It's Here! New Sweet Valley Book Released!

new sweet valley book released

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???

Travel Back To Sweet Valley

Filed under: TV News

If your were a girlie of the 80s/early 90s, you belonged to one of two camps: lovers of Babysitter's Club or Sweet Valley High.

If you were Team Sweet Valley, you envied the BSC girls for their fun trips and sense of fiscal responsibility. If you were a BSC girl, you envied the Sweet Valley girls because they were cooler. Period.

So for you, Sweet Valley girls, we bring you good news - the twins are back!

Francine Pascal has traveled 10 years into the future with the characters that made her a millionaire and is starting a new line of books about Jessica and Elizabeth Wakefield.

We don't want to give too much away, but let's just say things are not what they used to be for the girls. For one, they both don't live in Sweet Valley (GASP!)and as we understand it, they don't even like each other anymore! (Double GASP!)

The first of the new line of books, Sweet Valley Confidential: Ten Years Later, is set to hit the shelves in 2011.

Just goes to show you that a good franchise never dies! (Suck on that, Babysitter's Club!)
