26a by Diana Evans
I adored this. I read Ordinary People by the same author a while ago and wanted to read more of Diana Evans work after that.
This is the story of twins, Georgia and Bessi, growing up, mostly in London but with a spell with their mother’s family in Nigeria, in the 1980s and 1990s. They were about the same age as me so the cultural nostalgia was strong here. I loved all the details, the lives of the twins and their family are very vivid. The end of the book gets very sad and had me in tears, but the whole thing somehow managed to be delightful despite that.
More information about this book can be found on goodreads.
