Wishlist Wednesday #1

Wishlist Wednesday

9789800 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.

I want to read this because the audio book is narrated by David Tennant, who I have a rather huge celebrity crush on. The title is also eye-catching (your sister’s where?). If I have to admit I am a sucker for stories like this as well. I can’t read them that often (they are too depressing, let’s be honest) but I love them.
