Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
It had to happen: Jessica and Elizabeth Wakefield, the darlings of Sweet Valley High, have graduated to swinging college life. Since Sweet Valley University is quite the party school, fun-loving Jessica fits right in. Not so the more somber Elizabeth, whose world begins to crumble right after she and her twin step into their dorm room. First of all, Jessica soon steps right back out, abandoning her sister when a popular sophomore asks her to move into her suite. To make matters worse, both Elizabeth's boyfriend, Todd, and her best friend, Enid, appear to have little time for her. It all adds up to a rather dispiriting picture, and Elizabeth spends an inordinate amount of time crying in her room--or buried in her books in the library. Faithful fans of the other series starring the Wakefields may not be ready for this sobering scenario--or for the inevitable issues of drinking (Elizabeth's conniving new roommate does) or sex (Todd wants to; Elizabeth refuses) that are common to the college experience. But there's also plenty of innocuous intrigue built into Pascal's plot, which--though it leaves some questions unanswered--may be resolved in the series' second installment, Love, Lies, and Jessica Wakefield . Ages 12-up. (Oct.)

I loved that Elizabeth had to find herself and her way. I have always thought of her as confident and always sure of herself. It was interesting to see her change both physically and emotionally.

I have read nearly every book in the series and I just decided to start over at the beginning. I love the new characters and more intense storylines...but I don't like the way Elizabeth was portrayed so negatively. I usually like her but she was so irritating in this book I was as fed up with her as Jessica was!

ok. the only bad thing in this book is todd and liz. why can't they just stay together. my opinion she should sleep with him. no harm done. but then todd goes and runs off with lauren hill. it should have been liz he ran off with.

This book was so Awesome, I think that these series are way better then the Sweet Valley High series. These series are more realistic. This book was so exciting the whole way through. If you never read this book before, then i reccommend you read this book.

I have been reading the SVH books for many years. One day I was in a used bookstore in my hometown and came upon this book. I decided to read it since it was the first book in the series. I wanted to know how different it was from SVH. It was a lot different. In fact it was better. College life with the twins is way cooler than high school life. I love the change of character personalities such as Enid, excuse me, Alex Rollins. And finally no more boring Liz and Todd! These books are great and you have to read them in order because they leave you hanging at the end of each book. I have read the first 12 along with two Thrillers. This is the best series in the world! I am addicted to the series SVU!
