Double Love (Sweet Valley High) by Francine Pascal: A Book Recommendation

Double Love

Double Love by Francine Pascal

Welcome to Sweet Valley High, where you’ll meet twin sisters, Jessica and Elizabeth Wakefield. Even though they’re identical, they have completely different personalities.

Jessica is someone who always gets what she wants, whether it’s with her friends, school, or boys. She’s very determined, and nothing can stop her from getting what she wants.

Elizabeth, on the other hand, is someone who always gives in to her twin sister. She doesn’t see any point in fighting over small things like lost earrings or petty problems. She’s always been the one to step back and let Jessica have her way.

However, when it comes to football star Todd Wilkins, Elizabeth is feeling a little unsure. She’s never had to compete with her sister before, but now she’s not sure if she should let Jessica take the lead. It’s a new experience for both of them, and it’s anyone’s guess who will come out on top.

After all, she told herself, if Todd preferred Jessica—and that certainly was how it looked—she would not stand in the way. She’d do the decent thing. Die.

If you’re giving Double Love as a gift, here are a few things to consider:

The vibes are emotional and frustrating with a touch of humor, with a fast pace. You can devour Double Love in just an hour or so.

It’s the perfect book for anyone who’s interested in twin dynamics, 80s nostalgia, and stories set in sunny California.

Permission to judge a book by its cover!

The original covers of the Sweet Valley High books were actually paintings which were then converted into the iconic book covers.

In the 90’s the books were rereleased with updated covers featuring the stars of the Sweet Valley High TV show. If you happen to be a collector there are several iterations of each book.

You can see that @saraneyauthor has a copy with the original artwork but in a newer edition with brighter complementing colors.
