The new rich boy wore an ascot on a date. A freaking ascot.

This was garbage.

I loved it.
This book made me yell a lot. When Arthur was reading it to me, I was either yelling at Elizabeth to grow a pair and just tell stupid Nicholas that she doesn't want to go on a date with him...or I was yelling out what was going to happen next (all of these books are ridiculously predictable). As some of my buds may know, when Arthur reads these books to me, he gives each character a ridiculous voice. There was a great moment when Todd (French accent) and Nicholas (French Mickey Mouse) were havin ...more
One summer, I was stuck in a small town where the library had nothing good to read that I hadn't already read EXCEPT for the entire Sweet Valley High series. They completely sucked me in, although I think it's because I was very bored, and fascinated by the soap-opera americanness of Jessica and Elizabeth Wakefield's lives.

The Main Plot in 50 Words or Less: Follow-up to Liz's kidnapping, now she has to deal with the new guy's advances. Is she in love with Nicholas? What about Todd? What about Jessica?

The Second Plot in 20 Words or Less: Jessica uses her feminine wiles to get Randy, a computer nerd, to hack into school computers and change her grade.

The book opens right where the last one ended, with Liz's welcome home party from being kidnapped. Nicholas is immediately infatuated with Elizabeth, instead of Jessica
Liz finds herself struggling with a dilemma: does she accept a dinner date with a guy who has just moved into town or does she turn him down? Mind you, she has a steady boyfriend that she loves dearly, so you can see the problem. Being the super-nice girl that she is, she decides to accept. Of course, her decision nearly costs her her relationship with her boyfriend.

Although Elizabeth knows that Todd is the only boy for her, she agrees to go out with handsome, wealthy Nicholas. She later learns

As a pre-teen, I thought Nicholas Morrow was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. He doesn't hold up so well these days. What kind of idiot tells someone he's just met that he's in love with her?

Anyway, this is one of those books where perfect!Liz acts in a far-from-perfect manner and doesn't have to deal with any real consequences because she IS Liz, as opposed to Jess. She runs around behind Todd's back with the boy her sister is crushing on. Nice.

The most amazing part of Deceptions is the fact that Todd doesn't p
Elizabeth decides to go on a date with Nicholas Morrow after he continues to beg her. She starts to have second thoughts when Jessica says how in love she is with him and when Todd, her boyfriend, gets jealous when he sees him talking to her. She was going to tell Todd and maybe Elizabeth about the one time only date but after that she decides to keep it a secret. The date goes very well and Elizabeth tells Nicholas that she still only thinks of him as a friend. But on the way out Elizabeth sees ...more
I just can't believe I didn't enjoy the eighties more, you know, at the time.
I loved every minute of this series and I still do. One of those childhood memories that never leaves you. I loved going to the library to pick up a new Francine Pascal book, nothing better in the world.
