My Sister Lives on the Mantelpiece

Printer-friendly version
Author:  Annabel Pitcher

Ten-year-old Jamie hasn't cried since it happened. He knows he should have - Jasmine cried, Mum cried, Dad still cries. Roger didn't, but then he is just a cat and didn't know Rose that well, really. 

Everyone kept saying it would get better with time, but that's just one of those lies that grown-ups tell in awkward situations. Five years on, it's worse than ever: Dad drinks, Mum's gone and Jamie's left with questions that he must answer for himself. 

This is his story, an unflinchingly real yet heart-warming account of a young boy's struggle to make sense of the loss that tore his family apart.

I have just started reading this book and am very interested on what's in store to come every page that I read. It may be hard for some people who have lost someone who they loved because they might make connections to the person they have lost but nevertheless it is a very good books so far.
