Product Description

Book Description

One of the most successful series of all time is back, and this time it's for adults

Product Description

It's been ten years since the Wakefield twins graduated from Sweet Valley High, and a lot has happened.



For a start, Elizabeth and Jessica have had a falling out of epic proportions, after Jessica committed the ultimate betrayal, and this time it looks like Elizabeth will never be able to forgive her.


Suddenly Sweet Valley isn't big enough for the two of them, so Elizabeth has fled to New York to immerse herself in her lifelong dream of becoming a serious reporter, leaving a guilt-stricken Jessica contemplating the unthinkable: life without her sister.



Despite the distance between them, the sisters are never far from each other's thoughts. Jessica longs for forgiveness, but Elizabeth can't forget her twin's duplicity. Uncharacteristically, she decides the only way to heal her broken heart is to get revenge. Always the 'good' twin, the one getting her headstrong sister out of trouble, Elizabeth is now about to turn the tables...

3.0 out of 5 stars Marmite for Sweet Valley Fans 19 April 2011
By Carolg
Format:Paperback
Sweet Valley fans will either love this book or hate it - I personally enjoyed it for what it was, a bit of a catch up on the lives of the twins who I had read so much about in my own high school years. Everything in the good old days in Sweet Valley, California was so impossibly perfect, give or take a murder or two, perhaps an affair here and there - well, fans will get my drift.

I think 'so what' if there are inaccuracies, bearing in mind the original series was around 150 books (I got too old before reading them all so think I stopped at about 101), with numerous spin offs about various times in the twins lives. Given that they were written by ghost writers there are bound to be inconsistencies - even in the spin-offs there is a lot of inconsistency about the characters.

Personally I like the fact that their lives haven't turned out perfect, it makes the fiction so much more interesting. It does make you wonder, however, who the calm and reliable twin really was - perhaps their relationships with men was the main difference between them. My personal pet hate however was the outing of a couple of major characters - doesn't make sense except to add unnecessary diversity to Sweet Valley.

A bit of fluff, although not perfectly written, just go with it - it certainly kills a couple of spare hours anyway.

3.0 out of 5 stars disappointing, weak and inaccurate 6 Jun 2011
Format:Paperback
I was a Huge Sweet Valley fan back in the day, I read all of the books including the spin off series' so imagine my delight when i discovered this, a new SV book after 8 long years! i read the reviews on here b4 i got the book so i was expecting some inaccuracies but i was shocked at how apallingly awful it was. Did Francine Pascal actually read any of the books b4 she wrote this one? it says at the beginning of the book she had researchers help her, well they didn't do a very good job, she should have let the fans do it, i for one would have volunteered my services for free!

Here are the errors/inconsistencies i spotted:

There were the obvious ones, Roger Collins' son was called Teddy not Sam and Lila's father was George Fowler not Richard!

. At Lila's party, Jeffrey French is there with his wife whose name Jessica can never remember but when he accompanies Lila to Jessica's wedding he has never been married! Did nobody proof read this book? Obviously not.

. Elizabeth claims she's never kissed Bruce while conscious but as i recall they had a fling in 'Almost Married'.

. Jessica says 'Caroline told everyone AJ Morgan touched my breast in 7th Grade' but how could he do that Jessica when if my memory serves me correctly he didnt move to SV until your junior year in 'Slam book fever'?

. AJ had short auburn hair, he never had long blond hair, dirty or otherwise.

. Jessica said she never liked Aaron but he was her BF back in 6th grade!

1.0 out of 5 stars Not up to standard 28 Dec 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having been a huge fan of Elizabeth and Jessica in my teen years, I was incredibly excited when I came across this book. Only to be completely dissapointed when reading it! I found that the writing style put me off. It switches between present day third person and flashback first person which I found ruined the flow of the book.

As the other reviewers have said, the holes in the character storylines and plots were ridiculous. I also felt that a lot of characters who had previously been adored, became quite unlikeable in this book. I am not against swearing in books however felt that in this book it was used a bit too much and did not seem necessary. As well, the constant references to blackberry, ipod, iphone, facebook etc seemed to be out of place.

For a reader who has never read any of the previous Sweet Valley Books, it might be an enjoyable read but for a fan I would say don't bother. I dislike giving bad reviews, as I managed to read the whole book but in this case I was thoroughly dissapointed!

1.0 out of 5 stars Yuck! Sullies my '80's Childhood Memories... 22 Jun 2011
Format:Paperback
Like many posters, when I heard this book was coming out I was really excited. As thirty-something, I was reading the original Sweet Valley High books in the mid eighties when I was a young teenager and was completely absorbed in this glamorous sunnny place which was worlds away from my real life growing up in the Midlands. Eventually I grew out of them so didn't read any of the subsequent follow-on novels and the TV series in the 90's wasn't my cup of tea so I've no idea about what happened after the twins left High School. Maybe the readers who rated this book more highly are younger and have read the subsequent follow-on books?
On the book itself, I must agree with the other posters as well that the writing in this is AWFUL - really, really bad. It makes me want to go up into my parent's attic and re-read the original series to see if they're as abysmal as this - I can't believe my teenage self would have been so taken in if the original books were this bad. The characters are so one-dimensional, and yes, the cultural and sexual references seem totally shoe-horned in, inappropriate and misplaced. I've finished the book but I think I'll try and disregard this and keep my nostalgic, '80's impression of Jessica and Elizabeth as this book honestly doesn't add anything to their story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Returning back to sweet valley high
This book is great for those in the 80's who read the sweet valley high series. It is more for the older reader, not for children.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blast from the past, into the future.
Hilariously funny because it gave me a chance to be a kid again, and see my childhood idol (Elizabeth, not Jessica (the bitch!)) as adults. LOVE it!
