PersonalityEdit

Elizabeth Wakefield is the sensible one, and often has to bail her twin out of trouble Jessica got in due to her impulsive nature. She loves reading and writing and dreams of being of writing professionally as a journalist one day. Elizabeth is often called Liz by her friends and often calls Jessica 'Jess' who in return calls her 'Lizzie'. Elizabeth is smart, sometimes shy, hardworking, organized, caring, kind, sensitive, conservative, romantic, quiet, considerate, pretty, popular (in her own way), and sweet. She doesn't get in much trouble and wears casual clothing. Elizabeth often has her hair in a ponytail or in a different up-do, rather than having her hair down. Elizabeth cares about her friends and family, and will go to great lengths to help them out.

Elizabeth was kidnapped in Sweet Valley High Book #13 and was a traumatic experience for her. Liz is a true friend and does well in school. She writes the Eyes And Ears gossip collumn for the school newspaper, The Oracle. Elizabeth's favourite drink appears to be root beer, as she often orders it in Sweet Valley High. Elizabeth is often studying and always makes time for her friends and her sister. Elizabeth has a hard time saying no when Jessica wants her to bail her out or do the dishes for her when it's not her turn. Elizabeth can't stand bullies and snobs. Elizabeth worked as a volunteer candy stripper at the hospital in Books #12 and a brief period in #13. Liz used to do ballet dancing in Sweet Valley Twins, but wasn't as good as Jessica. Elizabeth's favourite author in Sweet Valley Twins was Amanda Howard.

RelationshipsEdit

Her best friends in Sweet Valley Twins are Amy Sutton, Julie Porter, Maria Slater, and some others, while her best friend in Sweet Valley High is Enid Rollins, (and when she returns to school, Maria Slater) another good friend is Cara Walker; and is close friends with Regina and Nicholas Morrow in SVH, too. Elizabeth is close with her family and her mentor is Roger Collins, her english teacher and The Oracle's advisor.  Most of her other friends were fellow staff members of The Oracle, most notably, the paper's editor, Penny Ayala; staff cartoonist, Abbie Richardson (who was, ironically, a former friend of her sister, Jessica); Allen Walters; Jeffrey French and one of her closest friends, arts editor, Olivia Davidson.  For a while, John Pfeifer was also a friend, until he pursued a vicious (and ultimately fatal) vendetta against her sister's best friend, Lila Fowler.  She later unbent around Lila and are civil towards one another, although they aren't that close.

Todd WilkinsEdit

Elizabeth had her first kiss in "Sweet Valley Twins" and it was with Todd Wilkins, who is her boyfriend in Sweet Valley Twins and all of "Sweet Valley High". They've often cheated on one another. They stop dating at the beginning of the "Sweet Valley University" series but remain friends. There have been many ups and downs in the relationship, with some arguements and break ups, but in the end, things have usually worked out. They've been through just about everything together, perhaps more than she's been with Jessica. They broke up in high school over her affair with Devon Whitelaw, but she herself left Whitelaw when he showed his true colors. Elizabeth wanted Todd to take her back, but felt he could never trust her again.  

Elizabeth and Todd were back together in "Sweet Valley Confidential" and headed for marriage, but ended for good when Elizabeth found out about Todd's affair with her sister. Todd wound up married with Jessica while Elizabeth was their maid of honor.

Sweet Valley HighEdit

Liz is 16 years of age. Liz's dream is to be a writer and she was a dedicated staff member of her school newspaper The Oracle in which she wrote several features stories. She considered Oracle editor in chief Penny Ayala, arts editor Olivia Davidson, cartoonist Abbie Richardson; and, for a brief period, sports editor John Pfiefer amongst her closest friends. Staff advisor Roger Collins was her mentor. Although Liz has many friends, her best friend was Enid Rollins and later Maria Slater, a close friend from middle school. Her first boyfriend and her first love was Todd Wilkins. At the insistence of her twin sister, Liz pledged and was accepted into Pi Beta Alpha, but she considered herself a member in name only.

Liz was close to Regina Morrow and her brother Nicholas, which was unusual, since she usually doesn't like to mingle with the wealthy, finding many of them to be selfish snobs. However, their sincerity swayed her and they became two of her closest friends. She was the recipient of Nicholas's affections when he first moved to Sweet Valley, but she insisted that she loved only Todd and the two stayed good friends. Regina's death affected her deeply, particularly since they had fought the last time they spoke.

Other friends of Liz's include Julie Porter, whom she also knew since middle school; and Caroline Pierce. She initially had little time for Jessica's friends although she and Cara Walker developed a friendship after she began dating Steven. Liz tolerated Lila for Jessica's sake, and even sprang to her rescue when Lila was arrested for shoplifting. She unbent more towards Lila after she was nearly raped by John Pfeifer; and was firmly on her side during the nightmare. Although she still didn't get along with her, Elizabeth and Lila did become more civil towards one another.

After Todd moved to Vermont, Liz began dating new student Jeffrey French, a photographer for The Oracle and star of the soccer team. They broke up when Todd returned to Sweet Valley. Elizabeth got back together with her first love and first boyfriend. The couple stayed together for a long time, until the Jungle Prom when a jealous Jessica spiked Elizabeth's drink to keep her from winning Prom Queen. The alcohol led a drunken Elizabeth to get into a car with Jessica's boyfriend Sam, ultimately leading to his death in a drunk driving accident. After they work things out, Elizabeth and Todd get back together and are a couple again. At the end of the series she was torn between old flame Todd and sexy bad-boy Devon Whitelaw, who turned out to be a liar and a coward. She broke up again with Todd in the last book of the Sweet Valley High series, Aftershock.

The Secret Diary Super Editions reveal that Liz had secret flings with two of Jessica's boyfriends, Ken Matthews and Sam Woodruff, although both relationships occurred before Jessica began dating them.

Elizabeth and Tom have a serious relationship; their most serious challenge comes when Elizabeth tells Tom that his recently discovered biological father has been hitting on her and he refuses to believe her, causing their breakup. After her split with Tom, she finds comfort with Todd and the two revive their former feelings for each other to some extent. This ends when Todd's ex-girlfriend is diagnosed with cancer and he decides that he must be with her. Tom and Elizabeth get back together again once he learns she was telling the truth, but irreparable damage has been done to their relationship. They would face their second challenge when William White, a man whom Elizabeth had dated a while back, but ended their relationship when she learned the truth of his racist and psychopathic nature. She had exposed him as the leader of the secret society and he relentlessly stalked her to no end. Elizabeth soon discovered that William was alive the whole time and used the Virtual Reality Fair to win her back. She eventually sees this and manages to escape him just in time to reconcile with Tom.

She would eventually patch things up with Enid, although they're no longer as close as they were in high school. However, Enid tried to be a supporting friend when her relationship with Tom was on the rocks.

During sophomore year, Liz endures a tempestuous relationship with her roommate, Sam Burgess, which later turns into romantic involvement.
