Sarah S | 5 comments I believe it was written in the 1990s for pre-teens. I was 10 to 12 years old when I read this.

The main character was a young girl whose older brother was very active but became paralyzed after an accident. He was very bitter about this and the sister was confused by his situation. If I remember correctly she enlists a neighbor or another adult to help her brother come to terms.

I know covers change but the edging was light blue and the main image was a drawing of a teenage boy, outside, looking energetically into the distance with his sister standing behind him.

Where and when is it set? Country/region, decade.

Sarah S | 5 comments I would say it took place in the 1990s in United States suburbs.
