Look the World in the Eye by Alice Peterson

Look the World in the Eye

Alice Peterson

Think 'Love Actually' meets 'Rain Man' and you might get some of the flavour of this unusual romantic novel. Katie is 29, beautiful, successful and involved with handsome Sam - but she alternates between avoiding all contact with her brain-damaged sister and blaming herself for doing so. A clear look at the problems faced by the 'lucky' sister, with a happy ending but with some serious stuff along the way.

The house feels so quiet as I walk inside. I go downstairs to the kitchen and expect to see Bells sitting in the corner eating her homemade muesli and prodding the milk-bottle sculpture. I prod it for her.
