John Newman's 'Mimi' has been selected by Balinteer Community College for their 'One Community One Book' project. The Morning Show (TV3) has covered the event and will broadcast tomorrow morning, 21st March 2013.
A beautifully written and touching story about one young
girl's life following the sudden and unexpected death of her mother.
Despite Mrs Lemon's extra sweeties, and sneaky peaks at
her sisters' diary, Mimi is struggling. Her dad is always sad, her
sister has a horrible secret, and 151 days ago her mammy died. What is
Mimi to do? Mimi's tale is a compassionate, immensely moving, and gently
humorous story from newcomer John Newman that powerfully captures the
importance of family, of supporting and understanding one another, and
sticking up for yourself when other people don’t understand.
