Coming Soon: Sweet Valley Ten Years Later

Between you and me, this is the best gift for us grade schoolers of the 1990s, who hid the books in their bags, for fear of getting confiscated, who smuggled the books in the library, and under the guise of reading larger books, devoured the adventures of Liz & Jess during free periods of reading time.

Call the series trivial and fluffy, but Sweet Valley will always have a soft spot in my heart, kind of like an extension of our circle of friends back then, since most of my classmates were reading the books and swapping titles was commonplace.

And really, from Sweet Valley Kids to Sweet Valley Teens to Sweet Valley High, it was as if the series grew up with us. Now we get a glimpse of what happens 10 years later—I hope it will be epic.

And I hope Steven Wakefield (hottie that he was and always will be) will make an appearance.

      Hey, thanks for visiting. This news spurred a long comment trail among my friends on Facebook. Guess we all got transported to the time we were silly 11-year-olds swapping Sweet Valley books. (Been reading the series since I was 7 and that holds true for most of my girl friends, so we sure were excited over the news.)

      I think the safest theme would still be wearing a piece of purple clothing a la the Unicorn Club. That or 80s or early 90s fashion. Haha.
