We find the gang right where we left them in Death Valley - stuck between a storm and a cave full of skeletons and scorpions. Things are getting desperate for the Sweet Valley Six, as they try and make it across the desert with nothing to sustain them but a few granola bars. Unsurprisingly, they all start losing their minds - especially Bruce. Yes, it's the infamous snake murder scene! Elsewhere Liz and astronomer (?!) Ken rekindle...

Welcome back to Death Valley, where the gold is cursed and the hiking teens have lost their damn minds! After the gang take a detour to find a second batch of gold, they decide they have to head straight to Desert Oasis. But Jessica tricks foolish Todd into taking them even further out of their way in order to find the third gold hoard! Consumed by gold fever, soon the gang are throwing their cans of food away to make room for trea...

Pack your rucksacks and fill your single water bottle, we're heading to Death Valley! Yes, having all placed highly in an essay competition which we can only assume some of them were forced to enter at gunpoint, the twins, Todd, Ken, Bruce and Heather are hiking through the desert without any adult supervision. It all sounds absolutely hellish and not just because Liz is in full good girl bossy mode. But the gang's squabbles are fo...

Don your curly blonde wig and bring your mauve blusher, Todd, Ken and Winston (or rather Tilda, Kendall and Winnie) are all dragged up and ready to sneak into the CHRLDR compound! Some really do like it hot, and Ken in particular is loving his delightful new look. He and Todd are determined to win back the twins - but will they get the sticky end of the lollipop? Meanwhile Heather's secret is out and the SVH girls are determined to...

Like Margo and Nora before her, Karyn has headed west to California so there's no new ep this week! But we do have the third installment of Anna's unhinged 2002 fanfic, From Here to Sweet Valley, which I think we can all agree is a more realistic depiction of the twins' adult lives than Sweet Valley Confidential. Liz reaches out to an old friend, Jessica has worrying thoughts about Bruce, and Winston attempts to flee his terrifying...

But after Heather encounters a familiar face at the cheerleading compound, things start to go horribly wrong....

Remember the Pom Pom Wars? Neither do we! Yes, it's been a while since we checked in on the rival Sweet Valley cheerleading squads but don't worry, we'll give you a quick reminder of the last book before we find out what happens when Jessica's new squad make their impressive public debut. Are you ready for a cheer-off? Meanwhile a lovesick Liz channels Margo, Mr Collins and Enid (they exist!) give sensible advice that is completely...

Don your blonde wig, pop in your blue green contact lenses, and have a little rummage in your portable Wakefield wardrobe, it's time to return to The Return of the Evil Twin! Nora and Margo have teamed up at last - and luckily the denizens of Sweet Valley are as dozy as ever because within days the Chapelle sisters are successfully impersonating the Wakefield twins. Have you learned nothing, Ned and Alice? The dynamic duo swiftly c...

We're back! And we're not the only ones making a grand return. Yes, it's been a year since we bid a fond farewell to our favourite psychopath, but back then we didn't know (and neither did the ghostwriters, because they're clearly just making this up as they go along) that Margo had a twin! Meet Nora, an orphan who discovers at her father's funeral that she has a twin sister who was given to an orphanage when they were two. When No...

It's Christmas! So to celebrate, we're breaking out the jingle bells and the (small) bag of cans and taking a trip down memory lane to discuss our favourite moments from the Sweet Valley High books we read in 2023. And what moments they were - from Bruce's visit to Dublin's most glamorous tourist attraction to the iconic Cookie Monster Werewolf's dramatic debut, from Young Executives to improbably framed photographs, a lot happened...

Having quit the cheerleading squad at the end of the last book, Jessica is facing an existential crisis. What is she if not a cheerleader? Luckily she won't have to find out. With Ken's encouragement, she starts her own rival squad, and a whole lot of familiar - and surprising! - names attempt to join it. Liz of course has no interest - but then Jessica, who has discovered her twin's sensational secret diary, makes her an offer she...

We're back in Sweet Valley High, and the tension between Jessica and newcomer Heather just keeps on building. The sneaky newcomer constantly undermines her co-captain - and it looks like most of the squad, newly obsessed with making it to nationals, are being won over by Heather's lavish gifts of megaphone pins and flashy new uniforms! When Heather boots two veterans off the squad, Jessica declares war - but will she win this battl...

Join us and special guest Amy Clarkin (don't forget to vote for her in the Irish Book Awards) to discuss the stupidest SVH thriller yet. When the twins inexplicably bring Nicholas Morrow along on their work outing, he meets a beautiful, constantly weeping girl called Barbara, who dresses like a Victorian ghost. They of course fall inst...

We're back! And it's time to get your pom poms out, because after all the ludicrous werewolves and creepy predator fiancés and fake kidnappings, we're back in Sweet Valley High itself for an old-fashioned cheerleading romp. Jessica's happiness at getting together with Mr Peanutbutter - we mean Ken – is spoiled by the arrival of glamorous new girl Heather Mallone. Heather's a cheerleading champion, and while the other girls warmly w...

Brace yourselves, listeners. No, seriously, brace yourselves. Because the first half of this book features references to things we never thought we'd see in Sweet Valley High. Things are getting hot and heavy between Jeremy, the scammer sex offender, and Jessica, the world's most gullible girl. As Liz and Todd head to the cabin to see if they can find any clues (if only the police had done the same), Jessica and Jeremy plan a trip ...
