Artichoke Hearts

by Sita Brahmachari
£5.99   paperback  Pan Macmillan (2011)

Artichoke Hearts by Sita Brahmachari A heart-wrenching, evocative and intimate debut novel from a fresh and hugely talented new voice in children's fiction.
 
Twelve-year-old Mira comes from a chaotic, artistic and outspoken family where itís not always easy to be heard. As her beloved Nana Josie's health declines, Mira begins to discover the secrets of those around her, and also starts to keep some of her own. She is drawn to mysterious Jide, a boy who is clearly hiding a troubled past and has grown hardened layers - like those of an artichoke - around his heart. As Mira is experiencing grief for the first time, she is also discovering the wondrous and often mystical world around her.
 
An incredibly insightful, honest novel exploring the delicate balance, and often injustice, of life and death - but at its heart is a celebration of friendship, culture - and life.
