So when my mom moved a couple of years ago, greatly downsizing where her and my grandmother lived, I had to make a tough decision. What did I want her to do with all those damn Sweet Valley Highs. To the hubby's everlasting chagrin, I decided I couldn't get rid of them yet. Recently my mom has started shipping me all the things I said I couldn't give up (gack! what was I thinking I would do with all this stuff??) and so my Sweet Valley High collection landed on my doorstep in a huge Tupperware.

Obviously the boys were endlessly amused by them, Cheddar more so by the book case, and we were pretty sure we were going to come home to Baxter sitting up on the couch, feet sticking out, deeply into the Sweet Valley Saga (one of my faves). Dilly, in her big sister way, disdained to involve herself. Pff! girly reads. She's definitely a Stephen King Fan.
The funniest discovery of this whole enterprise? Sweet Valley High is still going strong! That's right, not only are they in reprints with much less dated covers but low and behold there's a new release due out March 29th!! Sweet Valley Confidential: Ten Years Later!! Apparently it's an Adult novel for all of us who are looking to reminisce about an old favorite read.
Man, I think I need to buy that book.
