UK Paperback Cover Reveal: My Sister Lives on the Mantelpiece by Annabel Pitcher!

My Sister Lives on the Mantelpiece is published in paperback here in the UK on September 29th, and today I'm allowed to reveal the amazing cover! I loved the hardback cover, but I think this one is now my new favourite. It's simple but conveys so much - brilliant!

If you want to know more about the book, here's a summary from Annabel's official site:

Ten-year-old Jamie hasn’t cried since it happened. He knows he should have – Jasmine cried, Mum cried, Dad still cries. Roger didn’t, but then he is just a cat and didn’t know Rose that well, really. Everyone kept saying it would get better with time, but that’s just one of those lies that grown-ups tell in awkward situations. Five years on, it’s worse than ever: Dad drinks, Mum’s gone and Jamie’s left with questions that he must answer for himself.This is his story, an unflinchingly real yet heart-warming account of a young boy’s struggle to make sense of the loss that tore his family apart.


...And here's the brand new paperback cover!

I love this cover! I much prefer it to the first one. I'd definitely be more inclined to read it now if I saw it in a book shop. Thanks for sharing!

It's OK... it's a bit too pastel-coloured for me. I prefer the hardback one.

I love, love, love this cover! I can't put my finger on why exactly but I think it's fab:)

Love, love, love! The hardback cover worked well because of the book trailer, but this is also an adorable and very moving cover. Love this book :)

Ooooh! Don't know which one I prefer... The Arrow is awesome. Loving it! <3

I like this one. It gives some indication of what the book is about and what the title means, which the hardback cover really didn't.
