Complete train wreck..., and I couldn't put it down. Think "Jerry Springer" meets "Days of Our Lives" meets the Sweet Valley twins. Just a little teaser... Jessica and Todd are in love, but Todd's engaged to Elizabeth (who has no clue about the affair going on behind her back). Can't wait to start the second book.

lots of drama, totally not what i'd expected. Interesting followup for SVH, but i wouldn't have read this if I hadn't read the series in the past

Not the Wakefield twins you remember from your teens. A much darker story. But started it and didn't put down til I finished.

I loved Sweet Valley High growing up, so I was excited to read this book. But the truth? This book is bad. Boring, dull, slow, poorly written. I didn't expect great literature, but I hoped for some soapy fun and silly melodrama. But nothing really happens, and it ruins several characters for SVH fans. Skip it!

It felt like only yesterday that I had read my last Sweet Valley High. This book brought back many memories of my high school years as I read it. I felt like I was catching up with old friends. For those who grew up reading the series, i doubt you will be dissapointed by reading this one, although Jessica's anthics still leave something to be desired, Elizabeth it seems finally comes into her own. I enjoyed this look into where they have been and where they were going.

If you were a fan of the Sweet Valley Twins, and Sweet Valley High books when you were younger, you may be interested in checking out this book and reading about what happened to the Wakefield twins, their friends, and their family. Or you might feel an intriguing urge to re-caulk your bathtub tile and seal the grout.

In this case, go ahead and re-caulk your bathtub. I was a huge fan of the Sweet Valley High series, I read almost every single book right up to 100 (and even past 100). I was giddy like a school girl when this book was first announced on a blog I subscribe to.

Then I actually read the book. To put it bluntly, the book sucks. I spent two and a half hours reading this book, and I am still overcome with sadness that I cannot get that time back. In fact, I almost wanted to not return the book back to the library, so as to save another unsuspecting patron from having to endure this marathon in crap.

If you are interested in what happened in Sweet Valley after you stopped reading the books, then just read the last five pages of the book so as to catch up with all your favourite characters.

Otherwise, head over to Home Depot, I hear they have a sale on caulk.

I loved this book! I devoured Sweet Valley High books while growing up (and Sweet Valley Twins and, for a little while, Sweet Valley University), so the thought of a new adult entry in the series was mouth-watering. This follow-up novel was even sweeter than I expected. After waiting so long for the dessert, it was all the more delicious to finally see Elizabeth truly mad at Jessica, to hear the shitty side of being a twin discussed, to witness the Wakefields swearing, and to find out a series worth of new drug deaths, affairs, secret crushes, and boyfriend stealing.

There were parts where I wondered whether the back story had already been written about in a Sweet Valley book that I hadn’t read, or if it was just bad exposition on the author’s part. But then I decided that if I didn’t want to ruin my treat I shouldn’t look too closely at the nutritional label.

It continued with no sign of letup until Alice Wakefield threw down her napkin and, louder than anyone, in a voice few had ever heard, stunned them all into silence. “Ned!” she shouted. “Bring out the fucking cake!”

How many times over the years had she herself been fooled by a recording? For just a flash she would think, Was that me? Or worse, when she had to pick herself out of a family picture. How pathetic was it not to recognize yourself?
