When Jessica commits what can only be considered a complete and utter betrayal, Elizabeth flees to New York to escape the pain and immerse herself in her lifelong dream of becoming a serious reporter. But her rift with Jessica is never far from her mind, and even putting 3000 miles between them can’t dull the pain of Jessica’s duplicity.

    " I know this book will be terrible but it takes me back to a simpler time, where twin blondes were very amusing to read about. I intend to totally quit real life for a few hours for this one. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Andrea | 2/15/2014

    " This was so bad. So, so, so bad. But I couldn't put it down. I was a big fan of the Sweet Valley High books when I was in 6th and 7th grades. I couldn't help myself and had to read this one. However, I can't understand why the twins are only "10 years older" when I am now ... OK, we won't go there. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kendall Green-El | 2/6/2014

    " I was so excited to read this book because I was a huge fan of the Sweet Valley High series. This book was so slow moving and boring. I rarely give up on books but I couldn't get into it at all. I borrowed it from a friend and she didn't even want it back. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jocelyn | 1/25/2014

    " This book was a huge disappointment! I was a huge fan of the Sweet Valley series growing up, and when I heard Francine Pascal was writing a sequel I was so excited. Unfortunately this book did not live up to its predecessors. Pascal's attempt to make the Wakefield twins modern and edgy totally fell flat, and was not at all what I was expecting. If you love the Sweet Valley stories, don't waste your time with this one. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stephanie Levy | 1/23/2014

    " It was a fun read and reminded me of when I first became a reader! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sara | 1/18/2014

    " A good beach read. A fun "blast from the past." Occupies about 3 brain cells! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Stephanie Hoagland | 1/11/2014

    " This book sucked hardcore, but it was pure Francine Pascal. After everything was said and done, my biggest beef with this book was that she made Jessica say "like" in every other sentantance of inner dialogue. NO ONE THINKS LIKE!!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erin | 12/4/2013

    " Same 'ole sappy an predictable Sweet Valley. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dana | 11/22/2013

    " cheesy but reminded me of my childhood :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Harmony | 11/22/2013

    " The general premise is a little far fetched but it was fun and nostalgic "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Leigh | 6/14/2013

    " I guess us readers of the old Sweet Valley series grew up, but the book didn't. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Beth | 6/6/2013

    " Even though I loved the series as a kid, this book is a DRAG so far, but I want to read it since it brings back memories. I think I'd rather go back and read one of the Sweet Valley High though! I find myself getting annoyed each time I pick it up!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stacy | 4/28/2012

    " A blast from my reading past that I couldn't resist picking up at the library. A little cheesy but a fun read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brandy | 4/18/2012

    " It was really weird reading this Francine Pascal book. At first I didn't like it but it grew on me and got better. Parts of it were believable and other parts weren't. I had a really hard time believing the whole Jessica and Todd bit. But I did like how Elizabeth wasn't such a goody-goody anymore. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brandy | 12/7/2011

    " This was not a great book but I still gave it 3 stars since it brought back fond memories of reading the SVH books as a child. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 7/2/2011

    " It was terrible, but awesome! I am hoping Ann M. Martin follows suite. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jennifer | 5/22/2011

    " Ruined SVH for me. Used to love them when I was a kid and now.. meh. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leeann | 5/21/2011

    " a little annoying to read at first, definetly got better in the second half of the book. It wasn't as easy of reading as I thought it would be-hard to keep the sisters sorted out! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 5/21/2011

    " This is as terrible as you think it will be, but it was entertaining. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 amita | 5/20/2011

    " i'm not ashamed. i read it. it was awful. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Andrea | 5/20/2011

    " At several points nearly had to put it down it was so bad! I read Sweet Valley High fanatically growing up, but seems there's a big difference between reading it when you're 10 and 27. That said, if you were a fan of the series, you can't help but try to get through it. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Allison | 5/19/2011

    " This book practically ruined the series for me. A series I couldn't put down as a teenager. The characters had no redeeming qualities, including the saintly Elizabeth. The plot was dull, the writing bad and the pacing so slow I had to force myself to finish it. Shame on you, Francine Pascal. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jenna | 5/18/2011

    " it was... exactly what i expected
    "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Aimee | 5/17/2011

    " Dreadful. Like other reviewers, I read Svh when I was a preteen and was curious to see what the adult twins were up to. I underestimated how annoyed I would be by the juvenile writing style...and then remembered that's why I stopped reading the originals. I had to force myself to finish it. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Naida | 5/16/2011

    " Uggggg. Disappointing & worthless I should've heeded everyone else & not bothered with this book. A major waste of time. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sara | 5/15/2011

    " I had to read this book as I had read the SVH/Twins books when I was younger. This book was beyond awful!! "
