Read full description of the books:
"How do I want to die? Oh, I don't know. How about a pillow over my face? It will probably be a family member." Thus illustrates the biting candor of Miranda Bailey, the youngest sibling in this poignant, funny, painfully honest story of bitterly divided family. With their father on his deathbed, eight siblings engage in a feud over property and possessions. Because she has Down's syndrome, Miranda is pulled into a belligerent guardianship dispute. Her favorite sister Nancy is immersed in bankruptcy and foreclosure. Just when Nancy needs to support Miranda the most, she is at her most broken. In unexpected ways, Miranda lifts her up as no one else can. Set in Michigan's remote and economically depressed Upper Peninsula, THE NORTH SIDE OF DOWN examines some important questions about society, illustrating the paralyzing legal position of people with disabilities, and the stigma of the homeless. It shows how two sisters' love for each other transcends loss, grief and upheaval within a hopelessly dysfunctional family. In the midst of chaos, it is the misfits who manage to shine.
