I have always considered my sisters to be weird (and, yes, I have always thought of myself as the normal one), so when I saw this book, "The Weird Sisters" by Eleanor Brown, I picked it up. Reading the summary and discovering that the story takes place in Columbus, Ohio, my hometown, I was sure the book was written for me. I am so glad I did. I loved this family and their eccentricities. The father, a Shakespeare scholar, constantly quotes from Shakespeare's plays. The mother is dealing with breast cancer as best she can. And each of the three sisters has a difficulty in her personal life that brings her back to her childhood home. The book is told by all three sisters together, in one voice - a creative and entertaining way to tell the story of their lives, especially because each sister has a secret reason behind her return to the family. I was fascinated with the language as much as the story - and I couldn't put it down. Try it, even if you aren't weird.
