Can't Jonathan go live somewhere else?
I hear Mars is nice...
Being the brother or sister of a child with special needs has special challenges. And Becca has some great ideas for dealing with them-after she accepts that she can't send her brother Jonathan to another planet!
In this helpful book based on the experiences of a real-life family, Becca discusses finding the right kind of friends, getting quality time with parents, caring about a special needs sibling without becoming another parent, and much more. Told with both humor and honesty, Becca's story-and her kid-tested solutions-are an inspiration to special families everywhere.
