Back in July, we were excited to report that Sweet Valley High author Francine Pascal was coming out with a new line of books about Jessica and Elizabeth Wakefield from the SVH book series.
Now, her new book Sweet Valley Confidential has been released, and everything in this book takes place 10 years after Jessica and Elizabeth's high school days.
As we said back in July, we don't want to give too much away, but we'll tell you that one of the girls DOESN'T live in Sweet Valley anymore AND they are NOT on good terms!
Here's what author Francine had to say about the revisited book series:
"This is the first time in history that a kids' book has made the leap into adulthood. And it's a very difficult thing because the people who used to read the books are people of importance, they're grown adults, and they have a certain ownership of 'Sweet Valley' because it was their adolescence. With the new book I hoped not to outrage them and I don't think I have. But I think I have surprised them in a lot of ways and I hope I have touched them."
Pret-ty inneresting stuff. And for those of you out there who aren't sold on revisiting Sweet Valley in book form, Diablo Cody will be bringing back Sweet Valley High, but this time as a feature film!
Sorry, Baby-Sitters Club fans! We wish we had something exciting to tell you guys too!
…At the very least, a blu-ray release of the 1995 BSC film can't be THAT far off….can it?
Are U pumped to return to Sweet Valley in book and/or film form???
