|Looking back at some of the covers. Errrrmmm...|
'Criticisms include: The twins and a majority of their high school peers being unrealistically beautiful, and physically perfect, without suffering from greasy hair, body odor, weight issues, acne and other typical teenage problems. However, Robin Wilson was overweight, Peter De Haven was described as having acne, and Betsy Martin had greasy hair.'
So, just like all of us, then.
On my trip down memory lane, I noticed that there have been further books published in the last couple of years - Sweet Valley Confidential revisits the twins ten years later, and it seems things aren't so rosy any more. In fact, Jessica's run off with Elizabeth's fella, so it's all kicked off. I can't help but wonder if this particular plot is in response to the criticism mentioned on Wikepedia. Whatever, I'm totally calling to the Spar for a Curly Wurly then hitting the sofa with this bad boy on my kindle.
