Overview

Growing up with a sibling on the autism spectrum can be difficult. Does your brother or sister cause a scene everywhere you go? Have you had to learn not only how to deal with it, but how to help? Do you sometimes think that you're the only one experiencing this?

There are plenty of books out there for your autistic brother or sister, but this one is just for you. People of all ages who have grown up with autistic siblings share their stories, honestly recounting the good, the bad, and the downright annoying. They explain how being "the normal one" can be tiring, frustrating and lonely, but equally rewarding, and every story is filled with the wisdom they've gained by growing up quickly and learning to love their siblings for who they are.

This book is for any of you with a brother or sister on the autism spectrum, no matter what age you are. It will also be of interest to your parents and those around you, but has been written above all as a reminder that no matter how tough things get, you're never really alone.
