Sweet Valley High # 3: PLAYING WITH FIRE by Francine Pascal; 2 editions; First published in ; Subjects: In library. Sweet Valley High #3: Playing With Fire. Here it is! The most pornographic and adult of all Sweet Valley books, with the notable exception of the.
Liz and Todd offer to take Jessica home for him, despite her protests. Bruce quickly agrees and pretty much shoves the three of them out the door. Which turns out to be extremely anti-climatic because it only involves her hitting him in the face with a piece of pizza before he stumbles backwards into the fountain that just happens to be behind his seat.
Jessica, I am disappointed. We all know you could have done so much better than that.
At the start of the book an agent approaches them at the dance competition, which they were performing at of course, with promises of making them super stars in LA. This results in the band going overboard with practices, spending every waking hour trying to perfect their songs and sucking all forms of joy out of their lives.
They promptly fire him and go back to playing high school gigs.
WTF In what world does this make sense? See, Jessica had always cheated off Emily in the past but, because Emily is the drummer in The Droids, she was also failing all the tests due to the increase in practices she was taking par tin.
So, after Emily finds the answer key to the next test in her lock, Jessica threatens to tell their teacher she has it unless Emily uses it and gets an A.
Because, as Jessica explains, if she gets an A on the test the teacher will totally know something is up. But Emily is smart so the teacher would be all whatever over her scoring that. Now, really?
Jessica involved multiple people, which upped the risk of someone ratting or being caught, along with making things way more difficult than necessary.
Did it never cross her mind that she could have simply memorized just enough answers to pass the test and could have totally bypassed Emily altogether? Or studied on the numerous nights she sat alone next to the phone waiting for Bruce to call? Morals of the Story: No one wants that. Final Thoughts: Anyways, as always, I absolutely adore feedback and love to hear what you think. Any suggestions are adored. I'm trying to be organized.

Facebook VKontakte Google. Sweet Valley High 3: I like the recap!
One small flaw: Off to go check the blog! Reply Thread. Somehow I just knew I would mix up the names somehow despite double checking. I've done it in all three so far, lol. Reply Parent Thread. Are you going to try to go through the series chronologically?
The first truly epic book in the series is book 7, Dear Sister. Jessica is my favorite inept sociopath. Also, LOL Robin.
LOL Yep so I'm blaming this on you guys! And I'm going to attempt to read the series in order, the libraries in my area seem to have a good portion of the original books covered. What I love most about your recaps is that you give me stuff to think about: Reading about poor Robin when I was younger, I didn't think much of the situation. Because it's been noted so many times how perfect the twins are, that I actually started believing it But I've re-read Power Play a few years ago for the nostalgic factors, and I've also read quite a few recaps I can't wait for you to read and recap it!
I'm getting excited to read Power Play because a few people have mentioned 'not wanting to spoil me' and alluding to it. LOL And thank you! I'm having a ton of fun writing them. I really like your recaps! More or less. Is it me, or does Bruce look like John Barrowman on the cover? I can't unsee it now. This was the first SVH book I ever read, in about The series was up to 28 or 29 by then.
I don't know which is worse--how they treated Robin in this book, or how they treated her in 4 , where this setup comes to fruition. I'd love to think things have improved since then, but now they seem worse.
It's really a sign of the times that in 84, I didn't think Bruce was all that unrealistic a character. And tennis was a much more popular sport in general. The sad thing is I think there still a lot of people like Bruce out there today.
Is this the one where Bruce uses the words "Roadhouse Rhoda"? I always thought he was such an annoying creep when I read the books way back. Well, that is, until he met Regina Morrow. But that's for another book and another recap.
Meantime, I agree that Jessica in normal sociopathic mode would have ripped Bruce a new one metaphorically speaking for trying to control all her options during dating. That was in the first book, I think. When rumors were going around the school that Elizabeth had been to the bar with the high school drop out guy. Cover Models: Bruce strangles Jessica while she tenderly touches his arm. Bruce's 18th birthday party at the end. Number of times "thirty-seven" or "a hundred and thirty-seven" was mentioned: None that I caught.
It's possible I missed it though. Also, Bruce is insane see below. Is Steven home from college this episode? Victim-O'-the-Week: Believe it or not, Jessica. Was Mr. Collins a perv? Subplot s : With a new hot-shot manager, do The Droids make it to the big time? Or will all the in-band fighting lead to a group break-up? Looking as handsome as a rock star, but dressed conservatively [ Has the writer ever seen the majority of rock stars?!
With conflicting emotions, Elizabeth had watched the scene unfold. Her sister did deserve to win, but it hardly seemed worth hurting Winston to get the prize. Even Jessica, who did very little studying but still got good grades in most classes , found it -- [ Jessica gets good grades?! You have got to be pulling the wool over my eyes. Are we talking B's or just a passing C? Winston studied Elizabeth affectionately.
But Robin We really don't have much in common, though. I get nervous around people who eat all the time. Just because someone might not be the "perfect size-6" that the twins are, it doesn't mean they stuff their face every second of the day.
Like you're a prize, jerk. And to think I actually used to like you. On the way up the graveled path to the club's entrance, Todd paused to admire a motorcycle parked off to the side. I don't think I'll ever understand what you see in these machines.
When I get my bike, you'll see how much fun they are. I didn't know SVH knew how. She's heading for a disaster. I can feel it, and if I don't find a way to show her what's really happening, I'm afraid I'll lose the real Jessica altogether!
Bruce turned around, ready to give her a good-morning hug. But he stopped when he saw what she was wearing. Jessica grew puzzled at the change in his expression. Bruce's scowl grew deeper. I just had it cleaned.
