Description

Getting along with your sister is never easy--especially if your brains work in different ways Based on the author's childhood, Me and My Sister is a gentle exploration of growing up with an autistic sibling.

Life in a neurodiverse home isn't straightforward: these siblings communicate and behave in different ways. They're also unique people with different likes and dislikes. Misunderstandings are bound to happen But despite the occasional bickering and confusion, maybe this brother and sister can discover new ways to love and help one another.

Siblings of all backgrounds will connect to this playfully illustrated story about embracing difference.
