sharty on LibraryThing 11 months ago
These poems speak to the complex relationships between siblings and the various ways in which siblings enter our lives--through birth, adoption, marriage, and choice. With her fantastic sense of rhythem and beat, Greenfield explores the good and bad of these relationships never underestimating children's abilities to understand the complexities of human interaction.
