Synopsis

Mimi by John Newman, Del Thorpe

A beautifully written and touching story about one young girl's life following the sudden and unexpected death of her mother. Despite Mrs Lemon's extra sweeties, and sneaky peaks at her sisters' diary, Mimi is struggling. Her dad is always sad, her sister has a horrible secret, and 151 days ago her mammy died. What is Mimi to do? Mimi's tale is a compassionate, immensely moving, and gently humorous story from newcomer John Newman that powerfully captures the importance of family, of supporting and understanding one another, and sticking up for yourself when other people don't understand.

Reviews

This is not a maudlin book; it is poignant and funny and real. John Newman handles his subject with insight and sensitivity and manages to keep the resolution realistic as well as positive. The Scotsman Delightful..I found this book difficult to put down and will not easily forget the story Woman Alive

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
