* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: Emily Mayer has spent the entirety of the book ''Nowhere To Run'' being verbally and emotionally abused by her stepmother Karen. Now, her baby half-sister Karrie is choking and her hysterical mother won't let go of her so that Emily can help her. Emily recalls that when someone is hysterical, the best thing to do is slap them in the face--and she does just that. Ostensibly, this was to save her little sister's life, but most readers chose to hope that deep down, Emily was enjoying getting a little revenge on her bitchy stepmother.

** Sweet Valley Confidential also has broken the base, since it's revelations about the current status of several major characters (most notably Winston and Todd/Jessica) was not what most fans wanted to see happen.

* DesignatedVillain: Conversely, Jessica is consistently portrayed as a bitch, even though she [[JerkassHasAPoint actually as a point]] on several occasions. Elizabeth blasts her for being horrible to Winston Egbert and not giving him a chance, but Jessica has made it abundantly clear that she does not reciprocate his feelings for her. And instead of accepting this and moving on, he persists in pursuing her. Who wouldn't be annoyed at that?

* BrokenBase: Some laud the Junior High and Senior Year series for showing a more realistic portrayal of teenage life - while others condemn the series as being boring, compared to the earlier series. Still others think that they might be perfectly fine YA series on their own, but with [[PutOnABus a lot of the major characters from the original series gone]], and [[ReplacementScrappy a whole host of new characters (who would never show up in any of the later series)]], they just [[InNameOnly weren't Sweet Valley anymore]].
