i had forgotten that this is totally one of my all-time favorite babysitters club books! i had forgotten due to the fact that the story is ridiculous & kind of icky. but peter lerangis worked magic with a premise that could have gone very bad.

so, we all know that stacey's main character trait, aside from being a sophisticated new yorker & having diabetes, is that she loves math. this book opens with stacey sitting in match class. she is having trouble concentrating because spring has onc

Stacey's got it bad, got it bad, got it bad. She's hot for teacher.

Stacey crushes hard for a Tom Cruise lookalike student math teacher, "Call Me Wes" Ellenburg; she takes his favor in class and his palling around with her and accepting her help with his filing as interest, and in a physically excruciating escalation, writes him a poem. Wes sort of ignores it, which gets Stacey’s hopes up even more, until he crushes them at the Spring Dance telling her outright that it’s never going to happen.

When does Stacey NOT have a crush on someone? And it's always an older someone. This girl needs to check her hormones at the door.

This girl named Stacey who has a crush on her teacher!I learned that it's not a good idea to like your teacher,or older people because they are more mature than you and they have more experiences and it will really hurt you at the end!

Sorry, just not believable. Getting a crush on a teacher? Sure. It's never happened to me, but I can see it happening. Actually acting on that crush at age 13? Uhm, no.

didn't like these books much.

This story was pretty good but with a sad ending. I felt very sad for Stacey after she got rejected by Wes. Poor girl

I reread this while I was at my Grandma's house, sorting through some of my childhood books I store in a spare cupboard of hers, and I'm so glad I did. The BSC books are all kind of ridiculous in a really nice, silly way, and this was absolutely no exception - it was such a fun reminder of why I loved them so much as a kid. Stacey fancies her maths teacher and the girls have to look after a baby goat?! What's not to love!

I'll definitely be picking up BSC again in the future, just cos n
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
This one is bittersweet, it is. On the one hand it's one of the more hysterically funny (and this is deliberate, as best I can tell!) installments of the BSC; on the other, all aboard the SS Heartbreak! Stacey is much more endearing here than in, say, Stacey's Lie, and anyone who's ever been an obsessive creepwad will relate to her cognitive processes.

Is it pretentious to write "cognitive processes" when reviewing a BSC book?

Oh, well. Just don’t call me late for dinner.
In which delusional Stacey thinks she has a chance with a student teacher. Yeah, it's kinda creepy that Stace is lusting after her teacher, but I love her, so back off. Also, cover!Wes is pretty hot.

i like this book because it talks about how a girl really likes her substitute teacher.that reminds me of me because in 5th grade i used to like my basketball coach.

Stacey = hot for teacher. Hilarity ensues. Also, to change things up, they all had to sit for a baby goat, which honestly made me kind of jealous.
This whole series is great for girls between 11-15 years old. I read every last one of them as I was growing up.
It was okay. It was funny, but nothing really too iteresting happened.
this is clearly a May-December crush kind of book it was interesting
Yeah, they're thirteen. This one was particularly dreadful!
