Remember Sweet Valley High?


My name is Casey and I am a Sweet Valley High junkie.

I was a HUGE fan of the series created by Francine Pascal in 1983. The books, about identical twins Elizabeth and Jessica Wakefield, hold a special place in my heart. The numerous ghostwriters who actually wrote the books used their words to create incredible visuals in my head; I loved the detailed descriptions of the twins’ looks, their rooms, their friends, their clothes. The characters and storylines are beloved memories of my childhood and adolescence.

Then…I grew up. I still have my original books, but I didn’t read the other series about the Wakefield twins in junior high and elementary school. I didn’t watch the TV show. Series creator Francine Pascal continues to publish compelling YA lit; her series Fearless was featured in 2001 on YALSA’s list of “Quick Picks for Reluctant Young Adult Readers.”
