When Stacey starts dating Robert, a cute basketball player, she gets to hang out with the "popular crowd." They're the jocks and the cheerleaders, and they're super cool — way more sophisticated than her friends in the Baby-sitters Club. Plus, the cheerleaders have asked Stacey to try out for the squad.
Even though the Baby-sitters think the cheerleaders are stuck-up snobs, they're still rooting for Stacey. But what happens when she makes the team? Will Stacey and her new boyfriend be too cool for the BSC?
In Stacey and the Cheerleaders, Tiffany Kilbourne needs to find a hobby. As a child, I had many hobbies. I was interested in lots of things, and I was always starting new projects. I tried stamp collecting, coin collecting, macramé, and needlework. Although I was not a very active kid, I did try ballet lessons, and I took exactly three tennis lessons! I attacked each new project or hobby (except for the tennis lessons) with a vengeance, even if it didn’t last long. For instance, my stamp collection began when I inherited a partially filled stamp album. I soon discovered that I could get stamps from all over the world through the mail, and I spent hours ordering and arranging stamps. For a long time one of my biggest hobbies was magic. It started when my father, an amateur magician, gave me all of his old tricks. Then, just like with the stamp collecting, I found that I could order magic tricks through the mail. I pored through catalogues, ordering new tricks, and then I entertained my charges with them. So the next time you’re bored, just think of all the things you could try. And you can find out about most hobbies simply by going to the library. You’ll be amazed by what you can find there.
