Editorial Reviews

Review

“If you’re of a certain age, you grew up with Elizabeth and Jessica Wakefield, the beautiful twins of idyllic Sweet Valley, California, who have been immortalized in hundreds of books and even a television show… finding out what happened to the twins and their inner circle, courtesy of narrator January Lavoie, was actually more exciting than my high school reunion…this adult novel stands alone as just plain fun…and really entertaining!” – Audible.com

“Overall, this was a fun story that will satisfy a thirst for all ‘Sweet Valley High’ fans of then and now. It had a CW feel, as I could see it fleshed out into a television series on that channel. I enjoyed it and found it easy to follow. I was thrilled to be reunited with characters I loved so much as a pre-teen.” – Chick Lit Central: The Blog

“I thought the audiobook of Sweet Valley Confidential was a fun way to pass time…I especially liked the audiobook format and how parts were divided up ‘regionally’ telling about what was going on in New York and Sweet Valley, back and forth…have a spring fling and just enjoy this one!’ – Bookin’ with Bingo

“Narrator January Lavoie lends life to well-known characters and ushers listeners with ease through this Sweet Valley reunion. Recommended for fans of the original series and those who enjoy family films or twin stories. This one will find a home in most public libraries.” – Library Journal

From the Back Cover

The Wakefield Twins—and the whole gang from Sweet Valley High—are back!
What terrible secret has torn Jessica and Elizabeth apart?

Ten years after graduation, the Wakefield twins have had a falling out of epic proportions. When Jessica commits a complete and utter betrayal, Elizabeth flees to New York to escape the pain and immerse herself in her lifelong dream of becoming a serious journalist.

“A perfect storm of decades past, and we are LOVING it.” —MTV

Jessica remains in California, dealing with the consequences of her heart-wrenching choices. She’s built a full life for herself but dearly misses her sister. With Elizabeth as her enemy, Sweet Valley is no longer the idyllic town of their youth.

“Compelling…frothy fun.”—Wall Street Journal

Jessica longs for forgiveness. But Elizabeth, always the “good twin,” can’t forget Jessica’s duplicity—and soon decides the only way to heal her broken heart is to exact sweet, sweet revenge…

I did expect something more but realistically I shouldn't have. The horrible inconsistancies are a trademark of all of the Sweet Valley series. Remember how Elizabeth and Jessica met Todd, the NEW boy in town in book #1 Double Love, but then he was in all the Sweet Valley Kids and Sweet Valley Twins books? How about this big one: Olivia Davidson dies in the horrible series changing earthquake at the end of junior year in high school and then is back alive and well in Sweet Valley University at a reunion? We should have fully expected this book to be a disaster of inconsistancies. I just can't believe I still care enough that it really ticked me off.

Here are the inconsistancies that most irked me in "Confidential". I won't list them all because that would pretty much be the full content of this book. Some may be slightly "SPOILER"-y.

- Aaron Dallas and Jessica ever much liked each other. Um, hello, they were THE couple most of the way through Sweet Valley Twins and they dated anytime Jessica needed a last minute date in High School.

- Jeffrey French was a weird DJ/Goth in Senior Year. They never should have changed his character that drastically from junior to senior year, but they did. To have no mention of that was odd.

- Jessica and Todd never happened until college? Um, hello Secret Diaries anyone?

- Steven is married to Cara Walker in "Confidential". There is no mention of the fact that she moved to another flippin' country in Sweet Valley High. Also not mentioned a peep is Billie Walker, Steven's live in girlfriend whom he dated in both Sweet Valley High and SVU. They even suffered a life changing miscarriage together for crying out loud and she never was mentioned.

I fell in love with these books when I was twelve, and even then, I held no illusions about the quality of what I was reading. The SVH books have always the Sour Patch Kids of YA fiction - there's no nutritional quality, but you know what you're getting into when you rip the bag open and dive in, so it's always exactly what you're expecting. They're brain candy, and sometimes there's nothin' wrong with that. When 12-year-old me cracked open a brand new SVH every month, it was a given that there were going to be ridiculous plot twists, lots of infidelity, wacky misunderstandings, Jessica behaving like more of a psychopath than Crazyface Margo yet incurring no consequences, and the sort of prose that makes you say "Christ, I've read fanfic more elegant than this."

So by all rights, I should have known what I was getting when I cracked open SVH Confidential. But the nostalgia was high, and I was dying to see where all these characters ended up. "How great," I thought, "that Francine Pascal was willing to do this for the fans."

About fifty pages in, it became painfully, upsettingly obvious that this book wasn't written for the fans at all. Please make no mistake: it was written to make ol' Francine a quick buck, and almost zero care was put into every aspect of it. Look, I'm totally aware it's kind of stupid to be mad about the quality of an SVH book, but to wit: there are TONS of typos in this book. Glaringly. Obvious. Typos. Either the copy editor spent that day napping or he's got a job at St. Martin's because he's somebody's nephew.

There are so many canonical details that were wrong, when researching the details is the sort of thing that would have taken about twelve seconds on Google.

I was a die-hard Sweet Valley High fan back in the day. In fact, several years ago I spent a decent amount of money on a big SVH paperback lot that I found on eBay, and once a year or so I dig them out (along with all my Baby-Sitter's Club books) and enjoy skimming through them while enjoying (several) bottles of wine.

Needless to say, I have been hoping for a "Where are they now?" SVH book for YEARS. Well, I finally got it. "Sweet Valley Confidential" came out today, and I spent most of my evening reading it in one sitting. And guess what? It was just as horrible as I thought it was going to be! Even worse, actually. I knew the writing would be awful, but I was not at all prepared for the way Francine Pascal completely butchered the lives of all these beloved characters. It is so bad, it's actually comical. The Elizabeth/Jessica situation really bothered me because this is NOT the way the Wakefield twins were supposed to end up!!! In addition to that, though, this book goes to every possible extreme to screw with people and completely change the life paths of every single Sweet Valley resident. Every possible scenario is enacted in this book, ranging from blatantly straight characters coming out as homosexuals to people's legs being chewed off by sharks. I am not joking!!!

In spite of all the ridiculousness, I award the book a whopping two stars, simply because of its fantastic comic value. To all you SVH fans out there, be warned that this book has the potential to completely ruin your favorite childhood series for you. Do what I did and view this book as a hilarious misstep by an author who hopefully wrote this book as a joke. If that was her intention, she definitely succeeded. If not, then Francine, please take my advice and make this your last book EVER!
