Synopsis

Upside Down and Backwards A Sibling's Journey Through Childhood Cancer by Julie Greves, Katy Tenhulzen, Fred Wilkinson

Ever since his first ride, Bryce has been obsessed with roller coasters. The hiss of the ride starting, the anticipation, the slow climb up that first steep hill, the pause just before the car careens over the steep drop. But when Bryce's sister Paige is diagnosed with cancer, his life becomes one of the craziest roller coasters he would ever ride. His parents are suddenly distracted and stressed. It seems like Paige always gets her way. He has trouble keeping up with school. He misses out on time with his friends. And he worries about Paige. Will his family ever get back to normal? With the help of his family, friends, and support group, Bryce starts to feel steadier and not so out of control. Together with his family, he gets through the ups, downs, twists, and flips of cancer. Includes a Note to Readers.
