Character Edit

Chatty and snarky, Caroline "Cee Pee" Pearce is the gossip of Sweet Valley and frequently finds herself embroiled in trouble in an attempt to gain information. She has lived in Sweet Valley for most of her life, with the exception of three years at the High School of Fashion Industries.[2] Caroline is recognizable by her frizzy red hair and the large bag of camera equipment she carries with her at all times in the event that she should witness something interesting. Caroline writes a gossip column for the student newspaper and eagerly tries to scrounge up juicy stories about her classmates. Because of her nosiness and willingness to reprint personal information, Caroline is disliked by the majority of the students. Her only true friend is Jœrgen , an exchange student from Sweden, largely due to a language barrier that keeps Jœrgen from fully understanding Caroline's gossipy nature.[3]

Caroline's interests center around her love of gossip. In addition to posting secrets about her fellow students in the school newspaper, she also enjoys baking, singing, and listening to opera. She works part time for a local private investigator who helps her learn new ways to obtain information about her classmates. In the Sweet Valley Twins books, she gains notoriety for making up false stories about other students when she fails to obtain any legitimate gossip. After she publishes a story claiming that Jessica Wakefield is dating biology teacher Mr. Wells, she is suspended from school for two weeks.

Caroline attempts to refrain from gossip for brief periods, most notably after several girls on the cheerleading team steal her shoes as retribution for a mean article, but she ultimately returns to her catty ways.
