Sweet Valley High Is Back!

Forget Jedward, everyone’s favourite teenage twins Elizabeth and Jessica Wakefield are back, this time in their late twenties – in a new book by author Francine Pascal, Sweet Valley Confidential: Ten Years Later.

Unfortunately the cult TV adaptation, which ran from 1994 to 1997, hasn’t yet been revived. Hopefully the twins will see a return to the screen however, as Juno scribe Diablo Cody is rumoured to be working on a feature length version for a Sweet Valley High film.

Francine Pascal produced more than 150 SVH books during the eighties and nineties, detailing the exploits of sensible Elizabeth and mischevious twin Jessica. In the new book, Pascal explores more complex, adult themes, when Elizabeth discovers Jessica is having an affair with her husband, Todd.
