Is Jessica as grown-up as she thinks she is?

Elizabeth Wakefield knows her beautiful twin is more than a match for almost any guy out there. Most guys easily fall prey to Jessica’s seductive charms. But Scott Daniels, Jessica’s latest love, may be more than she bargained for. He’s much older and much more experienced than anyone Jessica’s ever dated.

When Jessica sneaks off

I was a little scared to read this book I mean what if it was BAD!!!!! I mean it says ALL NIGHT LONG!!!!! now when I look back........... dude looks like a PEDOPHILE
This is by far my most favorite Sweet Valley High cover ever. College boy Scott is obviously the bad boy (note the porn star mustache and shocking 'All Night Long' title). Sadly, the most exciting thing that happens in this book is Scott tries to remove Jessica's perfect size 6 red bikini top and then Jessica gets lost in the woods. Oh - and Liz ate two servings of pancakes, which may have bumped her up to a heiferish size 8.

I remember being very disappointed in the content of this book when I

Didn't Jessica's top just almost come off in book 3? New plot device please.

Basically Jess is slutting it up and then has to deal with an older mustached dude who pushes her too far. Oh and there's twin switching (of course.) Totally lame. But the next one...oooh, that's a doozy!

It was hard to put these down, it became my personal goal to read them all!!!! (said with an evil laugh).

This is one of the many early Sweet Valley books where a boy goes way past a girl's boundaries, doesn't care about her protests, and tells her off for leading him on because apparently going on a date with someone is agreeing to sex. In this one, it's particularly bad, because the boy in question has an eighties pornstache.

The All Night Long part only takes up the very start of the book, with the rest of the focus being on Liz pretending to be Jess so that they can both get jobs as tour guides

Jessica wants a college boy Scott Daniels, who is clearly too experienced for her. But, what Jessica wants, Jessica gets. In this case, she gets a whole lotta trouble too when she sneaks off to an all night party at a lake with college kids. She also puts her twin Elizabeth into a position where she must lie for her, cover for her, pretend to be her, and fight with her boyfriend Todd.

The only thing I will say about the book is that back then either date rape wasnt a meaningful subject or the au
Everything that happened with Jessica made me want to throw this book across the room, but since I had borrowed the book I was unable to do so.
But I will say that fight between Liz and Todd did kind of get to me after a while. I wanted them to make up pretty badly and was really happy when they did. I was surprised that I was so affected by it!
Curses, another reissue! Although I loved the added bit where (view spoiler)
Jessica should henceforth be referred to as the Virgin Slut, or perhaps the Slut Virgin. She runs off for a weekend with some college guy and his friends at a lake and ends up stranded after cock-blocking him and causing him to destroy her cellphone in a fit of rage. (Yes, another lame 2008 rewrite, apparently.) Then she guilts Elizabeth (who apparently is much more forgiving than everyone else you've met in the prior books) into covering for her and taking some test for her, which Elizabeth bom ...more
Jessica is a selfish jerk to her twin sister. Jessica is dating a college boy named Scott even though she is only 16 and her parents dissaprove. Elizabeth tries to warn Jessica that Scott is too old for her but Jessica doesn't listen. Jessica goes to a beach party even though she's not supposed to and gets left to find a way back home when Scott leaves her alone in a boathouse because she didn't give him enough of herself. Jessica makes Elizabeth cover up for her by pretending to be her. Elizabe ...more

Original for the Snark Squad here.

This is a book with a plot, and stuff, but clearly what you should know about this book is that it features one damn fine porn 'stache on the cover. What you should know about ME is that this made me entirely way too excited about life.

You're welcome, dear friend, for that close-up.

