Sweet Valley High #52 White Lies, #53 Second Chance, and #54 Two-Boy Weekend

In Sweet Valley High #52, White Lies, John Pfeifer is worried about his friend, Jennifer Mitchell.  Jennifer has become involved with Rick Andover, who is a high school dropout who often gets into trouble.  Jennifer will not listen to anybody.

When Rick gets arrested, Jennifer believes that her father turned him in.  She is unaware that John was responsible.  At first, John doesn't plan to tell Jennifer the truth until he learns that she won't speak to her father, who has just become seriously ill.  If John tells Jennifer the truth, he will lose her forever.

This is a good book.

In Sweet Valley High #53, Second Chance, Kristen Thompson plans to become a professional tennis player.  She spends all of her free time practicing and competing.  Bruce Patman invites Kristen on a date, and soon, Kristen has fallen for him.  She must decide how to avoid endangering her tennis career while participating in normal teenage activities.

I enjoyed this book.

In Sweet Valley High #54, Two-Boy Weekend, Jessica throws a fit when A.J. has to go away over the weekend to a family gathering.  Jessica spends the day at the beach and meets Christopher, a handsome surfer.  She throws herself into a brief whirlwind romance with him, telling Christopher that the romance is over on Sunday when A.J. returns.

Christopher proceeds to stalk Jessica, calling her every night and following her around town.  Jessica becomes frightened as she tries to figure out how to get rid of Christopher without hurting A.J.

This story would have made for an excellent thriller edition, better than the stories that were used for the thriller editions.  What a wasted opportunity.

This is a very good book.
