Minty

Publisher: Three Hares Publishing

Review

Minty and Jess are 14 year old twins. They share a special bond; they are inseparable despite the odd falling out. But, one fateful day while walking the dogs by the sea, the girls argue and the last thing Jess says to Minty is 'drop dead'. How could she know what was to follow? When Minty tries to save their dog from drowning those words come back to haunt Jess as their sisterly bond is shattered…

This is a thought provoking debut novel about love, loss and the importance of family. Considering the afterlife is an interesting premise to explore these themes and there are plenty of moments of humour and wit to lift the sadness. A compelling and ultimately heart-warming story.
