Comments on: "Francine Pascal Quotes: I always loved reading. Growing up, my favorite book was 'A Child's Garden..."
When I first thought of the idea for ‘Sweet Valley High,’ I loved the idea of high school as microcosm of the real world. And what I really liked was how it moved things on from ‘Sleeping Beauty’-esque romance novels where the girl had to wait for the hero. This would be girl-driven, very different, I decided – and indeed it is.
I love ‘Sweet Valley,’ but I love it from a different angle. There are people for whom it is their adolescence. They own it, in a way that even I don’t. I’ve come to respect the project more because of the response than I’ve had. It’s more important than I realized it was. I didn’t understand the breadth and depth of it. now I’m beginning to more.
I get some of my ideas from watching my three daughters, but most of them come from my own memories of growing up. I can remember how romantic I was, not just about love, but romance in the classic sense – the romantic ideals: of honor and truth, of loyalty, sacrifice and fairness. Those were the elements that made a story satisfying to me.
