Description

THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER WATERSTONES NON-FICTION BOOK OF THE MONTH SHORTLISTED FOR BOOK OF THE YEAR AT THE BRITISH BOOK AWARDSReuben, aged 38, was living in a home for adults with learning disabilities and struggling to accept that he had Down’s syndrome. Depressed and in a fog of anti-depressants, he hadn’t spoken for over a year. Increasingly isolated, cut off from everyone and everything he loved, Reuben sent a text message: ‘brother. do. you. love. me.’When Manni received this desperate message from his youngest brother, he knew everything had to change. Together they began an extraordinary journey of repair, rediscovering the depths of their brotherhood, one gradual step at a time. Combining Manni’s tender words with Reuben’s compelling illustrations, their story of hope and resilience questions how we care for those closest to us and draws a moving portrait of brotherly love.
