Overview

Stacy's talent and love for music forces her to make hard choices. Life is risky, but she must learn to make important decisions on her own.

Stacy Nelson, warm-hearted with a sense of humor, is a tall, skinny teenager, sometimes called "giraffe" by other kids. She's an average student with a lot of extracurricular interests. Her good friend Karen wants Stacy to practice with her and try out for cheerleading. Liz Norris asks Stacy to join a band that she and her brother Michael are starting, but she has reservations.
Her first meeting with Michael Norris is stormy, yet she is drawn in by his outstanding musical ability and joins the band. Stacy always wants to please everyone, but fails to think about who she is and what she really wants.
After making the cheerleading squad, Greg Lawson, captain of the football team, becomes interested in Stacy. He is easy-going and charming, just the opposite of Michael. They start dating, and Stacy is suddenly popular in and out of school. As a cheerleader, she is accepted by the in-crowd. She tries to relax and enjoy this new lifestyle.
When Stacy has difficulty meeting all of her commitments and her grades fall, her father is displeased and insists she quit the band. Stacy feels torn-wanting to please her father without letting down the other band members. Ultimately, while dealing with family and peer pressure, she must decide what is best for her.

    Reviewed for Midwest Book Review

    High schooler Stacy Nelson, tall and slender and sometimes called "Giraffe" by her classmates, has always felt like an outsider. Stacy, a people pleaser, is drawn to music, like her mother, who gave it up for marriage and children. Through friends, Stacy's extracurricular activities veer in two different directions: as a cheerleader with her best friend Karen and a rock band member with her friend Liz. Through the band, Stacy's love for music grows stronger and she feels as if she's found her niche. As a cheerleader, her social life blooms and she becomes part of the popular clique. When Stacy's grades falter, her father makes an ultimatum: lose one of her extracurricular activities, pushing her toward quitting the band. Stacy is forced to make a choice: follow her heart or give in to parental and peer pressure.

    Jacqueline Seewald expertly portrays the mindset of teenagers struggling for their place in the world and ultimate independence. Stacy is an endearing character, a young woman who loves her parents but wants the right to choose what to do with her life. Readers are drawn into Stacy's world as she struggles to make the right choices which will affect her future. This well-written coming-of-age novel is heartwarming and engaging and sure to be a popular addition to the young-adult genre.

    Read this YA coming of age romance

    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.

    This is an entertaining young adult tale

    In Junior high school, Stacy Nelson was called a giraffe as she was very thin with a long neck and towered over all the boys. Now in high school she remains taller than all the girls but some of the boys are taller than her, but she remains somewhat disturbed by being the giraffe.

    Her best friend Karen persuades her to try out for cheerleading while the viola player behind her in the school band, Liz, asks her to try out for a band that she and her brother Michael is forming. Stacy joins both, but finds talented blind Michael nasty towards her while football team captain Greg is nice and charming as he wants to date her. As she becomes popular at school and struggles with balancing her commitments, her grades fall upsetting her parents. Especially upset is her father who demands she quits the Norris band, Stacy must decide between two young males who are attracted to her.

    This is an entertaining young adult tale starring a likable high school age girl who goes from being the outside freak to the in-crowd. Stacy is stupendous lead as she struggles with two boys; one is charming while the other is demanding. Who will she choose particularly since her dad has already selected who he wants kicked to the curb.
