The magnificent story of a boy who lost a sister he didn’t really know and it has torn the family apart.
The magnificent story of a boy who lost a sister he didn’t really know and it has torn the family apart. This book is called “My Sister Lives on the Mantelpiece” by Annabel Pitcher. Mom still lives in London but Jamie and his big sister Jas and his dad have moved away to a little cottage.
Annabel Pitcher wrote a novel that has a lot of quick changing emotions. These emotions are very detailed and make it easy for you to put yourself into her story. The characters where set right away sending off flares of empathy to our friend Jamie. While the character development was precisely what made this book over the top, the setting was a bit of a disappointment. When Jamie moved from London, where did he go? It wasn’t very clear.
I was very emotional about this story, so if you do well with this kind of writing material then you would love this book. But, the tremendously unique plot helped decrease the sorrow.
This is a very intense book, and I would not recommend it to kids under the age of 12. Even mature 12 year olds may have slight difficulty comprehending this book. The words in it are not too hard to read or understand, but when it comes down to it you may not understand the plot.
The middle of the book has a few slow parts, but it makes up for it with its deep relationships farther on in the novel.
This 210- page book expresses a deep plot with a hint of love and I highly recommend it.
