How to Stop a Heart From Beating
Publisher:Random House New Zealand Ltd
Brilliantly capturing the voice and perspective of a young girl, this is a heart-warming, lively, funny and intriguing novel. The year 1961 is a pivotal one for nine-year-old Solly McKeen. She is a loner in a family of doubles: a 'single' with no twin of her own, and seen as a bit of an oddity by everyone in her dairy-farming community in South Otago. On learning about the unnamed paupers' graves in the local cemetery, she promises to people them: imagining characters, names and causes of death for each. While Solly unravels death and fills in the blanks on the gravestones, she unwittingly uncovers family secrets.
