Series: Sweet Valley High #2
Rating: 3 / 5 stars
Homecoming time has come! Surprise, surprise, but Lyla and Jessica have made the list for homecoming queen. The real shocker is that Edin and Elizabeth did too. Thinking they only got the nod because they are dating hot boyfriends, Jessica is determined not to let either one of them show her up. No matter what. Seriously, why hasn't one of her parents taken her behind a shed yet and beat some manners into this girl? If I had done a fraction of what Jessica has gotten away with, my mother would have had me kidnapped in the middle of the night and sent off to a boot camp in the woods to scare some sense into me.
Edin is worried about her past coming out, especially with her super jealous boyfriend (her first clue that maybe he isn't the best guy to be wasting her time with in my opinion). She confides in Elizabeth, and Elizabeth swears to keep it between the two of them. But secrets have a way of getting out, and all hell breaks loose in Sweet Valley. Except between Todd and Liz. They are too cute, even if he was a complete twat in the first novel.
Light and entertaining, Secrets is a quick read that further goes to show that Liz is the ideal teenager and Jess is an insufferable bitch who doesn't care about other people's feelings at all and only wants what's best for her. Again, I feel like all of us can relate these characters to people in our lives, even if it's been forever since high school (thank God).
