Boy-Crazy Stacey is the eighth book in the The Baby-Sitter's Club series. While spending two weeks at the Jersey shore as mother's helpers, Mary Anne objects when Stacey neglects her babysitting duties after falling in love with Scott, the lifeguard.

Main PlotEdit

Stacey and Mary Anne go to Sea City with the Pikes as mother's helpers. While there, Stacey falls for a cute-looking lifeguard named Scott. Stacey spends all of her time trying to get Scott's attention leaving Mary Anne to look after the Pike kids without her.

On Stacey & Mary Anne's night off, Stacey decides to buy Scott a heart-shaped box of candy, but is devastated when she sees him kissing another girl, who is his girlfriend. Stacey later meets a guy named Toby, who is the cousin of Alex, another mother's helper. After Stacey, Toby, Mary Anne, and Alex go on a double date, Stacey gets her first kiss in the Tunnel of Love.

Back Cover

Stacey and Mary Anne are baby-sitting for the Pike family for two weeks at the New Jersey shore. Things are great in Sea City. There's a gorgeous old house, a boardwalk, plenty of sun and sand... and the cutest boy Stacey has ever seen! Mary Anne knows that Scott the lifeguard is way too old for Stacey, but Stacey's in love. She fixes Scott's lunch, fetches his sodas, and spends all her time with him... instead of with the Pike kids. Suddenly Mary Anne's doing the work of two baby-sitters, and she doesn't like it one bit. But how can she tell Stacey the Scott just isn't interested — without breaking Stacey's heart?
