Review by BethDandelion Clocks is a caringly written beautiful story for younger readers It looks candidly at the issue of losing a parent when you re very young and adds into the mix an elder sibling with a developmental disability There s a realism to Westcott s novel which I think would be very helpful for young readers who had or were going through the same thing as Rebecca as it is honest without being brutal11 year old Liv grows up through the novel and it s a painful thing to see At the beginning she s unbelievably embarrassed by her mum who won t let her get her ears pierced but as the novel progresses and we and Liv learn the terrible truth about her mum s terminal illness she grows impressively but the hallmarks of her young age are still present Her emotions are everywhere uncontrollable even and how could blame her It s impossible to read this novel without feeling terribly sad for Liv and her older brother Isaac who has Asperger s SyndromeOnce Liv s mum dies we see her struggle to come to terms with it and managing even the simplest daily tasks become a challenge I can t imagine what losing a parent is like but I can t imagine anyone knows how to handle it very well let alone an 11 year old child This is an emotional read but by the end of the novel I felt content that Liv would be OK and she would make sure Isaac would be too It s the kind of novel every school library should stock
