Gerri pushed the EMERGENCY button on the elevator. When the siren went off, she began to jump and scream...If this was a sample of what life with my sister was going to be like, we were probably making a monster mistake...
Neil Oxley doesn't really know his older sister at all, and neither do his parents - because the only place that Gerri has ever lived is an institution. But for now their mother thinks that she is ready to come home.

I read this book in school. I really think it was outstanding. It teaches you a very important lesson: Everyone is different in their own way. Read this book if you like excietment. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading about peoples lifes and how they feel living with a mental challenged sibling.
I love The authors portrayal of Geraldine. Neil has such a crazy which makes the book fun. I wouldn't change the book a bit. READ THIS BOOK IF YOU WANT EXCITEMENT
i thought the book was very good but the ending let it down. i like the characters but i feel that we needed to get to know gerri more the whole story was mainly about neil and i would of liked to know more about margery. i would like there to be a welcome home jellybean 2 but it should be called something like jellybean 2 Gerri's adventure. My class and i very much enjoyed the book.
