    When I win the lottery, I am going to send a copy of The Evil Twin and Return of the Evil Twin to every book snob on Goodreads so they can love SVH and hate themselves for it.Get over the fact that the concept for the first book was absurd, like the twins are Barbie and Margo is Midge so all she needs for a watertight identity heist is a blonde wig. I didn't think it was possible to top the absurdity that was The Evil Twin. I was blown away by this one. What? The evil twin has an evil twin??? How could this possibly suck?I'm not making sense, I'm raving, I apologize because I can't help myself. This book was so freaking awesome that I choke on my own spit just thinking about it. I want to find the ghostwriter's name just in case he/she wrote anything else equally awesome.

    This book should be studied in High Schools. Francine Pascal and her den of ghost writers got away with selling some of THE most bat shit stories EVER for decades. I kind of feel sorry for today's youth that the quality of YA lit has so vastly improved from the YA yarns of the 80s and 90s. Stephanie Meyer is almost Shakespearian by comparison. That being said... this book is GOLD. Plot holes every other page, ridiculous grammar and sentence structure, and paper thin characters that hardly even adhere to their own written characteristics. And I couldn't put it down....

    The single greatest book I have ever read in my life.

    Even more ridiculous than "The Evil Twin," which I read immediately previous to this one. I think The Evil Twin is the superior horror novel from the Sweet Valley High Series, but this one is still enjoyable.

    Return of the Evil Twin isn't nearly as good as The Evil Twin, but it's still good, murderous fun. You've got your crazy Wakefield twin lookalike, only this time it's Nora Chapelle, from the South, and she's battier than Margo was. Margo was psychotic, Nora is insane. Because in the Valley, everyone from the South is nutsy cuckoo. Anyway, Nora's father has just died, and her stepmonster, Blanche offers Nora an obscene amount of money if she will leave the family's Georgia home and never come back. To sweeten the deal, Blanche lets Nora know that Nora has a twin out there. A twin named Margo.Nora quickly follows Margo's lead to Sweet Valley and realizes that Margo died trying to take out Elizabeth, so she decides that to make the twins suffer for what they did to Margo, she will follow Margo's evil plan and take one of the twins' place. Then Margo turns up and they decide to off both twins and live happily ever after in their new identities.Which would be fab, but now both girls want to be Jessica. It never occurs to either one, even as Nora plans all the ways Jessica will slowly change over time if she's 'cast' as Jess, to assume Elizabeth's identity and slowly change her and blame it on growing up. Doubly insane when you realize that Sweet Valley Senior Year does exactly that: turns Liz to Jessica. Huh, maybe one of the Chapelle twins pulled their plot off after all.It's all down to New Year's Eve and suddenly one of the lookalikes is murdered in Jessica's bed. I admit it. I still wish they'd done an alternate reality book where Nora and Margo won.

    After having read the first evil twin story, I was eager to read this one. Apparently our evil twin has her own evil twin! Campy, sure, but fun nonetheless.One thing that really did bother me was the fact that Margo and Nora's father gave up one of the twins for adoption. For a father who loved his daughters so much, I found it ludicrous that his new wife was able to force him to give one of the girls away. That was the only part of the story that did not really work for me.The rest of the story, despite its twists, was rather enjoyable. I won't give away anything else, but I will say there were a couple of shockers in here. If you enjoyed the first evil twin story, you should enjoy this one!

    Oh yes I did. Haha. Found this in a box of old books from my parents' house and couldn't resist revisiting it. I *loved* the Sweet Valley High books when I was in middle school. I suspected I'd discover that they are pretty much obnoxious twaddle with no literary value whatsoever, and I was right, of course. Pretty ridiculous. And yet part of me wants to read more of them!--childhood nostalgia I suppose. I could lament all the hours I spent reading these silly books as a kid, thinking of all the valuable books with which I could have fed my mind instead...but instead I'll choose to be grateful that however silly, these books and others like them fueled a lifelong love for reading--one that, eventually, would lead me to richer and deeper fare :)

    Bless. Still so enthralling, still so terrible. SVH books are the best, I don't even care.

    Epic, epic, epic. And totally fucking bonkers. This was one of the few SV books I owned growing up, and I read it so many times. I remember being fascinated with what the Jungle Prom business was all about from the previous book. I always thought this one was better, but Margo’s storyline was definitely more engrossing, and she killed way more people than Nora did.If you haven’t read this one, I won’t spoil it for you. It would be a most grave injustice! But you know the basics: it’s the holidays again, and they have to get the twins mad at each other again in order for Margo and Nora to come between them. The easiest way to do that is to put Jess and Todd together. The thing is, they’ve already been together in her secret diary. And remember way back in book one? She fought Liz for him. Anyway. I wish this book had had more Margo, or more Margo and Nora. But with Nora in jail, you can’t help but wonder if maybe, just maybe, they will make a third one where Nora escapes and comes for the twins again. A girl can dream.Quotes:“But as Todd watched her leave, he couldn’t help marveling about how much she looked like Jessica.”Well, butter my biscuits, Todd. What the fuck did you expect her to look like?!Todd: Another normal holiday in normal Sweet Valley.That explains it. The kids in this town are on drugs. It’s the only explanation for Todd believing SV is normal!! By my calculations, it’s home to more murderers than Detroit.Jessica: Reconnaissance? I thought they was a time in Italy when lots of people painted pictures and things.Oh, Jess. A for effort.“A funeral seemed so final. It made Jessica’s death seem so... irrevocable.” Well, yes, Liz, death is generally not one to allow take-backsies.Of course you’re dying to read the poem Liz wrote for Jess’s “funeral,” right?! Here it is:Reflection, soul mate, sister, friend,Half of what I am is you—A vibrant smile, a helping handA love that always pulled us through. You, who so loved life, are goneThe life I loved is torn apart,And I am left to carry onMy mirror empty as my heart.Liz: I’ll drive Jessica and me in the Jeep. We have a lot of lost time to make up for.Um, three days?!

