My sister Rose lives on the mantelpiece.
Well, some of her does.
A collarbone, two ribs, a bit of skull, and a little toe.
To ten-year-old Jamie, his family has fallen apart because of the loss of someone he barely remembers: his sister Rose, who died five years ago in a terrorist bombing. To his father, life is impossible to make sense of when he lives in a world that could so cruelly take away a ten-year-old girl. Rose’s surviving fifteen-year-old twin, Jas, lives every day in Rose’s ever present shadow, forever feeling the loss like a limb, unable to be seen for herself alone.
Told with warmth and humor, this powerful story is a sophisticated take on one family’s struggle to make sense of the loss that has torn them apart—and their discovery of what it means to stay together.
