Francine Pascal is the international best-selling author of SWEET VALLEY HIGH. She currently has sold over 260 million books. Gaia Moore is her new, complex character, bursting on to our streets.
Gr 9 Up-A bump on the sidewalk in New York City sends Gaia on a quest to discover the history behind her parents' meeting, their unusual courtship, and her subsequent birth. The narrative moves from 2003 to 1973, using classified transcripts, handwritten journal entries, and remembered conversations. As Gaia follows the clues that a mysterious man leaves for her, she explores events of her past and tries to discover the secrets surrounding her birth and early life that now impact her daily life and adventures. This series continues to give readers a strong female character, intense espionage excitement, and, in this Super Edition, the love-at-first-sight romance of Gaia's parents. "Fearless" fans will find the answers to several of the questions that have plagued Gaia for the past 20 books, but they may have new questions. This latest installment will only draw more readers to this stylish, exciting series.-Lynn Evarts, Sauk Prairie High School, Prairie du Sac, WI Copyright 2003 Cahners Business Information.
