My Sister Lives on the Mantelpiece

«Heartbreaking and funny in near equal measure the story of 10-year-old Jamie's direct and wide-eyed telling of the emotional chaos he and his family live through following the death of his sister in a terrorist attack is poignant and warm hearted. Emotionally charged, this is a wonderful, touching story that never slips into worthiness.»

THE OBSERVER

«I can't imagine you could read this novel and remain dry-eyed ro fail to clutch it tightly, desperate to know what happens next but almost unable to turn the page to fund out in case it's not what you hoped it would be.»

CORNFLOWER BOOKS

«I loved this book! Jamie was a fantastic narrator and I felt I understood his complex problems entirely»

FARM LANE BOOKS

«... at time funny, at times unbearably sad and is at all times brutally honest. It is one tale that cannot and will not leave you unmoved, and is a truly convincing debut novel.»

LIBRARY MICE

«the story is told with warmth and humour. A tear-jerker, but without sentimentality.»

THE INDEPENDENT

«The stand out title of the year, a heart-warming tale of a young boy whose elder sister has been killed in a bomb attack in London. Despite the dramatic premise, this book manages to be both solidly realistic and very funny. An exceptional debut.»

Suzi Feay, FINANCIAL TIMES

«This is a book which could easily have sunk under the weight of sentimentality. That it doesn't, that it is an inspiring tale of resilience and kindness, is a tribute to Pitcher. This is a fine debut novel. Truthful, clear-eyed and wise.»

Martin Chilton, THE TELEGRAPH

«Tackling current issues, this debut is brave and significant.»

DAILY EXPRESS

«You know how, every once in a while, you find a book that you know will become a class reader, found in every book cupboard, on every reading list? Well, My Sister Lives on the Mantelpiece is just one of those books. It is a stunning, special read.»

NATE CLASSROOM

«...it was so moving, sad and yet ultimately uplifting in a way I can't possibly describe to you. It's just something you simply have to read for yourself.»

MAGIC OF READING

«This is a warm-hearted, funny tale which will by turns make your spirit soar and your heart break... Painfully honest and beautifully written, you'll devour it - and hopefully be left looking at the world a little differently.»
