BOOK REVIEW THE YEAR OF THE RAT BY CLARE FURNISS

‘Beautifully written with a dry sense of humour’ Stylist ‘A painful and touching debut’ Sunday Express ‘Amazing’ Company Pearl’s baby sister is The Rat. She’s the reason Pearl’s mum died, the reason everything changed forever, and Pearl can’t forgive her for that .Because losing her mum is the hardest thing that has happened to Pearl and no one, not her dad, her interfering granny, her best friend – and especially not her new little sister – can break down the barriers she’s putting up. But what if Pearl’s mum isn’t completely gone? What if, somehow, she’s still here? The world may tip at any moment, Pearl knows that now. The trick is finding something to hold on to…

I have just finished this in the bath and I don’t think I can o justice with words in this review as when my daughter asked if it was good I made some odd  sounds lol.I then left it on her bed and said you must read this!

I had heard lots of good things about this book but it will exceed any expectations you may or may not have .

I whizzed through over 2 days even with the kids off and you find due to its lay out its so hard to put down .

Clare’s writing and characters will capture your heart instantly and you will laugh and cry and marvel at this amazing book .

Such a easy enjoyable read but it deals with heavy subjects that I could relate to and you can feel Pearls emotions on each page .

Grief is a huge emotion and makes us think and do weird things and this book will show that and  a whole lot more.

A story of family friendship love loss and written with such sensitivity .
