Summary
"Every twenty- or thirty-something woman knows these books. The pink covers, the flimsy paper, the zillion volumes in the series that kept you reading for your entire adolescence. Spurred by the commercial success of Sweet Valley High and The Babysitters Club, these were not the serious-issue YA novels of the 1970s, nor were they the blockbuster books of the Harry Potter and Twilight ilk. They were cheap, short, and utterly beloved. Paperback crush dives in deep to this golden age with affection, history, and a little bit of snark"--
Summary
This rollicking ride through the history of paperback pre-teen series of the 80s and 90s reveals the stories behind the best-known books, including Pen Pals, Dear Diary, The Pink Parrots, Cheerleaders and many others
