Bruce Patman and Regina Morrow in love? No one at Sweet Valley High can believe it. Regina is beautiful and shy, one of the nicest girls at school. Bruce is a real snob, and the only person he's ever cared about is himself.

Bruce Patman is actually in love—with someone other than himself. He's fallen for Regina Morrow, the rich, beautiful new girl, who is a recent cover model and the most inspirational of all the inspirationally disabled girls. (In case you've forgotten, she's deaf, but can read lips and speak perfectly. A nice, non-confronting disability that doesn't inconvenience anyone but her.) Now that he and Regina are together, Bruce has changed. He's opening car doors for Regina and buying her expensive jew ...more

Title: Head Over Heels
Series: Sweet Valley High #18
Author: Francine Pascal, Kate William
Overall Rating: 3 stars


We got the whole spiel about how perfect the twins are. SIGH. We were doing so well. *sweeps up confetti*

This one was okay, Bruce wasn't being a Prat-man (See what I did there) he was all in love, but of course Jessica has to make it about her and try to split them up. ANOTHER SIGH. Why can't anybody in this to
Bruce: Crazy good looking, insanely wealthy, enjoys teeny tiny bathing suits, and! now with feelings.

When Bruce Patman and Regina Morrow start dating no one can believe it! Bruce is known for his way of poorly treatment of girls and has left a long line of broken hearts, but when Bruce is known for his ignorance Regina Morrow is probably one of the sweetest girls at Sweet Valley High. Regina being both beautiful, smart and kind makes her extremely popular but what people usually forget is that she is deaf. But after many years going to 'special' schools, she has learned to expertly lip-read. So ...more
Is Sweet Valley really ready for a total 360 degree turnaround of Bruce Patman? Yes, I'm talking about him being selfless and actually caring for another person besides himself. At least, that's the impression I got when people learned of his relationship with Regina Morrow.

I liked her character, I truly do (wait for that mystery book concerning a mystery doppelganger about her) but why is she totally okay with people pitying her all the time? I'm sure a lot of hearing-impaired people got insult
Jessica Wakefield scheming? Well, then, it must be a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday or the 8th day.

Regina is a good character, but this book (and all the ones with her, really) are an insult to deaf people since Regina is deaf. No one in Sweet Valley (including Regina) has ever heard of Sign Language, and they always feel *so sorry* for her. As if she can't be happy and lead a normal life without hearing. So, of course, in this book Regina must go to Switzerland

I started reading the Sweet Valley High series when I was a Freshman but I never got past book #18. Some folks have told me I should pick it up again and continue with the series but I feel like that time is over - I just wouldn't be able to look at the characters the same way. (I'd probably spend all my time cursing them out for being addle-pated teenage dunderheads.) But I have fond memories of the SVH crew and I think I'll keep it that way.

Francine Pascal always my personal guru of awesome reading as a pre-teen. Love these girls. Loved these stories and the trials that they went through.
I am not going to take the time to add all of the sweet valley high books that I read in my life, but suffice it to say that there were a lot of them.
