This book is about a girl named Gerri who has spent most of her life in a home for retarded children. When she comes home her family's lives become chaotic to the point where they want to give up. It's an alright book, but it's sad.
Neil Oxley doesn't really know his older sister at all, and neither do his parents-because the only place that Gerri has ever lived is an institution. Gerri is retarded. But now their mother thinks that she is ready to come home.
