"What a tangled mess we weave when first we practice to deceive." - Sir Walter Scott. Oh, my gosh! This was probably my absolute favorite BSC book! It was so action packed and very enjoyable to read. When Stacey's workaholic father wants to take Stacey on a two-week vacation, Stacey knows exactly where she wants to go...Fire Island. That's where her boyfriend Robert is going to be vacationing with his family. Not telling her father know that Robert is going to be there, Stacey and her dad go to Fire Island, along with Claudia. But, along the way, Stacey's lies slowly begin to come to the surface. At first, they're no big deal. But after a while, Stacey's "white" lies begin to form a wedge between Claudia and Stacey's dad. So, when a surprising encounter with her father, Stacey's plan of seeing Robert begin to unravel. Soon, everyone hears about Stacey's lies and it becomes a terrible mess. I loved this book. Despite the romantic, fanciful cover, this book has a lot of heavy things. This book teaches the importance of never lying. In the book, the reader can see how Stacey's lies begin small and they don't affect anyone but later on, her lies become worse and worse. The book recognizes that lies can ruin relationships. This book was a good mixture of light romance and heavy life lessons. I appreciated that the romance in this book was appropriate for younger children (10+). I definitely think this book is a must read. It was perfect, full of good life lessons but still fun. I suggest this book if you like light romance, friendship, the importance of not lying, and of course, babysitting. Happy reading!
