After Iris

Natasha Farrant

Twelve-year-old Blue thinks no one else misses her twin Iris, who died three years ago. Blue chronicles her life through a diary and videos, capturing her workaholic parents, moody sister Flora, and younger siblings Jasmine and Twig, who keep pet rats to entertain everyone. Their new babysitter Zoran is in for some challenges with this unlucky family. When another near-tragedy occurs they manage to rally and work together. Blue's struggles are handled with honesty and compassion as she works through her grief. The final chapter depicts Blue laughing, as she has learned to enjoy life - a poignant and memorable story. Ages 9-13
