Read full description of the books:
it was a relief to finally get to this book because they have been foreshadowing it for at least twnty books--seriously. it's not unusual in the babysitters club series to shadow maybe four or five books in advance, but stacey has been looking thin, pale, & sickly pretty much since her parents got divorced back in book #24 or whenever it was, & it all finally comes to a head here.
basically, this book is all about stacey feeling like crap physically, sneaking one of claudia's ho hos, guzzling a package of M&Ms in the girls' bathroom at school, sneaking home some chocolate fudge that charlotte & becca made while stacey was sitting for them, going to new york to see her dad even though she didn't feel well & had fallen way behind on schoolwork, & having to go to the hospital. she thinks maybe she got sick because she strayed from her diet, but impending puberty also played a role. stacey has to stay in the hospital for about a week, which seems like a really long time. she is even on a constant insulin drip for a little while.
while she's in the hospital, her parents are of course worried about her. but they arrange to not visit her at the same time. if one shows up while the other is there, one will wander off to get coffee & wait until their ex has vacated the premises. stacey is naive enough to believe that maybe mrs. mcgill is staying in stacey's room at her father's new apartment. has she not noticed that her parents' divorce is fairly acrimonious? it's nice to think they can put their differences aside while stacey is sick, but it's not very realistic.
anyway, stacey gets mad one day when she basically forces them to hang out together in her room, & they start bickering. mrs. mcgill says something scathing about how mr. mcgill would be more up-to-date on the changes in stacey's condition if he didn't work on weekends. mr. mcgill basically accuses mrs. mcgill of letting stacey get sick, since she already felt crummy when she came to NYc from stoneybrook. stacey yells at both of them & kicks them out of her room. she apologizes later & the book ends with stacey having a heart-to-heart with both parents about not wanting to be put in the middle of their squabbles.
the B-plot involves charlotte, who becomes a hypochondriac after stacey lands in the hospital. charlotte's parents & sitters theorize that charlotte thinks she can be in the hospital with stacey if she gets sick enough. i don't remember diliking charlotte when i read these books as a child, but she sometimes grates on my nerves as an adult. the whole passage where charlotte & becca dress up like martians & make fudge was REALLY difficult to read. fucking precocious brats. i would suicidally indulge in chocolate too if i was stacey.

Read information about the authorAnn Matthews Martin was born on August 12, 1955. She grew up in Princeton, New Jersey, with her parents and her younger sister, Jane. After graduating from Smith College, Ann became a teacher and then an editor of children's books. She's now a full-time writer.
Ann gets the ideas for her books from many different places. Some are based on personal experiences, while others are based on childhood memories and feelings. Many are written about contemporary problems or events. All of Ann's characters, even the members of the Baby-sitters Club, are made up. But many of her characters are based on real people. Sometimes Ann names her characters after people she knows, and other times she simply chooses names that she likes.
Ann has always enjoyed writing. Even before she was old enough to write, she would dictate stories to her mother to write down for her. Some of her favorite authors at that time were Lewis Carroll, P. L. Travers, Hugh Lofting, Astrid Lindgren, and Roald Dahl. They inspired her to become a writer herself.
Since ending the BSC series in 2000, Ann’s writing has concentrated on single novels, many of which are set in the 1960s.
After living in New York City for many years, Ann moved to the Hudson Valley in upstate New York where she now lives with her dog, Sadie, and her cats, Gussie, Willy and Woody. Her hobbies are reading, sewing, and needlework. Her favorite thing to do is to make clothes for children.
