Ahhh. Another day, another SVH book conquered.
Welcome to 'Drugs Are Just Bad, Mmmkay?' or SVH #41 : 'Outcast'.
This book is totally like an episode of Degrassi, ya'll!

Good cover! I swear Molly (the shunned one in front, yeah?) looks just like Scarlett Johannsson if you look past that godawful hair.

So. Unfortunately, our library does not have the previous book, On the Edge, in which Regina dies (from ONE hit of cocaine, but it's actually because she's nice and not manipulative, which means the b

From the previous book in the Sweet Valley High series, we learn that Regina is dead from trying coke (that was exacerbated by a heart murmur) at Molly Hecht's party. Instead of SVH alumni blaming Bruce for being the two-timing man that he is by dating Amy and causing Regina to run off into Sweet Valley's seedy underbelly, the school has instead chose to shun Molly as the "murderer" of Regina. Never mind again that most of Regina's friends were to blame since they didn't give the poor girl the h ...more

I read the early editions of Sweet Valley High when it came out in the early 1980s. Outcast was always one of my favourite books in the series, especially given the short-shift Molly Hecht received at the hands of her peers. I always hated that sort of thing happening to people like her, who was pretty much made a scapegoat — even by her PARENTS! — for Regina Morrow's death in the previous story.

It's a pity that Molly was just a one-off character; she had potential.

Wow, I barely remembered reading this book until I read a review of it over on the blog Forever Young Adult. Yes, I totally remember how that one girl died after trying cocaine JUST ONCE and how everyone blamed the other girl for it! Thank you, Forever Young Adult, for reminding me of this awful book.
Yes yes, drugs are super bad, but don't worry - Elizabeth the meddlesome meddler will forgive/rescue/redeem/meddle with you at the last possible moment no matter how ridiculous your behavior/rationale/life is. Oh, and Jess does something nice that her father promptly takes over responsibility for. We couldn't have two responsible Wakefield twins now could we?

Have I mentioned that I love these stories? Francine Pascal is just awesome. I had only a few options for great authors growing up and Francine Pascal was by far, hands down my favorite.

All books relating to Tragically Dead Regina are automatically win, IMO. They deal with tough subjects, like drugs! And drinking! And cheating boyfriends! And are KIND OF socially aware.
