Update 2/2018: The release date is now March 2019! (if you believe one of the Amazon listings below … the other has disappeared.)
Guess what’s available for pre-order on Amazon.com? The new Sweet Valley High graphic novel! Remember when I told you guys about this a while back? I’ve found two different 2018 release dates for it: April 24 for the library binding, and October 30 for the paperback version. Hmmm. If I had to guess, those dates will continue to change. Looks like the book is going to be 120 pages long. And, here’s the synopsis I pulled off Amazon:
When Jessica falls in love with her Shakespeare teacher, she begins to act like her studious twin sister Elizabeth to impress him. Now it’s up to Elizabeth to make sure that all’s well that end well – but with Jessica playing her role, will anyone be able to tell which twin is which.
Sounds typical! But will the Shakespeare teacher be Mr. Collins, I take it?! Is Jessica going to pull a Suzanne Devlin?!
I note that for whatever reason, getting information on this series seems unusually difficult. Remember all the fan-fare around the 2008 reboot of the series, and then later around Sweet Valley Confidential and The Sweet Life? It makes me wonder how involved with this particular project Francine is. She is not credited as the creator or anything on the Amazon page, and she hasn’t promoted it at all on her public Facebook or Twitter posts. *shrug* Maybe it’s too early for all that.
Here are the links to the Amazon.com pages:
