The escapades of Jessica and Elizabeth Wakefield and their pals at Sweet Valley High entranced readers decades before Gossip Girl hit the small screen. Now the series is being re-launched with the re-release of the first two books, Double Love and Secrets. We're checking them both out!

Sweet Valley High #1 Double Love

Identical twins Jessica and Elizabeth Wakefield may look the same, but they're not afraid to [kwlink]assert their own personalities. Jessica is a cheerleader and ruthless go-getter while Elizabeth is a gentler, quieter girl who reports for the school's web site. But in Double Love, both twins seem to be falling for star athlete Todd Wilkins! The girls are in for the fight of the lifetime when they battle it out to win over Todd!

Sweet Valley High #2 Secrets

Jessica has positioned herself to be the next homecoming queen, but Elizabeth's best friend, Enid, is presenting some tough competition. Jessica gets the upper hand when uncovers Enid's dark secret, but is she ruthless enough to use it against her sister's BFF?

The Bottom Line

The SVH series was a huge phenomenon (it's even been referenced on The Simpson's and Veronica Mars) and it's set to take a whole new generation by storm. The outrageous stories are original but the text has been updated to include cell phones, e-mails, and blogs, which were unheard of when this series debuted way back in 1983. Check it out!

    I'm drowning in my own sorrow, I feel trapped in this dark place, Hoping for a better day tomorrow, I just need time and space, Or is it too late? My happiness has already been replaced, Now my heart is out for debate, Does anyone see ## ####? For gods sake, When you look in my eyes all you see is rain, It's my loss and Satans gain, Why am I letting him win? I'm not the type to ever sin! I'm breaking down, It's to late to turn this around, But what more am I really needing? I have friends and family that love me And in school my education is succeeding, It's so dark why can't I see? This depression is taking over me, This is a horrible sight, Is it all in my head? Taking medication every night, I can't sleep rolling around In my bed, "I can't take this I'm done fighting myself"  is what I said. This chemical imbalance in my head caused by fighting with oneself is taking over my health, Have I truly givin up? Playing this role is tough, Being happy I have learned to pretend, But faking a smile everyday is not enough, I try to think positive, But things pile up on me and become to rough, The story of my life is this the end? Stomach tied in knots, eyes bottled up, Now depression is my new best friend, I feel like I've been driving on the same road for days, and finally hit a dead end, I've never done anything to hurt anyone, this isn't fair, Someone help me is anyone there?!? I'm dying for help, Where is the warmth and light? These things to me are unfelt, There it is, I see the light, Standing here I sigh, As it comes towards me it's so bright, it's shining in my eyes and BAMM!  God has saved me once again, I get a second chance , For love and romance, My life is renewed, I get to start fresh start new, Now i can do things I never got to do, And its All thanks to you, My guardian angel sent from above, Here to guide me with all of your endless love, You were by my side this whole time. And guided me through , For that matter, Now and forever, I will always love you
