Elizabeth makes the paper (shocker!) and so does Anna and Salvador. Elizabeth notes how natural it feels to her when Salvie wraps his arm around her shoulder. I bet you all can see where this is going ... If not, get some glasses!
In this book, Jessica catches Lacey SMOKING. OHMIGOD I had no idea teens actually smoked. Yikes! In SV world, its got to be a sin somehow. Lacey also calls cheerleaders "lame". Truer words were never spoken lol
That night, Liz has a newspaper meeting and her and Salvie are assigned to work together stuffing envelopes or something lame like that. Somehow, of course, Liz gets newspaper print on her face and it smears and Salvie leans over and wipes it away and they have a "moment". Like a sexually charged moment where their eyes lock all romantic like. Urgh. Where's Todd Wilkins when you need him?
Soon enough there is another schedule thingy with brilliance. It says things like at 6:25 PM, Jessica and Mr. Wakefield .. blah blah blah ... One interesting thing I did learn. Tim is not a BF of Anna Banana's mama but rather Anna's DEAD brother. Boy, do I have egg on my face!
Salvie gets tickets to see a band and The Dona (he calls his gramma that for whatever reason) tells him to take Anna. Instead who should he call but ... LIZ?! Who didn't also see that coming. This book couldn't be more predictable if it had been written by one of the Wakefield twins themselves.
Lila and the Unicorns stand up Jessica at the movie theater. She's all wounded and embarrassed. Poor girl. Meanwhile, Liz and Salvie are on their "date" and Salvie is lying about Anna not wanting to come to see the band. When he didn't even ask her. What a toad!
Even worse is that Anna was supposed to hang out with Stupid Salvador and he didn't bother informing Anna even cryptically that he would be busy. The sole funny part of the book was Anna seeing him and Liz together and dousing them with her bottle of Gatorade. Haha. Couldn't happen to two more bratty persons.
To wrap up this long review, I'll give you the short of it. Lacey and Jessica make peace, Anna and Elizabeth and Salvie do too. Of course the ending was really supposed to be a cliffhanger but just left me feeling gross. Sal and Liz are not meant to be, not even close. And Liz thinking this makes it all the more clear:
I hoped Salvador was sighing because he was bored. And not
because he was wondering what it might be like to be in a darkened room on a
couch alone ... with me.
OOh Liz has got the 'mones as my mom would say. HOROMONES. They had always been so latent and I guess now these writers were going for a more mature Liz but damn, she annoyed me making googly eyes at Salvador with Anna just on the other side of the couch. I do not see this ending well. I like Anna now so Liz better watch herself! Salvador can piss off. He's annoying, an annoying little turd.
Overall, this book pretty much sucked so I am being extremely nice by giving it a 2 out of 5 stars. Hope the next one is better.
Stay tuned for more SV reviews and shit-giggles soon!
