Twelve-year-old Mira comes from a chaotic, artistic and outspoken family where it's not always easy to be heard. As her beloved Nana Josie's health declines, Mira begins to discover the secrets of those around her, and also starts to keep some of her own. She is drawn to mysterious Jide, a boy who is clearly hiding a troubled past and has grown hardened layers - like those of an artichoke - around his heart. As Mira is experiencing grief for the first time, she is also discovering the wondrous and often mystical world around her.

The winner of the Waterstone's Children's Book Prize 2011, 'Artichoke Hearts' explores the delicate balance, and often injustice, of life and death and celebrates friendship, culture and life.

    " I don't give 5* lightly. But this book was absolutely incredible. It has probably the nicest cover art that I've seen in a lot while (I love bright, bright beats dark). I loved that it dealt with the issue of death but was such a light and beautiful story too. The fact that it was about a twelve year old didn't bother me at all, in fact.. I prefered it that way. The romance involved was so sweet and innocent, something I think what childhood love should be about. I really recommend this book. It's beautiful and fantastic! "

    " thuis book made me cry. a lot. it was really well written but i thought that some parts were a bit unnesscesary. all the characters had there own stories and they were combined into this beautifully written tale. i loved the characters and the idea of the artichoke was beautiful. "

    " A beautiful, tender story of a girl helping her artist Grandmother to prepare for death. Not at all sentimental but gentle and life affirming. "
