13: DOUBLE LOVE #13 | WHEN LOVE DIES
Get your hankies ready, everyone, this is a tearjerker. Well, sort of. Maybe. Join us as we head to the wrong side of the tracks (the roads are uneven!) with Steven Wakefield to discuss why dumping someone rather than telling them you're dying is never a good idea, and find out what happens when Liz and Jess become candy stripers and Liz joins forces with a TV star to plot a revenge plan that's ill-judged even by Sweet Valley standards.

12: DOUBLE LOVE #12 | TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE
**TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE** We're back! And there's a lot to talk about as this week Sweet Valley is shaken by the arrival of glamorous Suzanne Devlin. Is she, as the title suggests, too good to be true (spoiler alert: yes)? Meanwhile Jessica heads to New Yoik City to hang out with the '80s equivalent of Lena Dunham and her mates. And if that wasn't enough, there's also Winston going into full stalker mode, a missing lavalier and a scantily dressed Mr Collins. Oh yes. Don’t forget to subscribe...
DOUBLE LOVE #11 | CHRISTMAS SPECIAL: THE WAKEFIELDS OF SWEET VALLEY
CHRISTMAS SPECIAL: THE WAKEFIELDS OF SWEET VALLEY It’s Christmas! And we’re celebrating by sampling Jessica Wakefield’s trademark onion soup mix dip. What will the verdict be? Join us as, high on dip and Old Timey Gangster talk, we shake our sleigh-bells and take a trip through time to explore the lives of the Wakefield twins’ […] La entrada DOUBLE LOVE #11 | CHRISTMAS SPECIAL: THE WAKEFIELDS OF SWEET VALLEY se publicó primero en Headstuff.
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.
