An Only Child and Her Sister by Casey Maxwell Clair
my rating: 3 of 5 stars
This memoir is written by the older of two daughters. They are very close in age, but their lives are totally different. They are frequently in different places, and most often they are treated quite differently by the parents. Therefore the older one, who seems to be the preferred child, feels like an only child and only occasionally sees her sister.
It's a sad story of neglect and longing. Part of the longing was my own, to find someone to give the girls the love they craved. I seem to get drawn to memoirs, but I may be getting tired of them. So give my 3 star rating a bit of leeway. It could easily have warranted 4 stars by someone who's not tired of this genre.
