How to Be a Sister: A Love Story with a Twist of Autism - Eileen Garvin

An absolutely stunning work. I love that Garvin is so honest about her experiences and how she felt about them. She gives a true account of how she felt growing up with a sister living with severe autism and does not try to hide her negative thoughts and actions toward her sister during various stages of her life. While some of the stories become repetitive throughout the book and some of the present-to-past memories become a little confusing, this was a terrific book. It gives a great first-person narrative of how one woman struggled to figure out what it means to have a sister living with autism. Her story was eye-opening and the ending was perfect and beautiful.
