I read many a Sweet Valley reincarnations as a kid and even remember watching the TV show (and then rewatching it when it came to the library a few years back) that ran for four seasons.
This new title intrigues me. This is what I think Ann M. Martin should have done instead of her prequel. The idea of seeing the characters we grew up with now also all so all grown up... Well, I like it.
According to one site...
If you head over to the main site for this new book release, add your e-mail to their mailing list and you should be sent the first chapter of this release. I haven't received mine yet, but when I do, I'll let you know what I think of it!
Also, in case you weren't aware (like me), a movie adaptation is in pre-production. I'm sure the CW will be picking up a pilot next. :p
As a side note, lots of info can be found at 'Shannon's Sweet Valley High Blog' on not just this, but the entire series.
What do you think of all this?
