Editorial Reviews

Review

A rich cast of deftly drawn supporting characters and a couple of subplots all add up to a warm, believable, and optimistic portrait of grief and connection.
—The Horn Book

Irish author Newman's first solo effort and U.S. debut will win readers' hearts through the conversational tone and openhearted observations of elementary school-aged narrator Mimi, whose mother died 149 days earlier (she is counting).
—Publishers Weekly

About the Author

John Newman was born in Dublin and worked as a folklore collector, a civil servant, and an accountant before he became an elementary schoolteacher. He is the co-author of eleven books for children. Mimi is his first solo novel. John Newman lives in Ireland.

Format: Hardcover
My daughter read this book when she was 8. She did not want to put it down. There is sadness as the subject is the aftermath of a family dealing with the death of the mom in the story. It tells the story in a way children can understand with a touch of humor, serious nature and compassion. I'd definitely recommend this book as it shows the delicate family balance and how it impacts all of us.

I think that because the book wasn't boring, it didn't go on and on, the author kept it interesting the whole time. I book had a lot of emotions because it was sad and it made me want to cry.

I think this book was very sad. But it was told with heartfelt emotion. This is now one of my favorite books
