Sweet Valley High: Double Love by Francine Pascal

The book is about twin sisters, Jessica and Elizabeth Wakefield, who end up liking the same guy, Todd Wilkins, wide receiver/basketball captain. Jessica is the cheerleading captain and always gets what she wants, especially the boys. Elizabeth is more of a schoolgirl; she writes the insider for the Oracle and does other extra activities for school. She is used to letting her sister get what she wants but when it comes to Todd Wilkins, she is not willing to give him up easily. Jessica deceives her sister, going behind back so Elizabeth will not know that Todd likes her. She gives Todd the impression that Elizabeth has all kinds of boys lined up to date her, to get Todd to like her, Jessica, instead. Jessica almost ruins Elizabeth's reputation, her relationship with Todd, and their sisterhood. Read the book to find out all the conniving things Jessica does to get Todd Wilkins and prevent her sister from taking him.
Gossip! Love! Lies! Rumors! Conniving behind peoples back to get what you want! Backstabbing! Drama! Revenge! Anything you like to read? Great book to add to your summer reading list!

This book was an interesting page-turner. I could not put it down. Some parts of the book were funny and very moving! I felt like I was part of the book and could imagine what was going on throughout the storyline. The storyline was like any basic teenage girl's life, friends or siblings liking the same person and struggling with everyday high school drama. The ending was GREAT and was the prefect way the author could have ended it! This is my favorite book I've read so far and can't wait to read the next book in the series.
