Angela and Diabola
Wicked, hilarious magic in an acclaimed novel of good and evil twins, from The New York Times bestselling author of The Indian in the Cupboard.
Twins "Angela and Diabola" are as different as day and night. From the moment they are born, Angela is beautiful, loving, and perfect in every way. Diabola is ugly, unpleasant, and troublesome in direct proportion. No one knows what to do about the horrid child, and only her twin Angela has the power to affect her -- but at a terrible price.

Not sure how I feel about this odd little modern fable. It's a little didactic & heavy-handed. Maybe it's meant to be funny but I couldn't laugh. I think it would have worked better as a short story - that is, if it had made it's point and then we could turn the page and read another story. Read full review
