If you read Sweet Valley books as a kid, you'll enjoy this novel. It's strongly plot driven, and it's like a soap opera, but it's classic SVH. The story starts off slow, rehashing the first several books in the series leading up to this ending, but then it gets juicy. Identical twins Jessica and Elizabeth aren't speaking to each other, which allows their evil look-a-like Margo to sneak into their lives. Margo plans an elaborate murder to takeover the identity of one of the twins. Will the twins make up in time to figure out Margo's evilness? Dun dun dun! Well, of course, they do because then there wouldn't be any more Sweet Valley books after this. This is written better than I had expected. ( )

The Evil Twin pretty much marks the end of traditional SVH. Or maybe it's actually the start of the mini series, but it's easily the most memorable of the entire series.

Margo finally makes her move in her attempt to take over Elizabeth's perfect life. The twins are estranged, so Margo sends their parents out of town to further alienate them.

I know I can't be the only one who wondered two things:
1) Why didn't Margo choose Jessica? Her impersonations of Elizabeth always left people feeling like she was Jessica anyway. Was it that she wanted to be the good girl, but with bad girl benefits and didn't see Jessica as good enough?
2) What if she'd actually managed to kill Elizabeth? How awesome, and disturbing, would that have been?

Why have I not reviewed this before now? This is an awesome book!! I've read (on Amazon) some people say that this storyline was too unbelievable and stupid, but I thought it was wonderful. This book is the conclusion of the mini-series in which a young woman named Margo becomes obsessed with taking over Elizabeth's life... by killing Elizabeth! The plot is awesome, as is the final showdown! ( )
