During my elementary and junior high school years, there were three series of books that I read with reckless abandon: ‘The Babysitter’s Club’, ‘The Canaby Hall Girls’, and ‘Sweet Valley High’. This was of course years before the Harry Potter and Twilight books hit the masses. These books were quick and fun reading and I particularly liked Sweet Valley High’s twins Jessica and Elizabeth.
Francine Pascal, the creator of the series, is returning with a book about the Sweet Valley High crew with ‘Sweet Valley High Ten Years Later: Confidential’. It takes place ten years after the book series ended. And is sure to be a instant best seller with the same crowd of us that used to read the books.
The new book will be in stores next March, and as a teaser to its die-hard fans, you can receive a sneak preview of the book via the first chapter of the book. I read the first chapter and I will have you know that the Elizabeth and Jessica we came to love are now two totally different people who aren’t close anymore.
Could this be a case of the good twin versus the bad twin?
I am very excited that my childhood is coming back to me in the form of a steamy book—only thing is we have to wait until next year to read. Womp womp!
