Artichoke Hearts

100.0

Twelve-year-old Mira comes from a chaotic, artistic and outspoken family where it’s 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.

The winner of the Waterstone’s Children’s Book Prize 2011, ‘Artichoke Hearts’ explores the delicate balance, and often injustice, of life and death and celebrates friendship, culture and life.
