    Did you read, and have a love-hate relationship with, Sweet Valley books in the mid-80s to late 90s? Do you also have an affinity for fantasy and horror? Then this parody is for you. The third in a series.The traveling carnival has come to Saccharin Valley, and Jessica and Elizabeth can’t wait to go. But when they get there, some odd things happen to the twins. Jessica, who can’t wait to have her fortune told, is warned by the fortune teller to stay away, and Elizabeth stumbles onto a mystery involving two shocking murders. Then the twins meet a sister and brother who aren’t what they seem. Does the fortune teller know more than she claims to? Will the twins fall under the evil spell of the carnival? Let’s hope so.If you’ve made it this far, you deserve a purple sparkly unicorn T-shirt. #3 in this series is a yet another horror-parody of books I used to read obsessively as a child and later realized were awful. The Fortune Teller combines elements of satire and horror... well, the horror is pretty tame, in true "Intermediate Reader" style. Also, this isn’t really a kid’s book. The original series were aimed at preteen girls, and this book is based on the particular series where the twins are twelve. So there’s no blatant sexuality or violence, because it follows the rules of the original series. BUT there’s some adult language, (ooh!) definitely some dark humor, and “magical” violence.
