Very cute. I really liked Mary Anne and I know what Logan sees in her - she really is genuinely interested in people. Logan was also a good addition to the group. My favourite part is still the baby sitting tips for some reason. It's fun to imagine what the girl would grow into much later, I can see Kristy being a sensational businesswoman for example. ( )

When I was younger, I remember that this book was my favorite of the series. As an adult, I find the junior high romance cute, but nothing more. In this entry in the Baby-Sitter saga, the girls are starting their eighth grade year, and they all feel excited and disappointed - eager for the new year, but sad that the summer is over. Mary Anne's emotions are further complicated when she sees the new boy in school, Logan Bruno. He is her idea of cute. Since the story is, as always, in the first person, we get to experience along with Mary Anne her first exposure to childhood infatuation: the tongue-tied moments, the flushes, the awkward advances. Logan thinks Mary Anne is cute, too, and not only that, he is a boy baby sitter.

The story follows two threads, as this series frequently does, one related to baby sitting and one on a personal level. For the baby sitting angle, the girls are trying to decide whether Logan should join their club. They like him as a friend, and they are overloaded with business and need the extra help, but having a boy at their meetings is too embarrassing. They assign Mary Anne to assist him on his first job, just to be sure that his skills are up to the task. On the personal front, this book is all about the relationship between Mary Anne and Logan. He invites her to a dance, she buys a new outfit with the girls, and they call each other every day. When he conspires with Stacey and the other baby sitters to throw Mary Anne a surprise birthday party, though, her shy nature has reached its limit.

Don't worry, everything works out. That is one of the reasons the series is so comforting; I know I will find a happy ending. The reading is fast and fun, and the baby sitters are all sweet girls that are easy to root for. Mary Anne is still my favorite, because I was so like her when I was younger, but I liked her previous book better. Even though I am happy Mary Anne has a sweet young love, she's in junior high. It is an early experiment with relationships, and the stakes are pretty low, in my opinion. Nonetheless, it was cute, and entertaining, and continues to keep me interested in reading further in the series. ( )
