Trailer Reveal: My Sister Lives on the Mantelpiece by Annabel Pitcher + Giveaway!

Orion are publishing My Sister Lives on the Mantelpiece by British debut author Annabel Pitcher on March 1st, and today a number of bloggers are taking part in the great unveiling of the brilliant trailer. I was lucky enough to read this book last year, and let me just say that it's fantastic. It's definitely a must-read for 2011, that's for sure. It made me laugh and cry, and it's so beautifully written. How it's a debut novel, I don't know!

In addition to the trailer I also have an introductory video from Annabel herself, along with a giveaway to win a signed proof copy of the book. I hope you love this trailer as much as I do!

I'm not a fan of the cover but the trailer is amazing.

What a fab book this looks like! Glad Orion are publishing more YA titles (they always choose such good ones - like the Bad Tuesdays!). Will be interesting to read this one when it's published and what a fantastic trailer - glad they're getting more attention.

I have just finished the book (I read it in two days) and it is really good - it deals with controversial issues sensitively but is still touching and, in some places tear-jerking. It paints life beautifully though Jamie's innocent, unknowing and naive eyes in the same way as John Boyne does in 'The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas'. The trailer is very good, but I picture Jas (from what few glimpses we get of her) with lighter, shorter hair. I guess that's just me though.
