This is the Sweet Valley book that the movie Single White Female threw up all over. It’s all about Isabella Ricci (I keep wanting to call her Isabella Rosselini, something about the name & the short hair), with a little Jessica thrown in for good measure. Firstly, though, um, although I’m aware this book is a blatant rip-off of it, I actually haven’t seen Single White Female. Stop throwing things at me! I'm tempted to just read up on it on Wikipedia or something, but then my references will be fake and stilted (and possibly innacurate). So we’ll have to go over the similarities in the comments when those of you who’ve seen SWF read this. Here be the cover:
PS: Don't even LOOK at the below poll until you read the recap!...I would have put it in the LJ cut but it wouldn't cooperate.

Is Lisa an evil, heartless killer?
Yes, clearly - she left her sister to die and killed an innocent kitten. Plus she had those weird 'black moods'.
Sort of - she was mistreated by her family and had some remorse for her actions, but she did some unforgivable junk.
No, it wasn't her fault - her sister's dying was an accident, and her parents' abuse made her loony. Insanity is a legal defense!
