You met them in high school and now Jessica and Elizabeth Wakefield are living THE SWEET LIFE – 30 years old and still gorgeous, blonde and enviable. But all is not so perfect in Sweet Valley these days and Elizabeth and Jessica are dealing with complicated family issues, heartbreak and career lows. THE SWEET LIFE (St. Martin’s Press; $1.99 per story episode) is a six episode E-only serial with stories released every two weeks this summer. Starting July 15th, Francine Pascal takes Elizabeth and Jessica through a new chapter in their well-chronicled and beloved lives.
"The Sweet Life" begins three years after the events of "Sweet Valley Confidential;" 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 with a popular blog, 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.
From Francine Pascal, creator of "Sweet Valley High" and author of the New York Times bestselling "Sweet Valley Confidential," comes the groundbreaking, six-part e-serial, "The Sweet Life," continuing the adventures of beautiful blonde twins Jessica and Elizabeth Wakefield and the gang from Sweet Valley.
