Stacey's Mistake (Baby-sitters Club) ePub download

Letter from Ann M. Martin. Which meant that a lot of kids were going to need baby-sitters.

Letter from Ann M. Remember the Baby-sitters Club I belonged to in Stoneybrook? Well, I sort of carried the club back to New York with me, except that I’m the only member of the city branch. For some reason, most of my friends here don’t seem interested in sitting. On the one hand, this is nice, because there are plenty of little kids in my building, so I get lots of jobs. On the other hand, I have to turn down lots of jobs, too, and I always· feel bad about that. Besides, I miss the meetings our club used to hold.

I loved writing Stacey’s Mistake, the first book in t he series that takes place in New York City. If you stacked all of these books up, the pile would be 21,245 miles high. In addition to The Baby-sitters Club, Ann is the author of two other series, Main Street and Family Tree. Since I’ve lived in New York for a long time, it was lots of fun creating Stacey’s life there - her neighborhood, her friends, her apartment. I love living in New York. Her novels include Belle Teal, A Corner of the Universe (a Newbery Honor book), Here Today, A Dog’s Life, On Christmas Eve, Everything for a Dog, Ten Rules for Living with My Sister, and Ten Good and Bad Things About My Life (So Far).

This is a list of the novels in The Baby-Sitters Club, a children's book series created by Ann M. The first 35 novels were written by Martin, after which some of the books were ghostwritten; 44 of these were written by Peter Lerangis.

Stacey invites her Baby-sitters Club friends down for a weekend in New York City, but the big city creates big problems for the girls
My 11 year old loves all of these books. She read this one in a day and was eager for more.
I've been reading a lot in the series lately. Hey, folks....continuity is very important. For Kristy's grandma, is Nannie spelled NANNIE or NANNY? Pick one and stick with it! Speaking of spelling, is Claudia really THAT stupid!? Anyway, moving on.....Stacy has the whole gang over for the weekend and tries to get them to mesh with her NY friends. Doesn't go so well! Kristy and Claudia get into it over a boy; Dawn is scared of everything; Maryann is obsessed with the tourist trappings. Uh, a little unrealistic with all those kids running around Central Park unchaperoned.
Even though I read this as a kid, I thought the premise for this one was silly. In New York City, where Stacey now lives away from her friends, a bunch of people from her neighborhood are all going to a meeting so they can discuss stuff about homeless people, and therefore . . . surprise! They all suddenly need babysitters! Sounds like a great excuse to invite four girls from another state to come babysit all the kids, right? (Well, it's a plot coupon, I guess.)

The details that stuck with me were Kristy ordering a filet mignon and pronouncing it "fill-it-mig-non," and one of Stacey's friends squealing about how "grown-UP!" she sounds while being ever so worldly, and how someone thought Laine looked "at least nineteen" because of how she was dressed. It was kinda nice that Stacey got to introduce her friends to her best friend from the city, but of course there's stupid manufactured friction.

Also, the girls' naïveté keeps showing, and yet these thirteen-year-olds are then inexplicably hired to babysit a bunch of strange kids. (Not strange as in weird; strange as in unknown to each other.) I'm not buying this at all. In fact, I wouldn't have bought it even if it had involved the group of young babysitters staying home with the kids, but THEY TOOK THEM OUT IN THE CITY and out to a museum and Central Park, which sounds risky when it's a bunch of babysitters who don't know anything about the city.

Oh, and the parents of the neighborhood decide to start a soup kitchen to help the homeless. Must be nice to be able to just decide stuff like that in one meeting.
When I was a little girl, I wanted to be like the babysitters' club. As an adult, however, I give this book five stars, not because I like the girls in this book, but rather the opposite. Yes, you read me right. "Stacy's Mistake" portrays these girls finally in a realistic way for thirteen year olds: responsible when they need to be, but also petty, jealous, insecure, know-it-all, etc.
An example I'm talking about is at lunch, when Kristy orders fillet mignon and doesn't know how to pronounce it. When I was young, I remember feeling embarrassed with Stacey that Kristy had ordered "Fill-it-mig-non" but now I realize Stacey was being a little unfair. After all, these girls are thirteen, and except for Stacey, have lived in a little town all their life, what's the chance that they've had fillet mignon before? Though I wouldn't be surprised if Watson, Kristy's stepfather took the family to fancy restaurants occasionally, being a millionaire.
Then there's Claudia. Classic teenage jealousy, and she attacks Laine, it seems, out of nowhere. I'm not really surprised, though, as wasn't Claudia also jealous of Stacey when they first met, because they both had interest in fashion?
Anyway, great book, but beware: this time, these really are thirteen year olds.
I followed this series religiously 20 some years ago in 5th-8th grade and Stacey was my fave character and my altar ego. I was so happy that Mrs. Martin chose to keep Stacey in the picture despite her departure to NY. The series would not be the same without her. This series is realistic fiction yet some do gripe that the characters seem to have perfect lives. As a teenager I wanted a perfect life, body, and boyfriend but was confused after reading the books that my life didn't seem as fortunate as the BSC. It was even hard getting Baby-sitting jobs! Yet I still wouldn't change anything about these books, I would want my daughter(s) reading them over Goosebumps or any junk. The BSC is sweet, beautiful and innocent. There is no sex or drugs in the books because basically, at that age, children are not mature enough to deal with those issues. The BSC members don't truly have perfect lives; there is divorce, peer rejection, illnesses, deaths, etc to deal with. But these books are a great escape from your troubles. Way to go, Mrs. Martin!!
I loved this book!!! It's so fun that the rest of the BSC who live in Connecticut get to come visit Stacey in NYC and go sightseeing, have a party with Stacey's New York friends, and have a baby-sitting adventure! It's written well too.
So anyway... they start off by sightseeing. Stacey is my favorite member of the BSC, but at first in this book, she's kind of bratty. She thinks everything her friends do are SO embarrassing, which makes her seem kind of insecure. I mean, if she was really confident she wouldn't be embarrassed when her friend says "you sound so grown-up!" But I LUV this book. It's a lot of fun! My favorite parts are: when they go to Bloomingdale's, when they go to the Hard Rock Cafe, and when they go to Central Park!!! The whole weekend sounds great, and it's realistic, too.
I love the BSC books about New York, but this is the best one -- better than New York, New York! the super special.
Definitely read it you'll LOVE it!!!!!
Stacey and her friend Lanie find out that there's a huge board meeting coming up. Lots of kids are going to need baby-sitters. And Stacey is is WAY overbooked. Then Stacey has a great idea, what if the baby-sitters club could come to NYC? So she asks her mom, they call her friends and its all set. But, when the baby-sitters get there things don't go as planed, Mary anne is like a walking guide book, Dawn is scared of everything, Kristy cant keep her mouth shut, and Claudia is jealous of Stacey's friends. Is this the end of the BSC.
