Books to make time for Part 2: Angela and Diabola

Part 2 of my "Books to make time for" feature is here!

The second book I'd like to feature is: Angela and Diabola by Lynne Reid Banks.

What is it about?

The book follows the childhood of two twins. One is unbelievably good; practically angelic, while the other is a terror; practically devilish. The book is about the twins' relationship and the ways their parents deal with their behaviour.


Why should you make time for it?

Angela and Diabola is a book written for older children, however, I couldn't resist featuring it. I loved the often-dark subject matter, the extreme sibling rivalry and the quirky, off-beat ending. The events throughout the book are both humourous and a little bit shocking. The illustrations were brilliant and reminicent of Tim Burton/Gris Grimly. All in all, it's a book that anybody whos ever had a brother or sister will find entertaining, and may remind only children why they possibly didn't want one!
