While My Sister Sleeps by Barbara Delinsky

Molly and Robin Snow are sisters in the prime of their lives. So when Molly learns that Robin—an Olympic athlete and the favorite child—has suffered a massive heart attack, the news couldn’t be more shocking. At the hospital, the Snow family receives a grim prognosis: Robin may never regain consciousness.

Feelings of guilt and jealousy flare up as Robin's family struggles to cope and their relationships are put to the ultimate test. It’s up to Molly to make the tough decisions, and she soon makes discoveries that destroy some of her most cherished beliefs about the sister she thought she knew.

This was a fast moving book with a lot of tough life choices. Don't know if I'm on a roll here, but my last several books have been pretty thought provoking. While My Sister Sleeps had me in tears a few times, but all in all I would recommend it.

sounds like a good read! asked me about banana seeds...they are HUGE!!! they look like black rocks...about 3/4 inch can get them at most garden centers...easy to grow...take a long time to germinate....and the larger the pot...the larger that plant will get...Last year I had one with leaves two feet wide and 5 feet long!!! It got tossed when it showed bugs were eating away at it and I could not get rid of them...rather sacrifice one plant ....than to lose all my houseplants!!!
Have a great vacation!!!
