My sister lives on the mantelpiece by Annabel Pitcher

” My sister Rose lives on the mantelpiece.Well, some of her does.Three of her fingers, her elbow and her kneecap are buried in a grave yard in London and I haven’t cried since it happened.”

The first thing that tore Jamie’s life apart was when Rose was killed by a terrorist bomb. There was a posting on the internet to say that Muslims had planted it. Then everything happened quickly. Mum left them, Dad drinks and hates Muslims for life. Jamie’s head is bursting with questions that he now needs to answer himself.

You can learn lots from this story: How sometimes a problem doesn’t get better in time and a family is really important in life. But, also, although it takes time, it will get better.

age range is 11+ and the publisher is Orion children’ s books.
