Seven-year-old twins Georgia and Bessi Hunter are two oddball, frizzy-‘froed heroines struggling to survive their dysfunctional family in ’80s suburban London. With their Nigerian mother trying to soak her depression away in the bathtub and their British dad steeped in his own troubled past, the duo — and their freewheeling older sister Bel and devoted younger sib Kemy — create a fantasy world in 26A (their ”apartment” of sorts) with, among other wild schemes, a dream to start their own pancake-making business. But as the twins grow up —and apart — things get more than a little sticky. Evans delivers a heartwarming epic that’s never syrupy sweet.
