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!
