Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

It was on a family trip. My father and Uncle Pete were in one car, with Ken and my oldest brother, Paul, in the wide backseat. Following in the next car was my mother, who was driving, and Aunt Helen and my two sisters. My father and uncle got involved in conversation and weren't watching the boys. Nor did the men notice that the doors were unlocked. Apparently Ken grew restless and decided to experiment with the door handle.

So, driving along a two-lane highway at sixty miles an hour, my mother sees my two brothers fly out of the car ahead of her. She swerved, my sisters say, to avoid the boys as they rolled on the pavement.
