"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 interesting. Love the book cover. Have a great day!

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.ReplyDelete

LKT -- Thanks! I like practical books, so I'll come over to take a look.
Darlyn -- Thanks for visiting! And for leaving your TT link.
Excellent teaser, and a very interesting cover. Haven't heard of this one before, but now I'm intrigued.ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
