The SVH books bring back a lot of memories. The one thing I didn't realize until I was older reading them now, they always talk about how Lilas father never being around. That is fine, but the twins parents never seem to be around either. If they are around, they don't have time for them. When they are home, it's always the girls making dinner or cleaning up while they are sitting in the other room. They didn't notice Elizabeth acting different in Dear Sister, they didn't notice Suzanne acting out in this book. They just aren't around to notice anything.

The fact that this book got such high reviews is too good to be true. It is well-written as far as word choice and descriptions go. However, the fact that no one has said anything about the absurdity in the book is beyond me. For one thing (SPOLIER ALERT) Suzanne accuses a beloved teacher Mr. Collins of sexually assaulting her. His reputation in the community is tarnished, and he is at risk of losing his job. However, there is no mention whatsoever of police involvement. The poor guy Mr. Collins doesn't even give his version of the story. He sits back waiting for his world to come crashing down and says he feels sorry for Suzanne. Of course perfect Elizabeth sets out to come up with a plan to make sure everyone knows the truth. That makes sense right? Sitting back and allowing your fate to rest in the hands of a highschooler to prove your innocence while not even mentioning how that twisted girl came on to you more than once. Then, we never really know what happens to Suzanne or with Mr. Collins. Did he win back his good standing in the community? Were Suzanne's parents or the Wakefield's told about everything she had done?

It was also annoying how everyone was always so quick to give Suzanne the benefit of the doubt in every situation. She may be attractive and seem really sweet. However, no one stopped to think WE DON'T REALLY KNOW THIS GIRL. SHE JUST CAME TO VISIT FROM ANOTHER STATE. Elizabeth thinks nothing of it when Suzanne is so eager to take her place babysitting in Mr. Collin's home, or the way she wanted to be the one to deliver something to him that Elizabeth needed to give him. No one thinks Suzanne is anything but flawless in every way. It isn't until after Suzanne causes upheaval and nearly ruins the man's life, Elizabeth finally thinks back on how Suzanne mysteriously almost "drowned" after swimming like an Olympian the day before to be rescued by Mr. Collins. Even Mr. Collins seemed oblivious to Suzanne coming on to him. Then, when he picks up on it, he doesn't do much about it. He was even about to drive her home after she tried to seduce him in his own home. Why didn't he call the Wakefield's house for someone to pick her up and tell them what she had done? He thought nothing of her threat she made when she left his home. He did not tell ANYONE what she did.

Then everything going on with Jessica was unbelievable. Suzanne's parents constantly leave her unsupervised in their home. Their idea of making sure she has a good time is asking their daughter's much older boyfriend to take her sight-seeing c'mon. They must be the most careless, inconsiderate hosts ever. Another thing is the way Suzanne's friends talk is too unreal. Just because they are rich, I highly doubt these TEENS discuss stocks and diamonds while sipping champagne like they're 35 years old. Being a rich teenager does not mean you do not have interests similar to those your age. It also doesn't necessarily mean you date adult men either. PLUS Jessica gets sexually assaulted in New York, and Suzanne's parents walk in on it. Again, there is no police involvement, they don't contact Jessica's parents, and Jessica doesn't even tell her parents or her own sister about it because she wants to keep up the act that she had a good time. Yeah, saving face is more important than speaking up about sexual assault right? Jessica gets assaulted, then it switches back to all the drama with Suzanne, then what came of the assault is just squeezed into the ending as if it isn't significant.

If heavy issues are going to be included in a story, they should be handled realistically.

Too Good To Be True is just too good to be true! It's an exellent book w/ a bit of flaws, but oh well here's what it's about:

Suzy is a beautiful, sophisticated girl from New York. Everybody loves her <33333. She's so sweet and nice! Yeah right, the truth is she pretends to be sweet and nice but she's actually a little witch on the inside (and every other word that ryhmes with it). TONS of guys like her, expect the one she like. MR. COLLINS. She pretends to drown in the picnic to have Mr. C save her! Liz needs to drop of some papers in Mr. C's house but Suzy glady offers to take them for her. When she does, she goes to the garden to find Mr. C gardening, she askes him for a drink out of the ho's, and purposley wet her shirt so he can see her bikini top. She later tells Liz she can take her baby sitting job, so Liz can go out with *sigh* Mr. Perfect Todd! When she arrives at Mr. C's she's all sweet and nice to Teddy (his son) but later she evil and comes out out a few plans. Finally Mr. C shows up, and she tries to kiss him, he say's no. Well

she tells everyone he raped her! Liz meanwhile founds the whole thing wierd?

Is it possible that Suzy is TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE? Read this book to find out!

-Only flaw is that Jessica was at NYC I would love to read about her being jealous of Suzy! Hehe, oh yeah the guy Jessica likes ignores her, until he tries to go to far, but you can easily tell Jess didn't mean ANYTHING to him!

I bought this book because of the cover illustration of Suzanne Devlin although I already knew that the Sweet Valley books were incredibly bad. Whoever ghost wrote this book did an above average job. The pretty brunette is a baaad girl and fools everyone in California while bad twin on exchange in New York is being treated with disdain by Suzanne Devlin's decadent friends. According to wikipedia, the character was later brought back to Sweet Valley and redeemed. Sweet Valley High books are incredibly terrible so I don't want to encourage anyone to read the books by this review but this book was unexpectedly okay. I learned the name of a style of gold necklace from reading it - lavalier. (I don't want one.)

I really enjoyed this book. It was well written. I have to say that Suzanne is a bonified, tried and true WITCH! I so wanted her to get in trouble with the law. She seemed so perfect and yet she was crazy. Sadly that happens all too often in real life ...

I would recommend this book to Sweet Valley fans though it is officially out of print.
