KANSAS, SEPTEMBER 14TH 2001
Ben Ammiano is mentally disabled, and a creature of habit. Any change to his routine sends him into a spin. But now his long lost brother has reappeared, and Ben's simple, ordered world has turned upside down.
When You Were Older is the extraordinary, moving story of two brothers who must bury their pasts and teach each other to survive . . .
