Neil Oxley's older sister, Geraldine, is coming home for the first time. After spending most of her life in institutions for the retarded, she is finally going to live with her family and adapt to the real world. Skillful juxtaposition of two seemingly incompatible elements--light humor and the serious theme of mental retardation . . . This is a notable piece.--School Library Journal.
