Elizabeth wakes up from a coma after disobeying her parents and riding a motorcycle with her boyfriend, and of course getting in an accident. Jessica is so relieved to have her sister back, but something seems off about Liz…

Listen, Sweet Valley… I think it's time I stopped trying to rekindle our old romance. We had some great times, but I'm just not enjoying this anymore. Not even as mindless nostalgic escapism. I just…can't seem to turn off my brain long enough to accept the flat, cookie-cutter characters (did I mention that the spinoff Kids series actually has more complex characters than all the series' targeted at pre-teens and older?), or the painfully cheesy dialogue, or the contrived plots that hinge on people (especially adults) being as clueless as possible lest they keep the conflict from dragging on as long as possible.

I'm sorry, Sweet Valley. But I really need to move on. (though maybe not from the Kids series…that one's still ok)
