Waiting on Wednesday: Sweet Valley Confidential

This is a weekly meme hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine. "Waiting on Wednesday" spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


Sweet Valley Confidential by Francine Pascal
Pub. Date: March 29, 2011


Goodreads says, "Iconic and 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.  While Jessica still lives in their hometown, Elizabeth has moved to N.Y.C. – and is looking for revenge toward her sister. What did Jessica do to cause the rift? Do they still wear matching lavaliere necklaces? Whatever happened to Todd Wilkins? And is Winston Egbert still a dork?"


*Ok, I'll admit it. I am definitely waiting on this novel.  I was a HUGE fan of these books when I was growing up and I think it would be very cool to find out what these characters are up to ten years later. When I was in elementary school/middle school, I started off by reading the spin-off series, Sweet Valley Twins and I'm pretty sure that's how I got hooked. I will also admit that I even had this board game.  I remember my friends and I playing all the time....no one wanted to be Enid!  Anyone remember Sweet Valley High?


*Check out the Sweet Valley High Board Game Commercial from 1989
It's pretty hilarious....Not sure the message it's sending young girls is very good, now that I think about it, but it was an entertaining game!  I had a hard time embedding the video, so click here to see the commercial.
