While patiently waiting the clock to strike five yesterday afternoon, I came across Book Page’s – a monthly book/literature review newspaper, Buzz Girl section. For ya’ll who don’t know Buzz Girl features the latest “buzz” on books. After reading an exciting piece about Nina Garcia (yes, judge of Project Runway among other things) releasing a book, I stumbled upon this:
“Sweet Valley Adults
In February, we told you about the upcoming prequel to the much beloved Baby-Sitters Club series, The Summer Before (out this month). And now, there is more good news for certain readers born in the ’70s and ’80s – Francine Pascal has signed a deal to publish Sweet Valley Confidential in early 2011 with St. Martin’s Press. The book will follow Elizabeth and Jessica Wakefield – and all of their Sweet Valley friends – into their late 20s and early 30s. No word yet if it will be a single book or the start of a series, or if the target audience will be teens or adults. Of the book, Pascal says, “I’ve had thousands of queries from fans over the years wondering what Jessica and Elizabeth would be like as adults…Well, Sweet Valley Confidential should givem them all the answers. And I can guarentee they will be very surprised. Actually, more like shocked. ” Will Elizabeth get back with boring Todd Wilkins? Are Jessica and Lila Fowler still frenemies? Will the twins still be a “perfect six”? We’ll have to wait until 2011 to find out.”
From April 2010 issue of Book Page.
