scott alone and focus on the Pike kids, but Stacey’s in love. Looking for reasons to hang around his lifeguard stand takes up all of her time, which means Mary Anne has to do the job of two baby-sitters. Mary Anne doesn’t like it one bit! How can she tell Stacey that Scott just isn’t interested without ruining their friendship and breaking Stacey’s heart?

{My thoughts} – Stacey and May Anne get to go on a two week trip to the beach with Mallory’s family. They are going along to help take care of the younger children so that Mallory isn’t the only older child of baby-sitting age there.

While they are on their trip they send postcards to other members of the baby-sitters club as a means of keeping in touch. They also get into a few disagreements over boys. Did I mention boys? They both meet a couple as well and seem to hit off alright, although they aren’t both happy for each other in a sense.

I really enjoyed reading this book. It helps to show that even when you have plans and you know what you are meant to do, that things don’t always work out that way. It shows that sometimes, things aren’t what they seem, and sometimes they are. It also shows, that when you make a commitment to do something you should really stick with it and not try and find a way out of it.

All and all this was a fun read and I look forward to reading more books by both authors in the future!

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
