The Story So Far: Books 11-20

Here’s what we’ve learned in the last ten books.

  • Suzanne Devlin is the devil.
  • Jessica was nearly raped by Suzanne’s boyfriend. No big deal.
  • Liz was kidnapped and tied up for five or six days. No big deal.
  • Nicholas Morrow is in love with Liz.
  • Liz still hasn’t learned that some promises shouldn’t be kept.
  • Tricia Martin has died of leukemia.
  • Jessica wants Steven to date Cara Walker.
  • Betsy Martin is now enrolled at an art school and seems to have turned her life around.
  • Roger Barrett is now Roger Patman, son of Bruce’s uncle Paul. He’s now rich and living with the Patmans.
  • Caroline Pearce has a boyfriend named Jerry and she seems to have stopped gossiping.
  • Regina and Bruce are in love.
  • Regina is currently living in Switzerland undergoing treatments that will hopefully make her able to hear.
  • Bruce has stopped being a complete asshole and is now only a partial asshole. This is due to the power of love.
  • Jessica and Lila were dating the same guy. He turned out to be a psycho who tried to kill Jessica. No big deal.
  • Enid was paralyzed for a while, but Liz helped her walk again by making Teddy Collins pretend to drown.
  • George has broken up with Enid to be with Robin Wilson.

I wish I knew these people in real life so I could punch them.

    I love how, in the world of Sweet Valley, the petty comings-and-goings of the cheerleading squad are WAY more significant than date-rape or attempted murder. Jessica isn’t fazed by almost being raped, but if a fat chick wants to be a cheerleader? OH HELLS NO.


  • Fear Street April 3, 2009 at 5:35 pm

    And I thought Fear Street was frustrating and ridiculous. These people are nuts.

    Bruce has stopped being a complete asshole and is now only a partial asshole. This is due to the power of love.

    Man, if only that happened to guys in real life!

    This is the greatest blog EVER. I wish i knew you so we could be friends. Because honestly? I love to hate these books but I’ve probably read most of them! Your descriptions are hilarious and i truly appreciate the genius of your sarcasm.

    Yeah it is amazing how much attempted date-rape is just seen as a pitfall of dating o_O maybe that is how it was in the 80s? I was a bit young to know at the time.
