Added DiffLines:

* AcceptableTargets: Good ''lord'' does Sweet Valley hate the overweight. They're portrayed as dumpy, shuffling, pathetic nerds who only want to be accepted by the Beautiful People who hate them. The worst example of this is Robin Wilson, who's tormented by the cheerleaders and is only accepted after losing a ton of weight, only to develop an eating disorder.

** Big brother Steve isn't much better. He's frequently a complete jerk to Cara, incredibly cruel at times--publicly humiliating her on several occasions--without any provocation or justification and cheats on her twice with girls who are the spitting image of his dead girlfriend Tricia Martin. Adding insult to injury, this is the only reason he's interested in them. But this all supposed to be OK, because, "Poor Steve, he just loved Tricia and misses her so much."

* DesignatedHero: Elizabeth Wakefield is purported to be the good twin who is nice to everyone - but, more often than not, she comes off as a meddling, sanctimonious hypocrite. As such, many find her to be even worse than the allegedly bad twin, Jessica.

to:

** And yet another beautiful moment in one of the super editions when Jessica blasts Elizabeth for her rudeness towards a new male character, telling her she's " the worst kind of reverse snob", truthfully pointing out that just because the guy is rich, it doesn't automatically make him a bad person.

** In ''Outcast'', a secondary character tells Elizabeth to "shove it". ''Also'' a thing of beauty for those sick of her self-righteousness.

* BrokenBird: Elizabeth, in Sweet Valley Confidential. Alone in New York, estranged from her sister and basically making her living sneaking into off-Broadway plays for a third rate magazine that reviews off-Broadway plays, and socially isolated from everyone, even the various one-night stands she has.
** Winston as well; in Sweet Valley Confidential, he's gained power and wealth and the ability to get revenge on anyone who ever tormented him. But he's lost everyone who ever cared for him and when Elizabeth rejects him for reformed former tormentor Bruce Putman, he kills himself.
* ButtMonkey: Jessica, of all people. Her schemes and stunts consistently blow up in her face, leaving her humiliated (though given her sometimes malicious intent, this is often deserved). Her genuine efforts at improving herself (music lessons, cooking classes) end up the same way. Virtually everyone, even her own parents, appear to blatantly favor Elizabeth over her--not until she runs away, TWICE, does it finally dawn on anyone how troubled she is. When she aces the [=SATs=], instead of congratulating her, everyone, including her own sister, assumes she must have cheated somehow. Speaking of which, Elizabeth herself frequently treats her like something she stepped in. And the few times she genuinely likes a guy enough to have a steady relationship with him, it never works out.
