Book Description

If you were a teen during the mid-eighties to to mid-nineties, chances are you have read a Sweet Valley High book. You may have discovered them at your local library, their soft-focus, pictures of beautiful blond twins beckoned you. They seemed sophisticated, dangerous. You probably were on the cusp of starting high school and couldn't stop reading anything and everything about what high school was like. You dreamed of boyfriends, dances, adulthood!

If You Lived Here,You’d Be Perfect Right Now chronicles author and retro pop culture enthusiast Robin Hardwick rereading the entire series and document a grown woman's view of the angst and absurdity of the lives of the perfect Wakefield twins Each book of the series is revisited with equal parts sociological lens, parody, and sardonic nostalgia.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! 27 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It has to be said that unless you are a woman (probably) who spent her pre teen and teenage years reading sweet valley high books that you a) won't understand this and b) won't like it.

I loved it, I loved the wit of the author, I loved how as an adult, she made me remember those far off days when I wondered why my life wasn't as glamorous as the Wakefield twins. I loved the way she took every book apart and gave her views, it must have taken her years to write the book!

If you read sweet valley high and wondered why you didn't live that life, then seriously get this as an adult, you'll love her humour and dry wit!

4.0 out of 5 stars Only if youve read the series 15 Nov. 2013
By Rachel
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am currently re-reading the whole of the Sweet Valley High series and have enjoyed the reminiscing. I found this book quite funny and tried to read it in conjunction with each book the in the series and it pointed out some things to me that had never really crossed my mind. However, the continual use of bad language put me off it a little. It was quite unnecessary in places. However, the synopsis of the books and the way they were written in a variety of different styles made it enjoyable to read. However , you do need to have read multiple Sweet Valley High books to `get' this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must-read for diehard SV fans 27 May 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Excellent (and very funny) book summaries. Best bit was the suggestion of Jon Hamm for George Fowler.
Yes, yes, yes. DILF.

5.0 out of 5 stars Freakin Hilarious 4 Sept. 2013

Format:Kindle Edition
I just stumbled across this book and bought it on a whim and I am so glad i did! I laughed out loud from start to finish, i love the style of writing and the author's opinions. It was also a nostalgic nod to my teenage days of borrowing every sweet valley book from the library. would definitely recommend to anyone who read the sweet valley books back in the day.

I remember reading the Sweet Valley books as a preteen back in the 90s, now in hindsight I can see how cheesy the series was and how inappropriate Mr Collins is! This actually made me LOL several times, well done!
