Beth is a spirited woman with mental retardation, who spends nearly every day riding the buses in Philadelphia. The drivers, a lively group, are her mentors; her fellow passengers are her community. When Beth asks her sister Rachel to accompany her on the buses for one year, they take a transcendent journey together that changes Rachel's life in incredible ways and leads her to accept her sister at long lastâteaching her to slow down and enjoy the ride.
Full of life lessons from which any reader will profit, Riding the Bus with My Sister is "a heartwarming, life-affirming journey through both the present and the past...[that] might just change your life" (Boston Herald)

This is one of those books that will stay with me for a long time. This is also a book that will stay on my "read" shelf here at my house because I think I will need to visit it again and again to remind myself what grace and love really look like and just how families CAN heal after all.
I HIGHLY recommend this book. It's a book about love, sisters, family and ALL the crazy that goes along with those.
Rachel and her sister Beth are amazing and the lessons that Beth teaches Rachel without even realizing it will just break into your heart and stay there forever.
