Identical twins Georgia and Bessi live in the loft of 26 Waifer Avenue. Down below, their Nigerian mother puts cayenne pepper on Yorkshire pudding, and their father roams the streets of Neasden, prey to the demons of his Derbyshire upbringing. Forced to create their own identities, the Hunter children build a separate universe. Older sister Bel discovers sex, high heels, and organic hairdressing; the twins prepare for a flapjack empire; and baby sister Kemy learns to moonwalk like Michael Jackson. But when reality comes knocking, the fantasies of childhood start to give way. How will Georgia and Bessi cope in the adult world, and which of them will be stronger?

Wickedly funny and devastatingly moving, 26a is an extraordinary first novel, a successor to Zadie Smith's White Teeth and Monica Ali's Brick Lane. Part fairytale, part nightmare, it moves from the mundane to the magical with flair and imagination.

    " "...You wait for the rainbow to come," Says the Twin.."I am in the colors. And don't forget the flowers :-)." "

    " Loved this tender story of the Hunter twins and their relationship with each other. For a debut novel, Evans really makes her mark on the literary world. The pace is slow but intense and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a satsifying read. "

    " Well I am left having read this book and still not knowing if I enjoyed it or not? Glad I read it, however not at all what I expected from the synopsis! It starts off as an enjoyable and amusing read but personally I found as it progressed that it became rather a sinister story. "

    " Stunning book, heartbreaking but beautiful. "
