The Book Review: Ketchup Clouds by Annabell Pitcher

Another new book completed, and this time it's from one of my new favourite authors: Annabell Pitcher. After writing the incredible My Sister Lives on the Mantelpiece, a compelling novel from the point of view of a 10 year old boy who lost his sister to bombings in London, she wrote Ketchup Clouds, about a teenage girl.

The story is composed as a series of letters from 'Zoe' to a prisoner on death row in the States. 'Zoe' has committed a crime; she's killed someone and got away with it. The letters are her way of explaining the build-up to the event, and the conclusion. It is a moving story, in which Annabell Pitcher is successful in making the audience feel empathetic towards to the characters and equally anticipate the epic ending, which is completely obvious yet unexpected.

I would so recommend Ketchup Clouds to teenage or adult readers as it's a storyline that can be related to from all points of view.

Have you any book recommendations?

Love, E X
