For this book, Sandmaier, a journalist and author of The Invisible Alcoholics ( LJ 1/15/80), interviewed 80 adult brothers and sisters in order to delve into their complicated and changeable relationships. Using their narratives to illustrate her points, Sandmaier explores adult sibling relationships and the positive and negative influences they have on our lives.
