Overview

Sixth-grader Adam Krasner wishes every family decision wasn’t based on his brother Jeremy and Jeremy’s problems. The Krasners have even moved to a new town because it has a great school system for kids with disabilities. If only Jeremy didn’t always act so goofy. And if only their mother didn’t insist that both brothers be placed on the same Little League team, especially since Jeremy couldn’t catch a fly ball if his life depended on it.

Making friends in a new school isn’t easy, which is why Adam’s excited when Eddie, his coach’s son, starts spending time with him. Eddie’s the best player on their team and in seventh grade, like Jeremy. Eddie invites Adam to join some of the team for pizza before Saturday’s game. Adam’s about to ask if Jeremy can come, too,, when Eddie tells him, “And don’t bring Jeremy.”

Adam becomes friendly with some of the members of the team. Eddie, he soon learns, often lies and makes fun of Jeremy every chance he can. Still, when Eddie comes to apologize, Adam agrees to be friends again. Issues continue to escalate between Jeremy and Eddie. And then Jeremy’s accused of doing something truly awful, forcing Adam to take a stand and support his brother.

I am the author of JEREMY GRABOWSKI¿S CRAZY SUMMER IN STORMVILLE!, a children¿s book. In ¿And Don¿t Bring Jeremy,¿ Adam Krasner has the burden of having to deal with his older brother Jeremy who is neurologically impaired. I highly recommend this book. I decided to read ¿And Don¿t Bring Jeremy,¿ because my older brother Kevin has a brain disorder called autism. A number of the situations in the book between a ¿normal¿ kid and his handicapped brother I can relate to. The characters are well developed and are realistic. The story is not predictable and I didn¿t lose interest, as I wanted to find out how things turned out. Young readers, with or without handicapped siblings, would find ¿And Don¿t Bring Jeremy¿ a good book. Those without a handicapped brother or sister might have a better idea of what life would be like with one. Great book Marilyn!
