[sticky post] Admin: Recap List [Jan. 22nd, 2013|09:56 pm]

[Tags|, , ]

I would like to find a new place to host the list of completed recaps because ours is now too long for LiveJournal, and we can't add to it. I was making additions on the website for a time, but that's gone now too.

Books that have not been recapped are just numbers, have not been done (To save space, since LJ has a limit, I removed the TV and misc recaps--they can still be found in our profile--and I have stopped linking additional recaps of the same books.)

Please let me know if I am missing any recaps you've done or read!

Previously on Sweet Valley High: Sweet Valley and Palisades Big Mesa began their High School War. Jessica started dating Christian Gorman, the leader of the Big Mesa gang. Elizabeth continued to date Devon Whitelaw, who last week went all Lima Heights Adjacent on a BM guy who messed with his motorbike. Meanwhile, Todd went all Lima Heights Adjacent on absolutely everyone in sight, especially Christian, and got carted off to the big house. Also, we were introduced to a tertiary character who looked like Brad Pitt. I named him Brad Pitt, and I only mention this now because it feels like a good segue for a Brad Pitt screencap.

So worth it.

So many death threats, so little time.Collapse )

SVSY #4: I've Got a Secret [Nov. 4th, 2008|05:09 pm]

[Tags|, , , , , , , , , ]

This is my first ever post! I'm rather excited. I'm a young Sweet Valley fan, and I grew up with the later SVH books, as well as SVSY and SVU - and the Elizabeth series but they aren't really worth mentioning. After finding this community I decided to relive my youth (as in, what I read six years ago) and order in some books from the libraries in my area. This was one of them. I didn't recognise it all, but half-way through I started to remember the storyline and I guess that's the reason why this recap isn't too snarky - because I still have a soft spot for Jessica and Jeremy.

I couldn't find the right cover online so I took a picture of my library book. Please ignore the glare from my camera - I've forgotten how to turn the flash off.

So, I give you a (very long) recap of I've Got a Secret in which there isn't actually any secret...Collapse )*prays that LJ cut works*

Sweet Valley High Magna Edition: A Night to Remember Part 1

Okay. This is the first book in what might just be the most awesome eight-book arc in the history of YA lit. It contains death and car accidents and underaged drinking and manslaughter trials and a wedding and attempted murder and actual murder and riots and fake attempted rape and abandoned babies and serial killers and boyfriend stealing and fashion models and kidnapping and tearful reunions with long-lost parents and house fires and TV dating shows and gang warfare and, of course, a prom. It rules. I have all the books in this arc, so I’m starting at the beginning, with A Night to Remember. It’s a Magna Edition, so it’s longer than the books usually are, meaning the recap is too.  It was a little too long for one post, actually, so I've divided it in half.

In a nutshell: the Wakefield twins have an idea to hold a Jungle Prom at Sweet Valley High, with proceeds going to save the rainforest. As usual, Jess sticks Liz with all the work but wants to take the credit for herself by being elected prom queen. This time, though, Liz has had about enough of that arrangement and decides she wants to be prom queen too. The resulting rift between them peaks when Jess spikes Liz’s drink at the prom, getting Liz trashed and causing her to total the car, with Jess’s boyfriend in the passenger seat. At the end of the book, the paramedics say that it doesn’t look like anyone could ever come out of the crash alive. Also, Bruce has apparently decided that he really, really misses Heroically Deaf, Dead from Coke Regina, and he channels the resulting rage at Big Mesa High, being pathetic and doing everything he can to provoke a riot between the two schools at the prom, because rioting is balm to the soul. Also, Lila is dealing with the fallout of her rape escape (yes, a real attempted rape!) by going to therapy, and she winds up accusing her counselor of a fake attempted rape because of her poor coping skills. All that, and there are still seven books to go (two more magna editions and five that are regular length).

No B plot here. It’s all A+.
