SVU #12 - College Cruise


This book is such a mess, I don’t know where to begin. The Sweet Valley University gang is going on a weeklong, college-students-only Caribbean cruise aboard the SS Homecoming Queen. I will rename it the SS STD. After all, if you took a ride on the homecoming queen at my high school, you’d definitely be aboard the SS STD. I imagine that on this college-students-only cruise, instead of mints on your pillow, you get condoms on it. Except in Liz’s room, of course.

Oh, and let me also mention this: The first 75 pages of the book are nothing but build-up, and the excerpt on the first page actually is the very last scene of the book.
