About the Author:

Bill Dodds has three children, the oldest of whom is learning disabled. Mr. Dodds is a volunteer in the Special Olympics and other advocacy groups for mentally challenged citizens. He is also the author of The Hidden Fortune. He lives with his wife and family in Mountlake Terrace, Washington.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-7-- Now completing sixth grade, Charlie has reached a point in his life where he's being deluged with decisions. His first-person narration, mostly a monologue, informs readers of his struggle to balance a need to belong with a sense of right and wrong. Adolescent pressures are piling up, from Charlie's peers, baseball team, family, and girls. Complicating every facet of his life is his older sister, Annie, who has Down's syndrome and is severely retarded. Adding levity to this brief novel are Charlie's other sisters, four-year-old identical twins who lack presence and personality but whose name game (they are called "by any two things that go together. Salt and Pepper. Bacon and Eggs. Death and Destruction") is clever, literary fun. The parents are rather flat but well-intentioned people, struggling with a difficult family and demonstrating their love and concern at all times. Charlie is clearly the star of his own tale. His worries, his voice, and his needs are as real as the kids hanging around on every corner; his understanding of Annie as he moves from humiliation to compassion will touch something inside readers. For Love of Jeremy (Dutton, 1990) by Krantz offers more information on Down's syndrome. --Susan Oliver, Tampa-Hillsborough County Public Library System
