Francine Pascal’s Sweet Valley High
I am a little too old for Sweet Valley High, but I have many friends that say this is THE teen fiction of the 1980s. One librarian friend and I used to debate the merits of keeping this series in the collection. She started taking pictures of teens with the book to “prove” that it was still the best series ever. Eventually, the 80s versions were retired.
In this episode, bad girl Molly is in a tailspin of dispair ever since Regina Morrow died at her party doing a bit of cocaine. She is grounded forever and is trying to put her life together. Of course this makes her vulnerable to the bad boy drug dealer, Buzz. (He is college aged!) Naturally, running away to Mexico with this guy sounds like a plan. Will this fix her problems? Stay tuned!
If anyone cares, I had that exact hair style back in the mid 1980s.
