Here we are, then, Margaret. You and me. You have made my life indescribably different from what I could ever have imagined. Eileen Garvin's older sister, Margaret, has autism. Growing up with Margaret wasn't easy--her unpredictable behavior was often embarrassing in public and s...tressful at home. Losing her favorite blue plastic hairbrush could leave Margaret inconsolable for hours. But just as small crises are larger-than-life with Margaret, everyday moments--a shared smile, a phone call--become monumental triumphs in this story of two sisters who stick together through it all. A candid, modern memoir, How to Be a Sister will strike a chord with anyone who sometimes struggles to connect with a loved one--especially a sibling. Readers will be inspired by the author's lifelong endeavor to forge a meaningful relationship with her sister, and by the unique perspective (and well-developed sense of humor!) that she gains along the way.Read more
