1.0 out of 5 stars What a disappointment..., 8 Aug. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Normal One: Life with a Difficult or Damaged Sibling (Paperback)
I bought this book in hopes it would help me deal with some family problems. Unfortunately it did not. In this case "difficult" and "damaged" siblings appear to be people often with no real problems, other than not being loved by their parents. I do not know if the author is on purpose leaving out details or if she has no concept of what real health issues are. I was looking for something to help me with dealing with a very ill relative and seeing how someone could label as "damaged" their overweight or not very social sibling did not help me, it just made very very angry. I would highly recommend to anyone interested in this book to buy "Mad House: Growing Up in the Shadow of Mentally Ill Siblings " by Clea Simon instead.
