Author: McHugh, M.
Description: Mary McHugh writes about her experience growing up with a sibling with a disability, and interviews many other people in the same situation. This is a book for those with disabled siblings. However, it also looks at the attention and time parents spend on a child who is "different", as gifted children can be considered, and how siblings of that child can come to terms with that and build a healthy, special relationship with the sibling.
