Teaser Tuesday: Saving Stanley

"I'd never expected to be held accountable for my actions as a ten-year-old, and I certainly never thought they would cost me my brother's love.  Now I took his side in any argument he had with my parents, but he didn't seem to notice."

-- from "With Equals Alone" in Saving Stanley: The Brickman Stories by Scott Nadelson.

This is a terrific collection of interrelated stories about Daniel Brickman and his family.  Here, a young Daniel struggles to be loved by his older, now in high school, brother.  There is a lot of truth in these stories.  Great reading.

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading, where you can find the official rules for this weekly event.

Sounds really good. You're always reading really good stuff.

My teaser is of a more practical nature. Still enjoyable though.

Sherrie -- The cover "photo" is from a Portland animal clinic. It is certainly eye-catching! Thanks for the link.

Joy -- I recommend it. The stories all fit together, not chronologically, but they are all about the same family. So reading them together is like a novel. I loved it.
