UNEARTHED by Alys Metcalf
On their 18th birthday, twins Ben and Eliza bury a time capsule in the Somerset countryside to mark the occasion and cement their bond, but the day goes horribly wrong.
Some years later, the two siblings, now estranged and living far apart, are forced back together on a quest to honour the unusual wishes in their late father's will.
They find themselves thrown into absurd and ludicrous situations and forced to confront a few home truths, on an enlightening mission that will reignite past memories and dig up some well-buried secrets...