    You knew this was coming, right? You can’t read The Evil Twin and then not read Return of the Evil Twin. It would just be silly. Usually I try to at least include literary or grown-up person fiction, but there was a lot self-indulgence in my reading list over Christmas break. Is my credibility damaged beyond repair? Did I have any credibility to begin with? Spoilers for The Evil Twin and overall series spoilers ahead.A year has passed since the terrifying New Years Eve party where Margo tried to kill Elizabeth and take her place in the Wakefield family. The danger has passed, Jessica and Elizabeth are friends again, and they’re planning a New Years Eve fundraiser at a traveling carnival. But Margo’s long-lost twin, Nora, has come to Sweet Valley looking for her sister, and if she can’t find her, she may settle for taking one of the Wakefield twins instead.This novel is a pretty-near replica of its predecessor. There isn’t much in the way of literary fireworks or character development, but it’s another fun romp through the Wakefield family and their murderous shadows, the Blacks/Chapelles. While the introduction of Margo’s twin is an interesting twist, Nora isn’t as frightening a villain, and there seem to be fewer casualties with her in charge-–with one glaring exception. While scary, it comes rather late in the novel, and it’s eclipsed by the extremely sad chapters after, which is rarely something I like in my horror fiction. It’s fun, and I always feel it necessary to read them together, but it doesn’t quite match the delightful creepiness of the first.I review regularly at

    Poor little Margo has been passed down from foster to foster home. She had enough with the abusive parent, siblings and feeling neglected each time. She had all that anger boiling in her for too long she decides to take matters in her own hand. She kills her foster family in a “mysterious ” fire accident; she then kills her foster brother Georgie who she drowned. She had to get away from all of this and find a new life. Find a warm house, a loving father and mother, people who love and admire her. She finds a newspaper and discovers a girl that looks like her but with just a few touch ups she will become her. She will become Elizabeth Wakefield. What she didn’t know is that Gerogie’s brother Josh has a hunch that she was the one who killed her brother and he’s out to seek his revenge. The Wakefield family have no idea what is coming for them. They have had their own family problems that started all with the Jungle prom where the twins Elizabeth and Jessica became too competitive on who will earn the crown. During the prom someone spiced Elizabeth’s and Sam’s drink at the party they had no idea what was going on they drove of and sadly got into a car crash were Jessica’s boyfriend died. The family has never been the same ever since for weeks. During those times Margo has died her hair blond put in blue contacts to match every feature the twins have. She has been studying them for weeks and even gone into their house, school and pretended to be part of the family when one twin wasn’t there. Josh has figured out what evil plan Margo has up her sleep and tries to stop her and goes in search for hear and stop any more disruptions. Will Margo be part of the Wakefield family after all? Francine Pascal does it again. Francine Pascal has many books. One of my favorite series that she has been writing about is the Sweet Valley Twins. In this series it talks about 2 loving parents, an older brother named Steve, and 2 beautiful twin sisters everyone adores. She starts writing about them since they were in elementary school until they are all the way in college and marriage. The book The Evil Twin is one of my favorite books and I can’t wait to read Return of the Evil Twin. I wonder what Francine P. has up her sleeve.

    Reliving my middle school and high school years I found a bunch of these books for a dollar and got them. I loved the evil twin mysteries and to my surprise this one held up. I miss the days of Sweet Valley high where kids read and used their imagination...I liked that there was always a hint of something between Jessica and Todd...always a little threat of romance and found that even though I am grown now-Jessica is still my favorite twin. There is a twin or triplet of the Wakefield girls and now as it turns out a quadruplet who wants the Wakefield twin’s life. Campy and a bit cheesy but so fun to read all over again. If I say too much I will give it all away, but it was fun to catch up and reread a childhood classic.

    I have so many questions about this book.1. If Margo had been hanging around SV for a year, where was she staying? She had to be close enough to Casa Wakefield to sneak peeks at Liz's diary, right?2. Wouldn't the glass have left a scar in Margo's throat?3. Did they not perform an autopsy on Margo? Wouldn't theyhave noticed she was a heavy smoker?

    My trashy YA kick continues. OMG. This book was pure, hilarious crack. I almost took a long lunch today to finish it. Sadly, if Jessica Wakefield were a controlling, 100-year-old vampire, this book would still be on the bestseller list.

    I love this garbage book. I kind of regret not keeping my copy of it. The creepiest thing is how the twins are described as "wholesome". Use wholesome to describe a healthy meal, not people. I think of this book whenever I think of magnolias.

    I was quite disappointed with this book as it left me with more questions rather than answers. Perhaps I should have read The Evil Twin first before picking this book up. I was hoping that it could be a stand-alone novel but I guess I was wrong.

    I have loved reading all of the sweet valley high especially about one of the twins that becomes a evil twin.
