Get excited, kids: Sweet Valley High is back today! Sweet Valley Confidential re-visits Jessica and Elizabeth Wakefield at age 27. Jessica’s going through a divorce. Elizabeth is working as a journalist in NYC and dealing with the aftermath of her breakup with Todd. Oh, and the twins are estranged and haven’t spoken in some time. Still, I could never turn down a new Sweet Valley book! The preview posted on the book’s website promises that more of that guilty pleasure we all loved. Here’s an excerpt:
Like the twins of that poem, Elizabeth and Jessica Wakefield appeared interchangeable, if you considered only their faces.
And what faces they were.
Gorgeous. Absolutely amazing. The kind you couldn’t stop looking at. Their eyes were shades of aqua that danced in the light like shards of precious stones, oval and fringed with thick, light brown lashes long enough to cast a shadow on their cheeks. Their silky blond hair, the cascading kind, fell just below their shoulders. And to complete the perfection, their rosy lips looked as if they were penciled on. There wasn’t a thing wrong with their figures, either. It was as if billions of possibilities all fell together perfectly.
At least they’ve gotten rid of the twins’ “perfect size six figures”, right? And I guess they don’t share a red Fiat Spider anymore, either.
I’ll definitely be reviewing this later in the week. Also look for a re-release of books 1-3 of the SVH series, now bound in one volume, at your local bookstore!
