While My Sister Sleeps
by Barbara Delinsky
fiction
From The Jacket:Molly and Robin Snow are sisters in the prime of their lives. So when Molly learns that Robin, an Olympic athlete and the favorite child, has suffered a massive heart attack, the news couldnít be more shocking. At the hospital, the Snow family receives a grim prognosis: Robin may never regain consciousness. Feelings of guilt and jealousy flare up as Robinís family struggles to cope and their relationships are put to the ultimate test. Itís up to Molly to make the tough decisions, and she soon makes discoveries that destroy some of her most cherished beliefs about the sister she thought she knew. Once again Delinsky brings us a masterful family portrait, filled with thought provoking ideas about the nature of life itself, how emotions affect the decisions we make, and how letting go can be the hardest thing to do and the greatest expression of love all at the same time.
A great read with great character development; I felt like I knew each person. My emotions ranged from anger to happiness as the family dealt with the struggles of the grim prognosis of Robin. The main character in particular showed exceptional strength in the face of this adversity,other members did not handle the stress as well which I believe is very realistic. Barbara did a fantastic job of capturing this real life trauma.

I felt many emotions when reading this book. Anger, sadness and frustation. I still don't know how I would react to such a thing.
