Year 4, Book 24

24. While My Sister Sleeps by Barbara Delinsky
I really didn’t like this book. I didn’t like any of the characters. The story revolves around a family who owns some famous nursery in New England where they all work except for the oldest daughter who is a famous runner training for the Olympics. She winds up having a heart attack while running which causes severe brain damage. The story basically involves the family members coming to terms with what happened as well as with each other. The characters are painted in such broad strokes that they really are just one note characters and then they manage to change way too easy at the end of the book so that everything ends happily. I give it a 3 out of 10.
