Product Synopsis

The popularity of many signed editions may mean that stock sells out faster than our website can update. When the quantity listed in stock is low, we recommend contacting us to check current availability.

Each copy is hand-numbered as one of 1000 copies. (We cannot respond to requests for particular numbers.)

I always thought you'd know, somehow, if something terrible was going to happen. I thought you'd sense it, like when the air goes damp and heavy before a storm and you know you'd better hide yourself away somewhere safe until it all blows over. But it turns out it's not like that at all. There's no scary music playing in the background like in films. No warning signs. Not even a lonely magpie. One for sorrow, Mum used to say. Quick, look for another.

The world can tip at any moment, a fact that fifteen-year-old Pearl is all too aware of when her mum dies after giving birth to her baby sister. Told across the year following her mother's death, Pearl's story is full of bittersweet humour and heartbreaking honesty about how you deal with grief that cuts you to the bone, as she tries not only to come to terms with losing her mum, but also the fact that her sister - The Rat - is a constant reminder of why her mum is no longer around.

Customer Reviews

This is a young adult novel but at the grand old age of 40 I enjoyed reading it and remembering what it was like to be a teenage girl. The 'Rat' is the baby whose mother died and the repercussions for the family make for a compelling novel.
