A whole lot of NOPE going on...

I am on a quest to revisit my childhood reading favorites. When I was a child, I loved the Babysitters Club books. I devoured them. I read those, along with the Super Specials, Mysteries, Little Sister books, etc. In fact, I still have all of them to this day in paperback. They were such a big part of my love of reading, I could not part with them. So now that they have come out on Audiobook, I had to check them out. As it turns out, I am not too old to enjoy The Baby-sitters Club. It kind of feels like going home again.

Boy-Crazy Stacey is book 8 in the Baby-sitters Club series. In this book, Stacey and Mary Anne go on vacation with the Pike family to act as Mother's Helpers for the 8 Pike children, all aged 10 and under.I think this may be one of the BSC books where I am too old to suspend reality and or get out of my adult mindset and just enjoy the story. I wish I remembered how I felt reading this when I was a child, because listening to it now, I was just nope nope noping all over the place. This book was too ridiculous and so incredibly dangerous. Two 13 year old girls were left in charge of 8 other children AT THE BEACH and sat on the beach while they played IN THE OCEAN, the youngest child being 5 years old. Speaking of said child, if I had to hear "silly billy goo goo" one more time in the narrators baby voice, I would have started twitching. So anyway, two 13 year old girls was really just one 13 year old girl because while Mary Anne took care of all 8 of the Pike kids, Stacey spent her days preoccupied with the 18 year old lifeguard who had a gaggle of young girls hanging on his every word and doing them favors. This 18 year old was also referring to Stacey and other young girls as beautiful, love, babe, and other pet names. He was out and out FLIRTING with a 13 year old girl and other young girls that age while he is supposed to be life-guarding. Yeah, this book was a bit of a cluster overall. I just can't see how that can be rationalized and seen as okay, even in the 80s when it was written.

This book is a quick listen and is only 2 hours and 53 minutes. The first 5 books all had the same narrator. Book 6 had a different narrator, 7 had a different narrator, and now this book has a different narrator. This narrator was okay. I didn't have any major concerns and I would listen to another of these books with her as the narrator. Her little girl voice was certainly...something.

My love for these books and the nostalgia is holding strong. I am ready to listen to book 9!

Not my favorite of the bunch.

This story was not a favorite. While it is totally plausible that Stacey would have a crush on the older lifeguard, it's just so silly that she fell in love and didn't see through him.

If I remember correctly there are other Stacey stories I liked more.

Sadly, I am not a fan of the narrator. I found her to be - whiny.
Also, maybe they should have gotten a born and bred New Yorker to play Stacey.

Poor Stacey.

So much for a vacation. LOL on the subplot with Karen and Andrew trying to wash their dad's car. Erin did a great job with narration.

Silly Billy Goo Goo - NO!

Like all of the Babysitters Club books, listening to these made me nalstalgic for my childhood days. Absolutely love them. The silly billy goo goo though in this book was a bit much for me so I had to take off a star. I thought my ears would explode if I had to hear that one more time! Other than that, like all the other books, these are great reads.
