[slow clap]

Thanks to everyone who contacted me about this. You all know me so well! People magazine has revealed the cover to Sweet Valley Confidential. I have to say, I like it. And St. Martin’s Press didn’t even have to bribe me to say that. I think it is a good combination of modern graphic design with a vintage look, and not such a literal translation. But great iconography representing the original series.

    You like the cover? In all its scarlet-woman-lavaliere-flashing-circle-art glory? While Winston appreciates the circle art, he also thinks that Liz/Jess looks a little less Wakefield and a little more Annie Whitman working a pole at The Shady Lady. Or Alice Wakefield on a “business trip” with Hank Patman. You get the drift.

    While Jessica still lives in their hometown, Elizabeth has moved to N.Y.C. – and is looking for revenge toward her sister. What did Jessica do to cause the rift?

    I just assumed she was still pissed about the Sam/England/scullery maid thing. :P

    Still, I’m dead curious to read the book now I’ve seen the synopsis. I’ll be pre-ordering it!

    But which is which. I can’t enjoy it until I know which is which?!

    At first I thought it was obvious…but the more I thought about it…I’m not so sure.

    I’m currently at Jess on the back thanks to the lips and “more coiffed hair” but really it could go either way…

      About the lavalier. Who in the world wears the same necklace 10 years later? I pre-ordered this book and I have yet to see it. WTF? IHW, when will you post your re-cap? I am just dying for the DB to re-open its doors once again!

    I really didn’t like this red cover. I find this pink cover much prettier and more vintage. The models look actually gorgeous.

    Shame that this book is complete and utter crap.
