the best friends you’ll never have

As always: Original thread is here.

I also feel like this is a question I’ve answered already on this blog. My favorite book of the regular series is Stacey and the Bad Girls. I like the mid-90sness of it all, the descriptions of the Bad Girls, seeing someone have a life without meeting Monday-Wednesday-Friday from 5:30 to 6.

Oh Stacey, you’re not a “grunge sponge;” U4Me just sing the best songs! And watch out for miniature bottles of wine hidden in flop socks! It is always hilarious whenever the series attempts to deal with Teenage Rebellion (see: Logan Bruno, Boy Baby-Sitter.)

I’m a fan of later Stacey books in general, really, from Stacey and the Cheerleaders on. They deal mostly with Stacey’s boy problems, and once she gets rid of Robert, we get… Ethan, easily the hottest/coolest of any BSC boyfriend.

Did you notice the numbering is off in the original post? It says there’s 30 but there’s actually 29. I’m completely uncreative and can’t think of another one.

Kristy’s Big Day. I didn’t even know that was AMM’s favorite too. I liked it because Kristy was still on Bradford Court and I always wished I had a best friend next door. It was also before everything got too cliched.

@hobbes12: I’m actually less of a fan of the earlier books. I think I like the cliches, actually. They’re comforting.

The Stacey-goes-bad arc is flawfree. It’s hard for me to narrow down one singular favourite book, but the Stacey books from 70-87 are awesome.

I loved Dawn and the Big Sleepover. that’s the only one that I can distinctly remember the plot of. it was neat to realize that someone not much older than I was could arrange and pull off an event. also the desire to help the Zuni children seemed very real to me. the series wasn’t good at pulling off emotional bits but this one worked.
