#64 | LOST AT SEA

When the SVH gang set off on a science field trip to a remote island, Lila sneers at the non-luxurious boat taking them there - and our flat-faced queen's jibes are justified, because it doesn't take more than a few big waves on the way…

We had low hopes for this one given that it's another sports story but we were very pleasantly surprised! We meet basketball star Shelley Novak and her friend Cathy, the coolest person in SVH (give Cathy her own book, you cowards!). Will…

#62 | TWO BOY WEEKEND

#57 | AGAINST THE ODDS

Anna has previously claimed that this, along with the Liz in Switzerland book, is the most boring Sweet Valley title of all time, but we were pleasantly surprised when we got into the infamous story of Ronnie Edwards becoming a gambler. And…

#56 | MURDER IN PARADISE

It's Halloween! And that means a book that's special in more ways than one. Yes, you asked for it and we have delivered - it's super thriller Murder in Paradise! It's got a mysterious luxury spa! It's got a supervillain with a wandering…

#55 | OUT OF REACH

It's a first for Sweet Valley as a person of colour takes centre stage (literally). So of course the book has to be all about "Being Chinese-American", as Jade Wu struggles to balance her love for her family with her dreams of dance stardom…
