Summary:
The old adage says that the apple doesnt fall far from the tree, meaning that children usually resemble their parents. But what happens when the apples fall somewhere elsesometimes a couple of orchards away, sometimes on the other side of the world?
In this young adult edition, Andrew Solomon profiles how families accommodate children who have a variety of differences: families of people who are deaf, who are dwarfs, who have Down syndrome, who have autism, who have schizophrenia, who have multiple severe disabilities, who are prodigies, who commit crimes, and more.
