Goodreads Synopsis:

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 house right on the beach, a boardwalk, plenty of sun and sand… and the cutest boy Stacey has ever seen!

Mary Anne thinks that Stacey should leave Scott alone and focus on the Pike kids, but Stacey’s in love. Looking for reasons to hang around his lifeguard stand takes up all of her time, which means Mary Anne has to do the job of two baby-sitters. Mary Anne doesn’t like it one bit! How can she tell Stacey that Scott just isn’t interested without ruining their friendship and breaking Stacey’s heart? 


The babysitters are much more grown up in this story. Stacey and Mary Anne go on a family vacation with the Pike family and their eight children. While they’re away, Stacey meets two boys she really likes. She falls for them, and even has her heart broken. It was an exciting two weeks for them.

I wish the other characters were more prominent in this story. They appeared briefly at the beginning, but then the story followed Stacey and Mary Anne on their trip. They sent postcards to the other babysitters, but their replies were never shown. I would have liked to see what they were all doing during their vacation.

This was another great graphic novel adaptation of the Babysitters Club!
