Synopsis: So the Wakefield twins have internships at the Sweet Valley News. Because high-schoolers go on internships all the time. 16-year-olds are barely allowed to work. I digress (already). Normally this is something Jessica would split all her ends about, but because the totally hunky (and age-inappropriate) Seth Miller works there, Jessica couldn't be more thrilled. Oh, and he's a crime novelist. Frankly, this seems more up Liz's alley, but she's infatuated with Jeffrey at the moment.

"Jessica’s heart was hammering wildly. She felt as if she was going to faint. It looked as though he was carrying a body."

Sweet Valley High turns super dark as they enter the thriller zone.

This was actually pretty good for something that was really cheesy. I mean, I know that’s the point but I wasn’t expecting much. It actually had a lot more into it than a lot of others written around the same time.

Just beware of the tall, blonde, and handsome.

In case you ever needed to know, this is the first of the SVH Thrillers. If you don't particularly like Jessica-centric books, you should avoid this one. Liz exists mostly to get things wrong and for a case of mistaken identity.

Anyway. It's summer and the twins are working at the Sweet Valley News, which makes sense for Liz, but not really for Jessica. You'd think they'd give that job to someone who might actually want it, which Jessica obviously doesn't. That is until Seth appears and Jessica f

The Super Thrillers always made me happy. I never wanted them to end and I always looked forward to them.

I REMEMBER THIS SVH MYSTERY WHERE ELIZABETH SAW SOME DUDE PUTTING A DEAD WOMAN IN THE BACK OF HIS CAR, AND NOW I WANT TO READ IT AGAIN BECAUSE IHNI HOW IT ENDED. LOL PROBABLY JESSICA ACTUALLY KILLED THE LADY AND GOT A DUDE TO TAKE THE BLAME, AND ELIZABETH IS LIKE "OH JESSICA" AND THAT'S THE END OF IT.

LOL IT TURNS OUT IT WAS JESSICA WHO WAS THE EYEWITNESS. CONVENIENT!

Jessica REALLY wants the hot mystery writer to notice her, and she thinks she has a chance when she and her twin sister Elizabeth get the internship they wanted, but then Jessica witnesses a murder and everything changes, with the wrong guy landing in jail. When too many close calls suggest the murderer is after Jessica (and Elizabeth too, since they look alike), the Wakefields have to use what he doesn't know against him to catch the real killer.

My pet peeves were hit one after the other in thi

This was my first and probably last SVH, but it was a mystery, so I might have the wrong impression about the series. There was lots of "long blond hair swaying" language, but this one had a murder. So that's why I'm giving it three instead of two stars, since I like murder.

Erm, reading about it.

Another adventure with the Wakefield twins. This time they are helping to prove their brother's friend is not the murderer the police think he is. I enjoyed this one a lot but I did figure out who the killer was pretty early on.
