Open Road Media, Apr 22, 2014 - Juvenile Fiction - 155 pages
How do you love someone who makes you miserable? 

Eleven-year-old Jonathan just wants to have a normal life—for instance, a night when he isn’t awakened by screams, or a day when he’s not teased by other kids for having a disabled family member. But normal can’t happen when your little brother is severely autistic.

James, Jonathan’s four-year-old brother, needs more help than his parents can give him. And it’s not just hard for Jonathan—it’s causing strife for the whole family. When James gets into a special school for autistic children, Jonathan and his sister have to make a lot of sacrifices so he can go. Jonathan comes up with an idea to help out the family—but will his plan work, or only lead to more teasing?

This ebook features an illustrated personal history of Ann M. Martin, including rare images from the author’s collection.
