Description
 
When the author was 6, her older brother & best friend, Ted, was taken to the hospital. He had to spend 8 years in a plastic bubble, where he died of a rare autoimmune disease at age 17. This is her unflinching, often haunting recollection of life with Ted, woven into a larger exploration of the enormous -- & often unacknowledged -- impact of a sisterís or brotherís death on remaining siblings. Here, she draws on interviews of more than 200 survivors to render a powerful portrait of the range of conditions & emotions, from withdrawal to guilt to rage, that attend such loss. Those who suffer present a complex understanding of the sibling bond, the lifelong impact of the severing of that bond, & the tools needed to heal & move forward.
