Sweet Valley Twins grow up!

elizabeth.jpg

The 13-year-old in me just squealed a little (okay, a lot).

The Sweet Valley Twins, the uber-blond, uber-beautiful duo from the "Sweet Valley High" books, have grown up, moved to New York and will return in a new book in April 2011.

The new book is the second teen girl remake this year. Yes, I squealed over the Baby-Sitters Club prequel, too.

The Baby-Sitters Club, though, kept the girls at the same age, searching for a new 12-year-olds audience. "Sweet Valley High" will be aiming to tap into a nostalgia for the books published between 1983 and 2003.

The book's preview hints at sexual exploits, a bitter betrayal between the sisters and adventures in the Big Apple.

2011 may be the year of the twin: Diablo Cody, of "Juno" fame, is working on a screenplay for a Sweet Valley movie.

If you can't wait for the book or the movie, Twitter has stepped in to fill the void.
