Read in March, 2009

Jessica Handler's memoir tells her story of being the "well sibling" in a family of 3 daughters, one who dies as a child from leukemia and one who dies as a young adult from a rare blood disease. The toll this takes on her family and her own life is shared through recollections from the many journals Jessica has written and kept through the years. The story is heart wrenching but I found it choppy - some things are briefly mentioned but never fully explained and I was never really able to become fully engaged emotionally in the story.
