The Sound Of Letting Go
Stasia Ward Kehoe
from Penguin Books Australia...
Daisy Meehan has always been good: a good sister, helping uncomplainingly with her severely autistic brother, Steven; a good daughter, playing the third parent in her fraught household; a good musician, winning accolades for her trumpet playing; a good student; a good friend.
But when her parents make a major decision about Steven that will break their family in two, Daisy decides it's time to stop helping, stop trying, stop tiptoeing, stop ignoring her crush on slacker Dave . . .
and start being bad.
By turns poignant, funny, and heartbreaking, this is the story of a girl faced with a life-altering question: how do you know when to hold on and when - and how - to let go?
