It is so interesting to me to read these books as an adult because I always found the romance/teen focused plots boring. I was 100% in it for the baby-sitting and kid antics! Poor Stacey. Her crush on Scott is so tough to read about but I love Mary Anne being supportive even though Stacey had been a jerk the whole time. I love that they get to know each other through this and become Sea City buddies. :D

I also like how well developed the Pikes are. They're probably the most fleshed out and frequently appearing clients so far and I know that's because of the smal pool they have to draw from yet but I do love them. Mr. and Mrs. Pike have all this down to a T and I love how their family operates. And I love Mal getting to shine here. I find myself looking forward to her and Jessi joining!

I love how this vacation results in Stacey and Mary Anne being giggly all the time together in the next book! And it's really nice and human how Mary Anne is allowed to be both super annoyed by the situation with Scott, but also supportive of Stacey when the inevitable heartbreak comes.

I just realized that there's even a whole Super Special in between Mallory becoming a sittee and a sitter. It's been interesting seeing her being gently molded into a BSC member book by book - she's the only one we get to see evolve like this.

So many of Stacey's plots are really uncomfortable secondhand embarrassment for me, like this Scott one and the one where she has a crush on her teacher. Like. I got crushes when I was younger, too, but they were crushes, and obviously this much older dude is not going to be into you that way.

(And if he were, that would be gross. Ugh, I'll never get over Luca. "I'll be 14!")
