If you met a random construction worker who wore deck shoes, would you assume he was secretly a prince? No, you wouldn't, because you don't live in Sweet Valley, where everyone is a deluded fantasist! This week we grab our popcorn and enjoy the extreme drama and crazy scheming as Jessica Wakefield faces off against Lila Fowler in a battle for the heart of the mysterious Jack. Is he really a prince? (No) Will Jessica win his heart? (Also no) And will Liz discover the identity of the...

19: #19 | HEAD OVER HEELS
**EPISODE 19: HEAD OVER HEELS** Jump into 1BRUCE1 and fasten your seatbelts because it's going to be a bumpy ride through this bona fide Sweet Valley masterpiece! We've got Bruce and Regina in melodramatic love, a ridiculous carnival run by children, Todd and Liz being even more buffoonish than usual, Jessica failing to notice a huge flaw in her latest scheme, and some very incoherent stuff about Skye Morrow's psychosomatic headaches. All this and Bruce in tiny shorts! You can follow us on...
18: #18 | LOVE LETTERS
Why is Caroline pretending that she has a long-distance love? Well, she's basically been driven to it by the SVH wankers, who think anyone without a boyfriend is worthless. Meanwhile Liz and Jess are shaken when they're told that - gasp! - the Wakefields might have to say goodbye to their Spanish tiled kitchen and leave Sweet Valley forever! Join us in one of Sweet Valley's ten million Italian restaurants as we ponder how the Wakefields would fare in a big city where no one worships them,...
17: #17 | RAGS TO RICHES
Why do so many of the Sweet Valley shops have such ridiculously generic names (not you, Foxy Mama's, we love you)? That's just one of the many questions we ask in this week's episode, in which Roger goes from rags to (spoiler alert) riches. Can Olivia and her dangerously floaty outfits fit in with Roger's new world? Is there anything Jessica won't do to get a rich boyfriend? And why the hell is Todd so interested in Regina's comings and goings? We attempt to find answers. Also, the lime...
16: #16 | PROMISES
Welcome to Sweet Valley, where the town "bad girl" dresses like a nun. Literally - she has both the hair and clothes of Anna's old school principal. Join us as we marvel at the depths of Jess's sociopathy, discuss Winston 'Starch King' Egbert's hypocrisy, and ponder the Sweet Valley drinking scene. Don’t forget to subscribe on Apple Podcasts or wherever you get your podcasts and if you like the show, please rate and review and then spread the word down at The Dairi Burger to fellow SVH...
DOUBLE LOVE #10 | WRONG KIND OF GIRL
WRONG KIND OF GIRL Does Jessica hate “Easy” Annie Whitman because she reminds her of herself? That’s just one of the questions we ponder in our tenth episode. Jessica is outrageously monstrous even by her own standards (and has a fit of rage that’s almost too much for Anna), Ricky Capaldo accidentally invents the musical […] La entrada DOUBLE LOVE #10 | WRONG KIND OF GIRL se publicó primero en Headstuff.
DOUBLE LOVE #9 | RACING HEARTS
RACING HEARTS Do you care about the inner workings of the Sweet Valley High track team? Neither do we, but unfortunately there’s a lot about it in this book. Luckily we’ve got Lila being gloriously evil, Bruce prancing about in tiny shorts and a surprisingly convincing romance to balance it all out. On your marks, […] La entrada DOUBLE LOVE #9 | RACING HEARTS se publicó primero en Headstuff.
DOUBLE LOVE #8 | HEARTBREAKER
HEARTBREAKER Jessica is back to her old evil self in episode eight, Heartbreaker, as she plays games with poor old Bill Chase, a big eejit with a tortured past. Add a wildly unsuitable school play, a glamorous love rival for Liz, and a surprising amount of flashbacks and you’ve got some Sweet Valley gold. Listen to the […] La entrada DOUBLE LOVE #8 | HEARTBREAKER se publicó primero en Headstuff.
DOUBLE LOVE #7 | DEAR SISTER
We tackle one of the greatest entries in the Sweet Valley canon and it doesn’t disappoint. DEAR SISTER Liz goes wild, Jessica gets responsible, Todd cares about whales, Ned and Alice are terrible parents and Bruce uses his Old Timey Gangster powers for evil in the most dramatic book yet. All this and we come […] La entrada DOUBLE LOVE #7 | DEAR SISTER se publicó primero en Headstuff.
DOUBLE LOVE #6 | DANGEROUS LOVE
Put on your hot pink helmets (ahem) and hold on tight, we’re going on a wild ride in episode six: Dangerous Love! DANGEROUS LOVE Todd’s new Yamaha motorbike isn’t the only novelty in Sweet Valley as we are introduced to a wide range of characters who have never been mentioned before and will never be […] La entrada DOUBLE LOVE #6 | DANGEROUS LOVE se publicó primero en Headstuff.
Double Love #5 | ALL NIGHT LONG
It’s episode five, and we’re channeling Lionel Ritchie All Night Long as we discuss a book that doesn’t live up to its truly spectacular cover. Seriously, hardly anything happens in this one. But we’re diving in anyway, to talk about one of the most unattractive men in Sweet Valley history, the twins’ inexplicable desire to […] La entrada Double Love #5 | ALL NIGHT LONG se publicó primero en Headstuff.
Double Love #3 | PLAYING WITH FIRE
Playing with Fire is the first bona fide classic in the Sweet Valley series and there is a LOT to talk about, from Bruce and Jessica’s incredible dance skills and their close encounters by the cafeteria bins to the raciest moment in Sweet Valley History (yes, the b-word is used, though it may not be […] La entrada Double Love #3 | PLAYING WITH FIRE se publicó primero en Headstuff.
