Review: Stacey's Mistake (BSC Graphix 14) by Ellen T Crenshaw and Ann M Martin
This was a fun adaption, and the first not to be set in the BSC's hometown. Ellen T Crenshaw takes a few liberties with the plot--for example in the original, Mallory and Jessi stayed at home. And although I remember the bit about the big babysitting job, I don't remember the subplot about the local theatre company. Then again, those things do not really matter. The plot is entertaining enough and there are some great themes that are relevant to the target audience about friendship and acceptance. Although this one did not quite have the nostalgia hit I was hoping for, there is still plenty within the pages for grown up fans.
PS The next instalment in the series will be Claudia and the Bad Joke which will be released in the United States soon, with an Australian release date on the horizon. Mallory and the Trouble With Twins is also slated for adaption, and there are whispers that another title will be announced soon.
