Flashback Friday: The New Girl (Sweet Valley Twins, #6) Created by Francine Pascal


Children's Book SeriesThe Sweet Valley Twins book series is what made me an avid reader as a child. I couldn't get through each book fast enough. This book series is perfect for children between the ages eight and twelve, and I definitely urge people to introduce these books to their kids, especially those who aren't interested in reading. I wish they had been introduced to me a lot earlier. As part of my rereading my way through my childhood, I picked up The New Girl (Sweet Valley Twins, #6) created by Francine Pascal.

What I love about this series is that it always seems to deal with real life issues that children might deal with and teaches a lesson. In The New Girl (Sweet Valley Twins, #6), the lesson is that things aren't always what they seem and bullying isn't the answer. Kindness can go a long way, so don't act like a jerk towards people.

Rereading this book as an adult, I didn't remember anything about this installment going into it. I think this was one of the few times that I actually liked both twins within the same book. Usually, I would favor Elizabeth as my favorite character, but on rare occasion, I would like Jessica better.

I was engaged in this book, even as an adult because this series holds such a special place in my heart, and I was torn as I read it . . . I definitely felt for the twins because they didn't deserve the mean remarks from Brooke Dennis. At the same time, I felt bad for Brooke when we find out that her parents had gotten divorced. Because of this, she felt unloved and unwanted, so she was acting out as a result.

What's great about the endings in these books are that they typically show the reader a better way to go about things, and I do hope that kids who pick up this book, and any of the others in this series, really do learn a lesson from it. With that being said, The New Girl (Sweet Valley Twins, #6) wasn't one of my favorite books in this series this time around. I gave it three out of five stars.

Synopsis of The New Girl (Sweet Valley Twins, #6) When new girl Brooke Dennis moves into town and is snotty to everyone she encounters for no reason at all, Jessica and Elizabeth Wakefield decide to team up and invent a triplet. Soon the whole school gets involved in the Wakefield girl's practical joke.
