Title: Playing Hooky
Tagline: How far will Elizabeth go to save her sister? [Raven: Not as far as Jessica, I’m sure.]
[Wing: Not sure Jessica would go any sort of distance to save anyone else but herself.]
Summary: Kent Kellerman, soap opera star, is coming to town. One whole episode of his show is being filmed downtown and Jessica and Lila have passes to get on the set. There’s one small problem. The filming is to take place during school hours. They’d only have to skip one little class…
Now both girls must face up to their punishment. For Jessica, that means no extracurricular activities, no Booster club, and worst of all, no playing in the basketball championship playoffs. Without Jessica, the team is sure to lose and she’ll become Sweet Valley’s most unpopular girl. That is, unless her twin sister, Elizabeth, agrees to save the day – and the game!
The cover is nothing more than a Circle of Predatory Grooming. Seriously, I thought the Adult Torso was actually handing the nameless twin a condom.
[Dove: To be fair, that’s what it looks like in the thumbnail.]
It’s actually a slip of paper or some sort. Perhaps our American Correspondent can shed some light on this arcane school tradition.
[Wing: American schools are truly bastions of safe sex education. Or really, he’s giving her a detention slip or something similar.]
