Sweet Valley Recap: Books #71-80, + SVH Saga #1: The Wakefields of Sweet Valley and Super Star #4: Olivia’s Story

14 Apr

Another ten-ish books down, Gentle Readers.

This section of books saw: a beauty pageant, a talk show appearance, a drug-ring sting operation, a historical account of the Wakefield family, tons of parties and dances, the introduction of Sam Woodruff, another Christmas vacation, lots of loss, drug use, anorexia, and much, much more.

Let’s break it down, shall we?

Estimated Time Elapsed: Something like 37 weeks

Major School Events:

  • Love in Bloom Dance
  • Dirt Bike Rally
  • Beauty Pageant
  • Huge track meet
  • Charity Ice Cream Event for Cheeleaders
  • SVH talk show interview
  • Photography club

Major Wakefield Family Events:

  • Elizabeth and Jessica get a new car – a Jeep!
  • Elizabeth joins the photography club at school
  • Jessica is briefly kidnapped by a criminal
  • Jessica wins talk show guest spot
  • Jessica wins Miss Teen Sweet Valley

By the Numbers:

  • # of guys Jessica dates: 3
  • # of guys Elizabeth dates: just Todd, I think
  • # of life-threatening situations: 5, at least
  • # of dances: at least 3
  • # of parties: at least 8
  • # of deaths: Tons, but virtually all happen in the past
  • Major Holidays: Christmas, again

I can’t wait to see what kinds of crazy shenanigans the twins and their friends get up to next!
