A girl on RiSi sent me this book as a surprise as she knew that I used to love these books - how kind! A fun read, although I can tell now as an adult that these later books were ghostwritten. Stacey's voice is very different from that of her first book.

Charlotte Johanssen’s parents leave town for a few days to look after her sick grandfather, leaving Charlotte to stay with Stacey’s family. An old, reputedly haunted house is getting torn down, and Stacey and Charlotte keep seeing and hearing weird things at the house: random flames; a swarm of bees; a face in the window. Charlotte gets sick, and for some low-key entertainment, she and Stacey do research, trying to find out the history of the house. Stacey visits the house’s former owner in a nu ...more
This story had a lot of unresolved creepy stuff in it. The main plot is that an old house is getting torn down and everyone thinks it might be haunted. Stacey has one of her sitting charges staying with her for like a week, and they're both flipped out by the house and have nightmares about it after walking by it and seeing mysterious things. So they start investigating and . . . yep, they did it. They found out that the area used to be a burial ground. Come on. So they research the owner of the ...more
This one was alright, not great, didn't seem to have much purpose. (Not that any of them do, I suppose.) Anyway, we open with Stacey coming home from a "fabulous" weekend in NYC with her dad. Quote marks because it actually kind of sucked. Her dad works most of the weekend and hounds her about her diabetes when they go out to eat. But she gets to go shopping so she can look tres sophisticated in po-dunk Stoneybrook.

There's an old house in Stoneybrook and it's going to be torn down, and Stacey has a weird feeling about it. She and a babysitting charge of hers start having nightmares about the house and experiencing weird occurrences in association with it, so they do some research, which leads them to an old man in a nursing home who may have the only real story about the house's history. Who knows if they can trust what he says, though. . . .

Most of the time I have been irritated by these books' clearly c

Another unresolved ending, another nostalgic trip back to my formerly favorite, and currently almost least favorite, series.
This was an ok book. I din't really like the ghost and stuff parts but it was ok besides that. I'm not a big fan of scary weird things like that......
Fantastic books for young girls getting into reading!! Great stories about friendship and life lessons. The characters deal with all sorts of situations and often find responsible solutions to problems.

I loved this series growing up and wanted to start my own babysitting business with friends. Great lessons in entrepreneurship for tweens.

The books may be dated with out references to modern technology but the story stands and lessons are still relevant.

Awesome books that girls will love! And the
A Stacey story I enjoyed? Shock horror!
One of the better 'mystery' themed stories.
Stacey has never liked mysteries and ghosts.But when she goes walking around the Hennesey house with Charlotte Johanssen(a girl she was babysitting), they hear creepy noises and faces in windows. Then they realised that the house was built on top of a graveyard! Does their little town of Stoneybrook have a real haunted house?
I wish I could write adequate reviews for this series, because I loved it when I read them. However, it was so long ago, and I was so young, only 10-12 years old, that I do not remember much.

Unfortunately, nothing sticks out in my memory about this particular instalment.
Another of my favorite BSC books! I liked anything that had to do with mystery/ghosts etc when I was a kid (still do!) I wish I could find these old books I had. I will have to ask my mom if perhaps they are up in her attic....

even though I'm still reading this book it is very good. i choose the book because it's a mystery but i found out there is a girl in there just like me whose pop is having heart surgery.

I loved the series as a kid. I never read them in order because the library didn't have all of them. I think my favs were the Super Specials.
Yeah, it was a Stacey book... okay so I liked those more than the Claudia ones, but they were still far from my favourites.
i was like, WTF?! me: runs away when i see the house, i mean srsly..the old man said it was haunted for God's sake!
This whole series is great for girls between 11-15 years old. I read every last one of them as I was growing up.

I love how the relationship between Stacey and Charlotte is described :)
