From the Publisher

Summer dreams...

Summer's here, and the Wakefield twins can't wait to join Lila Fowler in fabulous, beach-lined Malibu. Elizabeth and Jessica have arranged jobs as mother's helpers and are looking forward to a dream vacation filled with Hollywood stars and gorgeous guys.

But the girls soon find out things aren't always as they seem in sunny Malibu. Elizabeth's heart Is won by someone much too old for her. Even though she feels guilty about it, she begins to see him secretly. While Elizabeth tries desperately to keep her sister from finding out, Jessica is busy trying to get bronzed Cliff Sherman to notice her. Can the girls straighten out their summer romances, or will Malibu's magic be only an illusion?

Liz and Jess are baby-sitting in Malibu! Jessi si sitting for a poor family while Liz is living in a mansion. Liz meets a quiet writer and loves him instantly. Then she finds out is real identity after he is almost murdered. Can Liz trust him? A great book. Most Sweet Valley fans probably haven't read it yet.

I read this book becase I love the water . The part I likedthe most is when the baby-sitter went to buy clothes .Becase all the clothes were more than $300 so she just got a dress that did not cost to much .This isbook is very fun to read!

You should have seen my face expression when I found this series in a used bookstore. Sure, it's for the young adult crowd, but I remembered reading these when I was younger and just had to walk down memory lane....again. You guys must think I'm a complete sentimental nut. Most people don't care about getting the books back that they read when they were that young, but alas, I'm never normal.

Once I jumped in...err, well. My enthusiasm flattened. The material was younger than I remembered, for one thing. I can read Pike with ease and still think many of his books are adultish, and R.L Stine pushes it at times but still tells a great little tale, but this...too young. The bigger stinker of the thing was (Hey, I read Judy Blume too remember?), that the plot just isn't good. I don't care what age level it's meant for, the realism is too anorexic. I read a few other reviews before penning this one, and found some feel the same and cite other stories as more defined. It's too much that one sister falls in love with a rock star (who no one recognizes). The unbelievability probably failed to move when I was wetter behind the ears, too.

Character wise, it's decent. Jessica and Elizabeth are always perfect opposites of each other, both endearing in their own ways. Things are too dramatic for the most part with them, but I can see why young adults would be drawn to the females. It is frustrating never to see what developed with Jessica's friends younger guy, but I suppose the moral of that sub-story was summed up. Still there is something undeniably attractive about reading a story about two girls so popular, outgoing, with everything at their fingertips.

For young teens it's worth a try but nothing they should savor much.

Oh please! How dumb do Francine Pascal and Kate William really think we are? I mean Liz falls for a 'quiet reserved writer' who just happens to be a 'pop/rock star' - as if. Who is going to believe that a really famous - and busy (yes, not all 'rock stars' get the chance to go on vacation and disguise themselves as 'writers') guy is going to fall for one of the Wakefield twins when there are, like, millions of women out there who are better looking, older and wealthier than Elizabeth Wakefield. Oh, pardon me - I am forgetting that this IS Sweet Valley (home to the 'beautiful Wakefields and their perfect existence'). Don't waste your time - there are better SV books out there (no, really).