We open book #5 with Jessica checking herself out in a mirror. Again. Some more. It's practically tradition by now. She's asking Elizabeth if her outfit is sexy enough for her new,
I was an avid reader of SVH books a couple of decade ago and remember getting keenly involved in Liz'z and Jess's lives and petty troubles. But this one left me wondering why on earth I was that keen on the series. This one seemed contrived, cheesy, pointless. It didn;t give me the same pleasure I used to get earlier following the series. Maybe I've finally grown up (mentally, I mean)

I despise Jessica. Like, seriously she'll do things that we'll get her in trouble then she'll start blaming everybody. Well, because of her Liz and Todd got into a fight. Anyway, I liked the scene in the Surfing Competition, too. Too much confidence in yourself will bring you down. Off to the 6th book.

i took three pages of snarky notes mostly dealing with how my hatred of jessica was almost obscured by how truly awful this freddie mercury-looking rapist on the cover was, how much enid wanted to get into elizabeth's pants, what a bitch elizabeth was, and how todd wilkins probably had at least one jail sentence as a result of his inability to deal with any level of his own anger.

I remember having to special order this one because my local waldenbooks never seemed to have it in stock. I also remember thinking my parents would never let me read a book with such a scandalous cover. I remember thinking the word scandalous was very sophisticated, like that slutty slutty Wakefield twin.

Elizabeth's severe case of Doormatism finally flipped from annoying to amusing when she reached the point of berating herself for not having done a better job of taking a test AS JESSICA while her sister was busy with Rapey McPornstache.
Meanwhile Jessica reached glorious new heights of sociopathy, blaming Liz for the test results, for not making her stay in Girl Scouts when they were children, and accusing her of wanting McPornstache for herself.
Todd briefly grows a pair and tells off Liz for co

Title: All Night Long

Author: Kate William & Francine Pascal
Overall Rating: 3 Stars

Yes! A dramatic improvement on the last one, you want to know, because we discovered that Jessica has emotions and Elizabeth isn't perfect! I mean, Francine was giving us a touch of character development here and I am liking it. I remember book 6 very well, so lets hope it continues! In this installment, Jessica goes gallivanting

Bad. So bad.

OMG, Jessica is dating Pornstache from Orange is the New Black!!! Look, proof!!!

This book was so horribly disgusting, like the last one, but I had to give this a one star. Seriously, Scott is so gross. But I was so surprised the authors didn't take it all the way. It's weird that they really don't mention S-E-X in any of these early books. Oh yeah, they make out and Scott slips his hands down Jess' bikini bottoms, but that's it. **Trigger warning: Are you seriously telling me that t
I'm pretty sure I've never read this one before. Not much about it stuck out or seemed particularly deja-vu.

So this one had a really short time line: only a week. It started on a Sunday and was over on the following Saturday. Not that that's really relevant to anything, but I just thought it was neat.

This book was also over way too fast. Like, Jessica pretty much figured out that Scott was no good almost immediately. The bulk of the novel was then Elizabeth trying to cover for Jess, as Jess wait

I enjoyed this book very much. Jessica is dating a sophisticated college man. Jessica can normally handle any boy that comes her way, but she looses control over Scott and soon she is in big trouble. Elizabeth being the caring big sister covers for her sister, but is it worth loosing her love, Todd. In other news the Wakefield twins are not aloud near a motorcycle, ever since their cousin died in an accident. When Todd finally has the money to buy his dream motorcycle Liz doesn't know how she wi ...more

This was a fun holiday read. I found it quite refreshing that the premise on the book was over quite quickly and not dragged out over the entire novel. But it was lacking something of the gaudyness that you can normally rely on with these books. Or I'm getting immune.

It was entertaining in the moment but I feel it will be slightly unmemorable.

While one of the twins learns a hard lesson in this fifth volume, this entry in the series was also harder-edged due to sexual content and profanity. Proceed with caution.
May 23, 2016 Marna rated it it was ok  ·  review of another edition
This was super weird. There was no real build up or...conclusion, really....just. Jess almost gets raped (yet again) and doesn't come home. She is literally out all night long. Hence the title. Liz covers for her and the whole thing messily segues into the next book. Where Liz does something dangerous that her parents would not approve of...doubtless, in the most boring way possible.

So looking forward to that.
