This book features some of Jessica's nastiest and most selfish behavior as she and her sorority pals gang up on overweight Robin, a girl who wants to join their clique. Elizabeth tries to help Robin, but her plan may backfire because it relies on help from notoriously self-absorbed Bruce Patman.

Looking at Jessica's nastiness through 21st century eyes is illuminating -- when I read this book as a girl, bullying didn't have nearly the attention that it does today. As a result, the casual treatment of Jessica's cruelty is sometimes jarring. Despite the subject matter, this is still a fun and light read that doesn't go too deep. At the end of the day, even Robin doesn't seem too upset by what happened.

Some of the reviews of the paperback version note changes to the text. As far as I can tell, the Kindle version duplicates what I read when I was young (that is, the Wakefield twins are described as size 6, not size 2). If you want to read the original, go with the Kindle version.

Sometimes the best way to get back into the swing of reading is picking up something easy. Growing up I loved to get Sweet Valley books from the library, whether it was from the Kids, Jr. High, or High series. Power Play was a fun and quick read that I zoomed through, and it inspired me to continue reading in 2014. Plus, I'll always enjoy Elizabeth and Jessica Wakefield's silly adventures. Not the best piece of literature, but a fun read for sure.

Brought back so many great memories!

I chose the five star rating because it is easy reading and I could relate to the story back then and all these years later I can still relate to how the author conveyed the trials and tribulations of the twins!

I would definitely recommend this this story as well as the series to anyone.

Way to go Amazon!!

don't like this modern version... it was unreal enough when the twins were a size 6 in the 80s/90s, now that they are smaller, you have lost me as a fan... I will hold on the my old copies, and let my daughter read those, not these new ones
