This book was recommended to me by one of the health professionals that sees Ryan. She assured me that our situation was quite different that the one described in the memoir but she thought that I might enjoying reading the book nonetheless. The author, Dougan, is a Salt Lake native who describes her experiences growing up with a mentally disabled sister and later becoming her caregiver.

She shares the joy and pain of trying to carve out the best life possible for her sister. She tells a sometimes humorous and other times heartbreaking tale which occasionally hit close to home. Dougan was a columnist for the Deseret News for over a decade and her writing style is easy and conversational. Although, at times the memoir jumped around as if some chapters were compilations of past pieces that she'd written.
