Unexpectedly, Mrs. Cuthertson-Jones gives birth to twins, and an unlikely pair at that, for one (Angela) is pure goodness and the other (Diabola) is pure evil. Their parents eventually realize that the girls are dependent upon each other for their very survival but, as they grow older, the inevitable clash between good and evil occurs. The author's training as an actor is evident as she delivers a fully voiced, dramatic performance, acting out each character. With excellent timing and tempo, this is theater at its best; Banks's treatment of both the hilariously funny and more serious parts is so perfect that it is difficult to imagine that reading the book could possibly be as enjoyable as listening to it.
