It¿s 1950 and Ruthie is determined to get some attention, but no matter what she does her family doesn¿t seem to notice. Instead, everyone is concerned with watching and reprimanding Eddie, her brother who has a mental disability. Even when she gets on TV for her book trivia knowledge, her mother is not impressed. Meanwhile, her parents keep fighting and yelling at Eddie until Ruthie can¿t take it anymore. Ruthie and Eddie run away on a train, and when the police find them and bring them home, Ruthie¿s mother tells her that Eddie is not hers to take.Eddie¿s purpose in this book is really to cause family drama and give Ruthie a chance to complain. Eddie¿s character is not at all independent, has few personality traits beyond the stereotypical (he¿s good at maps), and remains fairly flat throughout the book. Readers do not learn very much about the disease, it does not use person-centered language, and the book as a novel is not well-written.Rules
