Identical twins Elizabeth and Jessica Wakefield don't always agree on things - until Brooke Dennis arrives at Sweet Valley. Both twins agree that she's horrible. She snaps at everyone who tries to be nice to her and she's constantly saying mean things to people.

To get even with Brooke, the twins invent a third lookalike sister whom they call Jennifer. Pretty soon all of Sw

Sweet Valley Twins books have a fine tradition of bullying, so there's no surprise at all to discover that the sixth book in the series involves the entire population of Sweet Valley Middle School ganging up on one girl. She's a new girl, too, which is distinctly reminiscent of book two, but this time the reason for the vendetta is not a pair of scary (read: old and disabled) grandparents, but rather the behaviour of the girl herself. This is what makes The New Girl a much better book than The H ...more

Brooke Dennis is the new girl in town. Her father works with scripts and other things Hollywood. Her mother had divorced her father and moved away, remarried, and is building another family. Brooke's attitude towards Elizabeth, Jessica and all the other students is extremely nasty. She is so nasty that even Elizabeth, the twin who is as nice as can be, agrees to a surprise that will put Brooke into her place.

The problem arises when Elizabeth uncovers the reasons why Brooke is so terribly nasty t

The new girl in question here is Brooke Dennis, the daughter of a famous Hollywood screenwriter as well as being a rather snotty brat. Jessica quickly comes up with a scheme to put Brooke in her place - the Wakefield twins are no longer twins - now “Jennifer” is their triplet. Even the good Elizabeth gets in on the plot! “Jennifer” soon becomes “Disgusting Dennis”’s only friend, and the whole sixth grade enjoys snickering about it. Elizabeth, though under the guise of “Jennifer,” discovers the r ...more

Brooke Dennis moves to Sweet Valley in this Sweet Valley Twins book. Brooke is really mean. She talks meanly to every student at Sweet Valley. Then the school wants revenge. All of a sudden the Wakefield twins go from twins to triplets, or so Brooke thinks they're triplets. This Sweet Valley Twins was very good. It shows that you never know what is really going on in someone's life and you should never judge a book by its cover.

Yay, catty, bitchy, 12 year olds who act like they're 17! Even the kiddie versions of the Wakefields are horrid. They're so pretty and perfect. Blech. Again, standard ghost-written kiddie series fare. I vaugely remember reading this one as a kid.

This one was sO sCanDaLoUS and had a pretty decent outcome, but the fact that hating your home life doesn't give you free rein to be an asshole should have also been incorporated into the moral of the story

But you can't expect that much from a story about privileged ass mayonnaise kids \_(ツ)_/

These were my favorites, along with the Babysitters Club in 5th-6th grade. I think my group of friends and I would take turns reading them and discussing. It was like our first book club!
From "Books I have read this summer" list I found at home in NJ, written in my 9-yr-old handwriting!

The first Sweet Valley book I ever read, and it's awesome! Oh my those twins could both be so mean!

My favourite book series when I was at primary school - what can I say, I'm a big kid who still enjoyed reading this one.

I can not think of a scenario that Francine Pascal did not cover in these books. I just loved them.
