For most of you, The Sweet Valley High series brings back many wonderful memories! In fact, many credit this series with initiating a long-standing love affair with romance, women’s popular fiction and chick lit books. These books truly epitomized what every young girl dreamed about -- perfect 17 year old twins, a beautiful California community, hot guys, bad boys, sweet cars, school dances and good old-fashioned kissing.
Fast forward ten years -- beloved identical twins Jessica and Elizabeth Wakefield are back and all grown up, dealing with the complicated adult world of love, careers, betrayal, and sisterhood in SWEET VALLEY CONFIDENTIAL (St. Martin’s Press), due out in March 2011. This new women’s fiction book, written by the original author and creator Francine Pascal, will allow millions of fans to return to the idyllic town of Sweet Valley (or even visit it for the first time!)
I'm sure you can imagine the excitement surrounding this novel from Sweet Valley Twins fans everywhere. Due to overwhelming demand, St. Martin’s Press is giving a sneak peek into the lives of Jess and Liz ten years later, releasing Chapter One of 2011’s most anticipated book online at SweetValleyTenYearsLater.com. If you can't get enough about the Sweet Valley Twins, you can also follow Sweet Valley Confidential on Twitter and on Facebook.
