Sweet Valley High



Thankfully, I got pulled into meetings before I could blog today. I was planning to blog about the philharmonic in prospect park which I went to last night (totally rad), but instead found myself inspired by Jessicurl & Randi's comments around yesterday's post.

Sweet Valley High. Me and Ang read all of these - loved the hell out of them. The one I remember the most, though, is number five, I think, where the sorta deaf teen tried drugs and had a heart attack. Anyone? Catherine I think was her name?? Looks like they made a show around these books later, but for girls in my generation it was just these books. Thank god for Francine Pascal.

I was OBSESSED with these books! Obsessed.
I especially loved when they began to put actual photographs of the twins on the covers.

Oh to be blond and play tennis.

I mostly remember that every opening chapter reminded us the Jessica and Elizabeth were a "perfect size six." And they drove a red fiat spider! Also, Jessica was kind of a slut.

And oh my god can we DISCUSS the mustachioed fox in image 2? I'm totally tempted to stay out All Night Long with him, yo.
