My Sister Lives on the Mantelpiece is one of the best books I've ever read. I loved Jamie, who looked at life through such innocent eyes and Sunya, who took the best out of the worst situations and was always there for Jamie, through thick and thin. This book made me laugh and cry in equal measures and it really changed my outlook on life. This was a totally life-affirming, poignant debut novel by Annabel Pitcher and I would recommend it to anyone ten-years plus but it would be equally appealing to teenagers. A must-read for anybody that wants a good book to get their teeth into.
I bought this book because I quite often enjoy the truth of many teen books and read it on one sitting. It did not fail. I couldn't help laughing out loud as the characters are so real, warts and all. A very enjoyable book to share with your friends and family.
My Sister Lives on the Mantelpiece, this book is heart warming. How can a boy cope at such a young age? It's magnificent! When he was five, his elder sister Rose dies in a bomb attack, and the police only manage to find ten peices of her body and seeing as things between Mum and Dad are not good, 5 of the pieces go to Mum and 5 go to Dad. Truly amazing!
This book is a heart warming, soul wrenching story of family break up and coping with it. It is a beautiful tale full of love, hope and belief. Jamie's viewpoint is really interesting and new, it shows the world through a young, funny, likeable boy's eyes. In some parts you find yourself laughing, some crying but you will enjoy all of it and it may change some of your views forever. This is definitely a book to keep, enjoy and keep thinking about, it is a gripping, thought-provoking tale and one I would recommend to everyone.
I bought this book for my 14 year-old daughter but just had to read it first, I don't normally read books at all but managed to read this book in just 3 nights. Excellent reading, would highly recommend.
An amazing Book, well worth a read! I was up too late last night finishing it!
