Abstract:

The attic room at 26a Waifer Avenue in the lower-middle-class London neighborhood of Neasden is a sanctuary for identical twins Georgia and Bessi Hunter. Here the girls share nectarines and forge their identities, planning glorious success as the Famous Flapjack Twins, well removed from their Nigerian mother, Ida, who, devastated by homesickness, speaks to the spirits of the family she left behind on another continent. But innocence lasts for only so long--and dreams cannot slow the relentless incursions of the real world. A terrible secret begins to threaten the twins' utopia, setting them on divergent paths toward heartrending resolutions in a world of separateness and solitude.
