The Lovereading4Kids comment

Highly Commended for the Carnegie Medal and runner-up for the Children's Book Award, Red Sky in the Morning is remarkably moving and beautifully narrated. A teenage girl worships and adores her disabled little brother but can’t bring herself to tell her friends that he’s anything but normal as she terrified what her peers will think. That is until romance blossoms and her secret gets out but thankfully sympathy and understanding abound.

Synopsis

Red Sky In The Morning by Elizabeth Laird

Twelve-year-old Anna is looking forward to the birth of her baby brother. Ben arrives, but he is handicapped. Anna loves him with her whole heart, but she finds herself unable to admit the truth of Ben's condition to her school friends. Eventually, the truth gets out and leads not to the ridicule Anna expected, but sympathy and understanding.
