Sweet Valley High

Meet Elizabeth and Jessica Wakefield. Tan, blonde, All-American and blessed with perfect size six asses. If you read any of these books when you were younger, chances are you remember Liz being perfect and Jess being fun. How cute to be young and naive.

Liz is actually a nosey doormat and Jess is a psychopath. With that in mind, join the Snark Ladies as they navigate the world of Sweet Valley High, a place where there is a dance every week, people get kidnapped all the time, comas are not quite as rare as you’d imagine, and we call on the Youth Mauling Bear to come regulate quite often. Because they deserve it.

(S: It’s really rude that they don’t anticipate and respect our erratic blogging schedule.) Elizabeth Wakefield is enjoying her It’s Really Cool You Aren’t Kidnapped Anymore Party and a young man named Nicholas Morrow has just arrived.

Okay, here we go. I haven’t read a SVH book in about 15 years, but I do remember that I was slightly obsessed with Jessica because I am a complete and utter nerdy Elizabeth and I thought Jess was SO COOL DUDE.

Marines: If nothing else, I hope this experiment changes your mind about Jessica because that bitch is CRAZY.

Laura: One paragraph in, I’m immediately told the girls have large blue-green eyes! As if I could ever forget. And Tricia is dying, for realz this time.
