(XFM Shapi 2009)

This book attempts to answer how having a sibling with autism affects a child. It is written in first person, through interviews with more than 10 sibling pairs. Underlying all the essays are feelings of resignation, hope, and appreciation. They also display a commitment to understanding what their brothers and sisters are going through and recognize that having an autistic sibling stretches their sense of empathy. Pp. 48.
