Book Description

Who will Todd choose—the glamorous Jessica or the gentle Elizabeth?

Elizabeth and Jessica Wakefield are identical twins—beautiful, blonde, perfect—but they couldn’t be more different from each other. Elizabeth is friendly, good-natured, and kind, and the complete opposite of her clever, conniving sister. Jessica believes the world revolves around her…and the problem is that most of the time it does. Jessica always gets what she wants—at school, amongst her friends, and especially with boys.

This time, she’s got her eye on Todd Wilkins, the good-looking star of Sweet Valley High’s basketball team—and the one boy Elizabeth really likes. Now the twins are in a game of double love, with Todd as first prize. Will Elizabeth fight for the Todd? What will Jessica stoop to in order to get what she wants? Can the bonds of sisterhood stand up to the pangs of a broken heart?

Welcome to Sweet Valley High… the beloved series by Francine Pascal.




Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Will Jessica steal Todd from Elizabeth?

Elizabeth and Jessica Wakefield are identical twins at Sweet Valley High. They`re both popular, smart, and gorgeous, but that's where the similarity ends. Elizabeth is friendly, outgoing, and sincere -- nothing like her snobbish and conniving twin. Jessica gets what she wants -- at school, with friends, and especially with boys.

This time, Jessica has set her sights on Todd Wilkins, the handsome star of the basketball team -- the one boy that Elizabeth really likes. Elizabeth doesn't want to lose him, but what Jessica wants, Jessica usually gets... even if it ends up hurting her sister.

Meet the Wakefield twins, their guys, and the rest of the gang at Sweet Valley High....

I am an old SVH addict. I admit it, even as my 34 year old self, cringes a little bit. I stopped reading the series when I was about 19, too old for the books even then, I guess. About three years ago, when I was home for weeks on medical leave I ordered some online (my originals being long gone) and voila, in a few weeks I was the proud owner of the entire original SVH series, AGAIN. I read them until my six weeks of leave ended but I still kept collecting. So its very odd to me, that just a couple years after I start thinking about them again, they pop back up with a modernized version. I was excited. I have a twelve year old daugter. I wanted nothing more than some cool remake to renew the names of Jessica & Elizabeth Wakefield in today's culture. I eagerly sank into these books when they arrived. I was disappointed beyond belief to see the Dairi Burger completely gone to make way for a funky named Mexican restaurant. What, there aren't any small independent burger restaurants in small sunny California towns anymore? The twins are a perfect size 4 now instead of a 6. There are no sororities and fraternities (which seems legit to me as even in the 80's I never knew a high school with them) Enid has straight hair instead of curly hair, which makes me wonder if they are modeling her after the actress that played her on the tv series. Most of these changes are ok with me, I guess. I don't like that Bruce seems to be missing his 1Bruce1 license plate. I don't like that Dana Larson has become a goth girl imitation of herself. I don't like that Winston seems to play a geekier role than before, if possible. I know I will still buy each of these books. I am dying to see young girls devouring these remakes like I did (hopefully), I am dying for the appearance of the much anticipated Sweet Valley Confidential set when the twins are 26 years old, and I am dying for this New Kids on The Block reunion. Hey, I said I was all about bringing the 80's back.

2.0 out of 5 stars They ruined it April 16, 2008
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I went to my local bookstore and saw they were re-releasing Sweet Valley High and I was excited because now I could finish my collection, I had no idea they were rewritten and when I was reading one of the books in the store I was shocked to realize this. I almost flipped out.

I can see the whole email thing and cell phones but changing story lines and characters and other stuff wasn't necessary they pretty much rewrote the second book. This is very upsetting.

They didn't need to change their sizes from a 6 to a 4. Teenage girls already have issues about that and now they are trying to say a size 6 is too fat? Since when?

5.0 out of 5 stars Ahhh, Sweet Valley... December 10, 2006
A Kid's Review
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I'm thirteen years old living in a world where the new teen books at Barnes and Noble is all about the trashy, rich Paris Hilton wanna-bes. Most teen books today are all about how much sex you can have and how fast you can get it. Every new book series out is about cliques and how speical and great the girls in them are. I am terribly offended when I read those books. Books like Gossip Girl and A-List should not be in the hands of young girls. Sweet Valley touches on these subjects in a classy, subtle way. It takes you back to what used to be the simplicity of life. They may be dull to girl today, and that's a shame because they teach wonderful morals at the end of each story. Yes, they may cow-tow to some obvious stereotypes, and use some crazy plots, but they are so much more age appopriate!

2.0 out of 5 stars Stick to the original December 6, 2008
Format:Mass Market Paperback
As a self-proclaimed SV addict I followed the series throughout my teenage years and began re-reading them well into my late 20's and early 30's for nostalgia's sake. I was so excited about the re-release, yet after I read the first book I was very disappointed. It's as though the authors are trying to hard to compete with Gossip Girls. I didn't buy the updates and "modern" language and I doubt teenagers will either. As much as I would love to see this series continue to grow (and I am anticipating Sweet Valley Confidental or Sweet Valley Heights) I think the biggest fanbase will be readers like me- those looking for a bit of nostalgia.

5.0 out of 5 stars a must for anyone seeking escape July 12, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
i have always believed that fiction books are just that: fiction. they are a great way to get away from the problems of real life for a little while and just relax. hello, isn't that what tv is all about? i am 21 now, and i read just about every one of the sweet valley high books when i was younger and i loved them. they are great books, well-written, and give some important moral lessons, even if the settings are not everyday-normal. i would recommend these books to any young girl who realizes, understands, and expects fiction books to be fun entertainment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic SV at its best.... February 2, 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I know a lot of people criticise the Sweet Valley books for being 'unrealistic', etc. That's just what they're supposed to be - pure escapism. I love this book and all the other early books - they're fantastically politically In-correct. I mean, Jessica is such a complete witch but, you can't help rooting for her. Liz is also a great sympathetic character but, at the same time, you can't help wanting to give her a slap. I agree with the previous reviewer about the SV series becoming 'hip'. It's a shame. SV was unique in its own way - by making the series modern turns it into any other Teen book series. I'd definitely reccommend reading this SV book - and any other early books you can get hold of.
