#30 | ALONE IN THE CROWD

It's finally here - the greatest ever title, ALONE IN THE CROWD, and the best ever cover in the Sweet Valley canon. This books has got Elizabeth at her most patronising. It's got musical loner Lynne Henry writing a masterpiece and embracing…

# 29 | LOVESTRUCK

Will Suzanne succeed in changing Ken? He likes pizza and rock and roll, she likes fancy food and classic music, and according to the rigid rules of Sweet Valley you can't possibly like both, so you know things are going to go wrong.…

#28 | HOSTAGE!

It's another exclamation mark title! You know what means - drama, excitement and batshit insanity. And Hostage! doesn't disappoint, as Regina is kidnapped, her parents are held captive in the most casual kidnapper's lair ever, and Bruce,…

#27 | NOWHERE TO RUN

#23 | TOO MUCH IN LOVE

Following the last episode's bombshell revelation that we were feeling sorry for Jessica, we have another shock for you all this week: it took 22 books to get here, but we're finally reached a Sweet Valley tale with a genuinely healthy…

#22 | RUNAWAY

EPISODE 22: RUNAWAY Something very peculiar happens in this episode of DOUBLE LOVE. Something that disturbs us both. We actually - can it be true? - FEEL SORRY FOR JESSICA. Poor old Jess (I can't believe I'm typing these words) feels so…

#21 | CRASH LANDING!

It's been a while since our last episode of DOUBLE LOVE because we were off, you know, changing Ireland for the better. But now we're back, back, BACK, and we've got another title with an exclamation mark! That can only mean one thing:…
