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

Growing up with Margaret Garvin was never easy for her sister Eileen. As her sibling, she constantly found herself thrown into situations that were often all at once awkward, heartbreaking, and often bizarrely funny. But now that both were adults, things just kept getting harder and weirder. Just what was Eileens relationship with Margaret supposed to be like? How could she how do any of us have a relationship with someone who cant drive, fly, write letters, send email, or talk on the phone? What role would she be asked to play as their parents aged? What about after they died?How to Be a Sisterposes and grapples with these questions, as it chronicles Eileen Garvins experiences growing up with a sister with autism and traces her quest to develop and maintain a meaningful connection with her in adulthood. With its meticulous and subtle storytelling and its emotional candor and clarity, it will speak not only to siblings but also to families, friends, teachers and therapists of people with autism as well as anyone who struggles to make room in his or her adult life for someone different or difficult.
