Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Sweet Valley is stunned by the news: Beautiful young Elizabeth Wakefield lies in a coma, on the brink of death after a horrible motorcycle accident.

Elizabeth's boyfriend Todd is consumed by guilt; he was driving and escaped unharmed. He feels totally helpless. All he can do is wait for a change in Elizabeth's condition--a change that might mean the loss of the only girl he's ever loved.

But no one is more shattered than Elizabeth's twin, Jessica. As she keeps watch over the silent body of her sister, she's overwhelmed by despair. Without Elizabeth, can life go on?

This is probably one of the most memorable books from the SVH series. "A senseless tragedy" changes the persona of Elizabeth Wakefield; she becomes wild, reckless, and shameless to say the least. Her sweet, loyal and ethical persona has evaporated as an outcome of her accident, leaving a trail of devestation in her wake towards her friends and family.

Jessica notices the sudden change in her sister, and is immediately held responsible for her sister's actions; by both her parents and her friends. Here Jessica has to assume the role of the more "responsible" twin, which she loathes since it is getting in the way of her social life. Jessica changes only enough where she has to take on the responsible role of chaperone for her sister as well as defender to her sister's actions. In short, the character roles of Elizabeth and Jessica Wakefield have (for the first and only time in this series) reversed. Only Elizabeth takes the role Jessica normally holds to a much higher and wilder level (i.e. allowing Bruce Patman of all people, attempts to seduce her twice). Jessica is left having to make excuses for her twin and stuck having to babysit the Percy twins, another stressor in her life that she could do without.

Todd's character is amazing. Even though Elizabeth has snubbed him countless times throughout, he still shows his commitment and devotion for "the only girl he's ever loved". He rescues her numerous times from her disasterous and reckless behavior, which only adds strength to his already revered character. His allience with Jessica is suprising, but not too surprising to notice that it lasts only as long as Elizabeth is going through her "mysterious illness".

Although there is a little critical note in which should be addressed.

Man! This book is awesome! Elizabeth gets stranded at a party and her sister Jessica left her there like she always does. Elizabeth has no choice but to go with Todd on his new bike and while she is on the bike, BOOM!!, there is an accident. Todd is left with some cuts and bruises but Elizabeth was not wearing a helmet and ends up lying in a coma. Elizabeth recovers and her good old you-can-count-on-me personality has transformed into Jessica's party-till-you-drop personality. Elizabeth goes out with every boy in town and ends up with Bruce Patman! WHAT WILL HAPPEN?

This is a heart wrenching book. Jessica leaves Elizabeth stranded one day. Todd is luckily there, or it would be lucky except for one thing. All he has is a motorcycle. That's when this story really begins.

Elizabeth decides to go with Todd. Just a short ride. What harm could it do? Suddenly, she is lying in a coma, on the brink of death and all the tearstained faces of Jessica and Todd can do is watch her pale, lifeless body. They can only await a change. A change for the good..or the worse.

Finally Liz awakes from her coma. Unfortunately. She is no longer faithful, trustworthy Liz. She is a selfish, boy crazy Liz. Can Todd and her family reach her before she falls into Bruce Patman's clutches?? Read the book to find out!

This book was great. Evne though I read ti a long itme ago I'll try to write a good review. Elizabeth is in a coma from the motorcycle accident with Todd. Todd comes out ok, not hurt. Than all of a sudden... Elizabeth wakes up. Everyone thinks it's over with, it's a happy ending, but there wrong. She starts acting like Jessica! It gets to the point were she goes out with Bruce and she goes to his house! I know,shocking, I recomnd this book to any sweet valley fan.

Dear Sister is the saddest book in the series so far. Elizabeth was in a motorcycle accident thanks to her boyfriend, Todd. Everyone is worried that she will die. Will she? Find out by reading this book. It made me cry.

I loved this book because it's full of unexpected surprises. Jessica acts like Liz, and Liz acts like Jessica. I won't spoil the ending, but trust me--it's a great book! :)

This book is great. The book is about when Liz got into a motorcycle accident and started to acted like Jessica. Jessica always wanted Elizabeth to be like her. But when Liz starts acting like her ,Jessica realizes that their having different personalities is not necessarily a bad thing.My favorite part is when Liz gets better and starts acting like her old self again. If you love SVH books you will want to get this book.
