Audio CD version
on 4 February 2009
Judging from other peoples' comments, I was lucky to come across this in Audio CD. Morwenna Banks's voices were wonderful and infused the story with life. It was a shame that the version was abridged but I don't suppose I missed too much :)
Two council house twins, Penny and Lizzie, suddenly have the good fortune to move into a large flat in Chelsea. Unfortunately they are not allowed to move anything so it's not the huge airy white expanse that they dream of. It belongs to their grandmother, now languishing in an old people's home.
The twins launch themselves into Chelsea life, a steep learning curve involving the inevitable mistakes. The ending is hardly a surprise, it's more the method of getting there that kept my interest.
Well read and good fun, but not mind blowing.
