One of my girlhood guiltiest pleasures was Sweet Valley High, created by Francine Pascal. Pascal’s Sweet Valley Confidential holds the dubious distinction of receiving the lowest book rating ever. Nonetheless, my favorites in the series were the sagas – genealogies of the fictional stars. The first book traces the maternal line of the Wakefield twins, Elizabeth and Jessica. While I found some of it contrived (yes, even in girlhood, I thought it was contrived), I liked the idea of family story, their genealogy. I believe I went on to read the second book, which followed the story of Ned Wakefield’s , the twins’ father, side of the family tree.
