My Sister Lives on the Mantelpiece Reviews
"Starred Review. Realistic, gritty and uplifting. Ages 10-14." - Kirkus Reviews
"Starred Review. Pitcher tackles grief, prejudice, religion, bullying, and familial instability through the unsentimental voice of a boy who loves Spider-Man and Manchester United, misses his mother, and - truth be told - doesn't remember his dead sister all that well. The adults in Pitcher's story may be a mess, but the kids are all right. Ages 12+" - Publishers Weekly
"It lives off the page. It has a warmth you can bask in; an honesty you can cut with a knife." - The Guardian (UK)
"Compelling and believable... by turns heartbreaking and hysterically funny... This is an important book that could be used in classes and book-discussion groups. Don't let it fall through the cracks." - School Library Journal
