Sweet Valley High
All Night Long
Sweet Valley High series has been a long standing joke between a former colleague and I. She was a dedicated fan of the series and we often would tease her about her love of all things SVH and insist that the series was too old and out of touch for the teens of the early 2000s. She responded by sending Holly and me pictures of her teens that still loved the collection. Point made.
I picked out this particular title that floated through our donations and decided the guy on the cover was a Freddy Mercury look-a-like, and just kind of laughed at the very 1980s look on the cover. My rule of thumb with regard to teen fiction is that if it is still popular with teens, then keep it.
I have no idea if the SVA from those bygone 1980s are still popular with the teen set. I am guessing, with cover art like that, they aren’t hot sellers anymore. Besides, I know my former co-worker would have sent me a picture.
