  • Rod Brown
    A so-so story about friendship and summer crushes during a working vacation to the Jersey Shore for two of the babysitters. Mostly, the postcards that served as chapter breaks knocked me out of the story as I thought about how a true adaptation of this story to the modern day would include cell phones and that would radically change large parts of the story as Stacey completely ignored Mary Anne in favor of constantly texting Claudia for advice a...

    Fantastic, fun, WE'RE 13, WE'RE TEENAGERS NOW drama. I enjoyed the pants off it. I actually read Boy-Crazy Stacey, BSC #8, because I've been listening to the Babysitters Club Club podcast and that book was perfectly fine, but this graphic novel winnows the chaff from Boy Crazy Stacey into a more focused, and more realistic, drama about beaches, boys and babysitting. If I remember correctly, in the original novel, Stacey actually goes on dates wit...

    this is my all-time favorite BSC book so I'm pretty hard to please with any adaptation of it. I know we have to keep this series updated so kids today will read and relate to it, but I was still looking for toby's sunglasses ("black bands with narrow slits from side to side to see through") and the outfit of stacey's that mary anne borrows for their date ("yellow pedal pushers, a yellow and white striped tank top, and an oversized white jacket") ...

    This was a good quick read book! It was light and fluffy, but what bugged me was when Stacey would totally ignore the kids she was babysitting and go talk to the cute lifeguard. Then Mary Anne was left alone to babysit 8 kids! Overall I’d say this book is a good book for middle schoolers!
  • Logan Hughes
    I couldn't ask for a better comic adaptation of one of the most fun and juicy BSC books, Boy-Crazy Stacey! Gale Galligan's expressive art heightens the dramatic, romantic, and comedic moments; and the bright sunshiney colors and vivid sunsets bring to life the beauty (and kitschiness) of the seaside setting. The script hits all the right beats, not just in the main storyline, but including quirky family moments with the Pikes and side stories lik...

    I want Raina Telgemeier back...
  • Chelsey
    I am amazed by how well I remember little details from the original chapter book, which I read TWENTY-SIX YEARS AGO.
  • Ashley
    I read this late at night in sub-optimal lighting, so I don't think I allowed myself to be 100% immersed in this fantastic book. Not that that deterred me from loving this. The art is amazing as always, I love how the postcards were done. I felt like Stacey's crush on Scott could have been expanded on more - for instance, we never got to see her fetching him a soda - but the looks on Mary Anne's face more than made up for that. This was a delight...

    Loved this so much - Gale's style perfectly captures that summertime nostalgic crush energy
  • Rebecca
    A cute, fun summer read. I love these books but miss Reina's art. She drew the first four books in this series, and while Gale Galligan's art style is very nice and expressive, I'm still having trouble getting used to the shift in the style. There is something about Reina's designs that I prefer.
  • Natalie
    SUCH a cute graphic novel. I’ve really been enjoying reading the BSC graphic novels. Stacey was always my favorite, so I like stories that follow her. An adorable book and series!
  • Lucia Galluzzo
    one of my favoret books
  • Pam
    Here's number 7 in the Baby-sitters Club graphic novel series. The volume was beautifully designed and illustrated but I am so tired of the old "girl falls in love with boy and gives him all the power" theme. Please! Please! Please! can we let young girls know that they don't have to give away themselves in order to be "liked".

  • Kris - My Novelesque Life
    RATING: 4 STARS(Review Not on Blog) As a kid I LOVED the Baby-Sitters Club and would often spend hours scouring the library for the next title. Honestly, I probably read the series longer than I should have (reading level-wise), but it always felt like visiting friends. While I have never wanted to be a babysitter, I loved the club idea. As a bossy creative kid this was right up my alley. The friendships in this book was something I had always wa...
  • Kacie
    Over a few days, I read all seven of the available Baby-Sitters Club graphic novels. As a huge fan of the novels when I was a kid, I was nervous to see these adaptations. Would they retain the same charm?The nostalgia was strong. It was such a delight to revisit Kristy, Claudia, Stacey, Mary Anne, Dawn, Mallory. Jessi isn't back yet, and I hope she makes an appearance with the next installment.I loved reading about some of the old client families...
  • Soobie's scared
    Eh, eh, eh... Little ol' me wants to be a kid again... ^__^I love these adaptations: when I read they seem so familiar because I have glimpses of what I read almost 25 years ago. I loved the series and I was a bit sad when they stopped translating it in Italian around the 50th volume. Well, I also have to say that I was growing out of it...It made me happy and this is important for a book. Maybe these adaptations are all a bit short and it all se...
  • Kristin Bateman
    I first read this series in original form when I was a kid, and I'm loving the updates to the series. Obviously things have changed since the 80s, so I love to see the fresh and modern adaptations. An enjoyable trip down memory lane.
  • Jasmine
    Oh Stacey way back when I read the original books as a kid I was obsessed with you and Claudia. It's hard for me to understand my mindset now. (I think I'll always be a Mary Anne.) But still a very cute book.
  • Italy
    The book "Boy-Crazy Stacey" by Gale Galligan is a realistic fiction book that is about a girl named Stacy who is a babysitter and is part of the baby-sitters club. Her and another girl are in charge of babysitting the Penman kids. While at the beach Stacy falls in love. What I think is really cool is that there is an original series with different versions of the books. So you can compare the OG Boy Crazy Stacy to the new comical version. Another...

    Another cute BSC graphic novel!! I loved reading about Stacey & Mary Anne’s beach adventure, babysitting mishaps, and love interests. I can’t wait for the next installment!
  • Jaime
    As a teenager, I couldn’t wait to go to the bookstore or library to get the next book in the series. I am loving the new graphic novels that they have come out with. It takes me back to my teenage years and so many memories. The illustrations are amazing and the girls look exactly how I use to picture them in my head. I hope they are coming out with more.
