This is the Life

 
9780007529735: This is the Life

Even when you have received a death sentence, you still have to live...This is the story of Louis, who never quite fitted in, and of his younger brother who always tagged along. Two brothers on one final journey together, wading through the stuff that is thicker than water. Tender-hearted, at times achingly funny, this is a moving testimony to both the resilience of the human spirit and to the price of strawberries.

About the Author:

Alex Shearer was born in Wick in the north of Scotland, and now lives in Somerset. He has written for television, radio, film and the stage and is the author of many books for children, including the Guardian Children's Fiction Prize shortlisted The Speed of the Dark. Several of Alex's novels have become films and TV series, all over the world; one became both a manga comic and a full length anime film in Japan. His books have been translated into many different languages.

Review:

'This is a lovely touching book. The subject is a poignant one, handled with tact, insight and, most of all, with love' Alexander McCall Smith 'Beautifully done... A fine book on mortality and siblinghood' Broadcaster Libby Purves
