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.

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

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

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.
