Did you dream of having a secret identical twin so your life would more closely resemble that of Jessica and Elizabeth Wakefield of the "Sweet Valley High" series? A new exhibition, organized by pop culture-crazed Gallery 1988 and crafty website Hello Giggles, will honor the golden days of teen lit and fill that hole in your heart.
"Young Adult" is the newest exhibition from Gallery 1988, which tackles YA lit's most beloved characters; it will channel the "aesthetic and the nostalgic nature" of Hello Giggles, according to Gallery 1988 co-owner Jensen Karp. In case you are unfamiliar with this nostalgia-heavy style, the buzzy website is co-founded by Zooey Deschanel, the wonder woman behind one of the best quotes of 2013: "I want to be a fucking feminist and wear a fucking Peter Pan collar." We cannot wait to whip out the butterfly clips, chokers and gel pens and whine about how "Twilight" pales in comparison to the classics.
"Young Adult" will run from February 2 until February 23 at Gallery 1988 Melrose in Los Angeles.
Check out the works below and let us know which teen read is your guilty pleasure.
