              How to be a Sister a Love Story with a Twist of Autism

              How to be a Sister a Love Story with a Twist of Autism (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              By Garvin, Eileen

              Here we are, then, Margaret. You and me. You have made my life indescribably different from what I could ever have imagined. Eileen Garvin's older sister, Margaret, has autism. Growing up with Margaret wasn't easy--her unpredictable behavior was often embarrassing in public and s...tressful at home. Losing her favorite blue plastic hairbrush could leave Margaret inconsolable for hours. But just as small crises are larger-than-life with Margaret, everyday moments--a shared smile, a phone call--become monumental triumphs in this story of two sisters who stick together through it all. A candid, modern memoir, How to Be a Sister will strike a chord with anyone who sometimes struggles to connect with a loved one--especially a sibling. Readers will be inspired by the author's lifelong endeavor to forge a meaningful relationship with her sister, and by the unique perspective (and well-developed sense of humor!) that she gains along the way.

An exquisite debut that combines a moving tale of friendship with a fascinating primer on bees. --People This heartwarming, uplifting story will make you want to call your own friends, not to mention grab some honey. --Good Housekeeping Three lonely strangers in a rural Oregon town, each working through grief and life's curveballs, are brought together by happenstance on a local honeybee farm where they find surprising friendship, healing--and maybe even a second chance--just when they least expect it. Forty-four-year-old Alice Holtzman is stuck in a dead-end job, bereft of family, and now reeling from the unexpected death of her husband. Alice has begun having panic attacks whenever she thinks about how her life hasn't turned out the way she dreamed. Even the beloved honeybees she raises in her spare time aren't helping her feel better these days. In the grip of a panic attack, she nearly collides with Jake--a troubled, paraplegic teenager with the tallest mohawk in Hood River County--while carrying 120,000 honeybees in the back of her pickup truck. Charmed by Jake's sincere interest in her bees and seeking to rescue him from his toxic home life, Alice surprises herself by inviting Jake to her farm. And then there's Harry, a twenty-four-year-old with debilitating social anxiety who is desperate for work. When he applies to Alice's ad for part-time farm help, he's shocked to find himself hired. As an unexpected friendship blossoms among Alice, Jake, and Harry, a nefarious pesticide company moves to town, threatening the local honeybee population and illuminating deep-seated corruption in the community. The unlikely trio must unite for the sake of the bees--and in the process, they just
