5.0 out of 5 stars an absaloutly groovy read which you have to buy 27 Mar. 2000
By A Customer
even though I had the AMERICAN copy I thought it was really good.It's not all about the actual babysitters club it just states it.What happens is that sophisticated stacey an ex new yorker gets thrown out of the club for not being punctual.So Stacey gets tracked down by some girls who go with nice innocent Stacey shoplifting(Stacey dosn't).This book is a really good guide for who to pick for your mates.And behind that there is a really helpful lesson.

4.0 out of 5 stars ann touched on something that happens in real life 9 Aug. 2005
A Kid's Review - Published on
it is very easy to choose friends and not realize they are using you or have an agenda, especially at a young, vulnerable age like stacey. Since stacey is not in the BSC at this point and misses baby sitting, she gets a job at the department store kids centre and enjoys it so much. But then her friends and her go to a concert and they snuck in alcohol and stacey was so shocked and couldn't believe it and I really felt for her after that whole fiasco and her mom was so understanding although she got grounded, thuogh I thought of it as more of a time to reflect on herself than a grounding. At the end she joins the BSC again cause she realizes that's where her heart is and she is so much better than the friends she was hanging out with and finds herself again :)

3.0 out of 5 stars Mixed Feelings... 4 Oct. 2003
By Catwoman - Published on
Like many of the other reviewers I was probably about 11/12 when I got hooked on the BSC and I *loved* the early books, especially The Truth About Stacey, and many others.
However, I'm not sure I liked the direction that the newer books have taken.
Okay, sure every book series updated for the nineties/noughties and different issues were brought into books in order to deal with the changes in society, etc. After all, the books weren't just about the hilarious escapades of the kids they were sitting for but, I just don't think that the BSC series adapted well.
I admit that this book is the first BSC book I have read in a long time so, I've probably jumped from reading number 30/40 to 87!
Anyways, to get to the point, Stacey didn't seem like that same Stacey in the earlier books, I didn't like her as much in this one. Also, Dawn seemed quite nasty (from what Stacey wrote about her) and at times the characters seemed one-dimensional.
I agree that people change - sometimes not for the better but - one great thing was that Stacey joined the BSC again at the end.
It's a shame she didn't get a chance to tell her loser ex-friends (the ones who used her) exactly what she thought of them!

2.0 out of 5 stars Rather Disappointing 13 Mar. 2000
By Claudine - Published on
I was always an avid fan of the Babysitter's Club, but right about when Stacey left, good books became harder to find. Instead of thoughtful, well developed characters, they became rather mindless and boring. The characters would change personalities in an instant or their bad personality traits would be accented to fit within a certain plot line. The plots themselves became trite. I could pick up a book in the store, read the back, and not have to bother purchasing it. I have basically stopped reading the books, of course I have gotten too old for them. However, I am bothered to see that my childhood favorite has dwindled off into this :-(

3.0 out of 5 stars A different Stacey 28 Jan. 2003
By Amazon Customer - Published on
I was 10 when the BSC was first created so I grew up with the series and adored the characters. I was Stacey. She was my favorite character, and we looked a lot alike. The first early books about her were wonderful, but in this book this has got to be a different Stacey. She isn't the same. She is out of sorts. The book is well written but the reason I gave it only 3 stars was because it's not as good as the original books about Stacey and the gang.
In this book Stacey makes poor choices and has some lousy friends who use her and she's an airhead about it. She is so naive when they are using her; she thinks they're still innocent. I'm glad Mrs. McGill disciplines Stacey and lectures her about wising up to these loser girls.
It's a shame that this series had to change so much; they were wonderful in the beginning. It's not a bad book, and a good read, just kind of cheesy at times.

5.0 out of 5 stars Welcome back, Stacey!!! 4 Feb. 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Boy, was I glad when Stacey realized who her true friends were and came back to the BSC. It wasn't the same without her. I knew the BSC would welcome her back with open arms. It's good to see her back with her true friends.
