But when her missing twin sister Jessica miraculously returns, it reignites a lifelong rivalry. It falls to new girl Enid Ruiz to discover that someone (or something) is pulling all the strings, but can she convince the twins that putting their personal war aside is the only way to drag Sweet Valley’s dark roots into the California sunshine?
If you didn’t know, Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage are also executive producers on the Gossip Girl revival, as well as Nancy Drew, it’s upcoming spinoff Tom Swift and Dynasty at The CW.
