“Stacy’s Song”- A Review

Standard

Stacy’s Song by Jacqueline Seewald is a Young Adult novel published by L&L Dreamspell. I received a review copy and read it in the last few days.

The story centers around a fifteen year old girl who is trying to figure out who she wants to be. She has some musical talent but is also athletic and has decided to try out for the cheerleading squad with her friend. The main character, Stacy, seems to be a people pleaser. She spends a lot of the book participating in activities to make her friends and her father happy and not necessarily for herself.

In some scenes, the main character shows a maturity beyond her years.  In others, she seems immature.  As I thought this over, being the mother of a sixteen year old myself, I found these apparent dicotomies to be mostly believeable.

I enjoyed this book except I felt the denouement happened a bit too quickly and would have liked that part of the book to have continued on a bit.  Overall, I would definitely recommend this book. It was a fun, quick read and the growth of main character was well developed.   I’m sure devotees of the YA genre will enjoy this coming of age romance.

  1. Hi, Sherry,

    Just want to say I appreciate you reading and reviewing STACY’S SONG.
    I hope your daughter enjoys it too.

    Happy Holidays!

    • Thanks Jacquie. It was great- my sixteen year old is a boy- musician- guitar player so it’s something he’d probably like. I enjoyed it a lot. I was probably conservative in my review – I never believe gushing reviews so I tried to be more subdued, but I did love it.
