‘Sweet Valley Confidential’ EXCLUSIVE: Listen To Chapter One Before Its Release!

The bad news: You still have to wait another 24 hours to sink your teeth into the sordid drama of “Sweet Valley Confidential,” the book that finds the notorious Wakefield twins 10 years older, totally estranged and living on opposite coasts after a mysterious falling-out. The good news: Thanks to this EXCLUSIVE clip from the audiobook edition, those who just can’t wait to find out how the new book begins can get a head start on the story right this minute!

This excerpt features a cheerful hello from series author Francine Pascal, and the complete read-aloud text of chapter one—in which we meet Elizabeth, now living in New York City and nursing an absolutely epic grudge against her sister. Of course, the cliffhanger ending of this sneak peek only leads to more questions: What horrific betrayal gave rise to the estrangement? Why won’t Liz answer Jessica’s calls? What does Bruce Patman have to do with any of this?!

Alas, we’ll have to wait to find out. But in the meantime, do enjoy the opening scene—in which Elizabeth ignores a ringing phone, hosts a gentleman guest and gets violent with a knockoff handbag.
