Francine Pascal is the creator of several bestselling series, including Fearless and Sweet Valley High, which was also made into a television series. She has written several novels, including My First Love and Other Disasters, My Mother Was Never a Kid, and Love & Betrayal & Hold the Mayo. She is also the author of Sweet Valley Confidential: Ten Years Later. She lives in New York and the South of France.
I was in middle school when I started reading her books. I haven't read all the books in her Sweet Valley series which is sad. I could only read books that my library provided and they didn't have all her books. I would remedy that by borrowing books from friends.
I loved Jessica and Elizabeth so much and I am so happy now that Francine is releasing another series about them when they are in their thirties. (;
I used to be so into the chracters that I didn't even try to remember the author's name. *sheepish*
I will further embarass nyself by telling you that I used to search Sweet Valley books online after I was allowed to use the internet and I wouldn't know the authors name:(
I wouldn't be able to find the Sweet Valley books even though they weren't available for online reading. I found the author's name only recently when it was announced she was releasing Sweet Valley Confidential's: The Sweet Life. (:
I am sooo excited. Now, it is just going to be a 6-book e-serial. I haven't read the Confidential Series yet. Yeah, I know, I know. I am slow like that.
Anyway, I posted about the first two books in the series in my last post. I will post about the last four books in the series in this post.
So, the third book in the The Sweet Life Series is titled Too Many Doubts. Given below is an overview from Barnes and Noble.
