The Wakefield Twins of Sweet Valley High Are All Grown Up


The Sweet Life eSerial ( by Francine Pascal has introduced a brand new chapter in the lives of famed blonde twins Jessica and Elizabeth Wakefield, and fans can’t get enough of the soapy, edge-of-your-seat stories.

About The Sweet Life
For Jessica and Elizabeth, the sweet life begins at 30…
Beautiful blonde twins Jessica and Elizabeth Wakefield are back in The Sweet Life, now available in one volume!

Three years after the events of Sweet Valley Confidential by Francine Pascal, Elizabeth and Jessica Wakefield are back in Sweet Valley and inseparable once more. Things are looking up for both twins: Elizabeth is a star reporter at the LA Tribune, and Jessica’s PR career is on the fast-track. But while the professional lives of the Wakefield sisters are secure, their personal lives may be in jeopardy. Jessica, now a mother, finds that managing parenthood, marriage, and a job is harder than she expected, while Elizabeth and Bruce must face a scandal that could strengthen their bond…or tear them apart forever.

Meanwhile, life goes on in Sweet Valley. Families are made, hearts are broken, and . . . Lila Fowler is a reality TV star? Some things never change.

The Sweet Life, first published serially as digital originals chronicling the continuing adventures of Elizabeth and Jessica Wakefield, is now available to read in one volume!

The 411 by Maria:

I must admit, I have never read a Sweet Valley High book. Yes, they were wildly popular in the 80's and have over 150 books to their name but I was in college and anything with the words "high school" simply didn't appeal to me but after reading Sweet Valley Confidential I may just have to see where the sisters started. So we meet Elizabeth and Jessica Wakefield who both are living very different lives at the moment and each dealing with the curves that life has handed them.

Since I have nothing to compare this to, I will say that it is a guilty pleasure and if you think YOUR life is bad, pay a visit to the Wakefield twins and rejoice in how normal your life is. While it isn't a great literary masterpiece it does entertain and keep you reading. I was interested in finding out if Jessica's boyfriend is the "aggressive" man he has been made out to be by one of his young interns. 

There is so much going on here. Fake pregnancies, plagiarism, rape accusations, kid napping, cheating, adultery, Reality TV and more.

Give it a chance. You may just find yourself sitting up late into the night like me to finish the massive 416 page book. Come on, I don't have time for 416 pages but I made time!
