Living Doll
By Laura Annawyn Shamas.

When Davy and Maggie receive calls from neighbors about the bizarre behavior of their elderly mother, they are faced with one of the most tragic issues of our day: Alzheimer's disease. What happens when children must assume responsibility for their parents? " is an important subject and Shamas deals with it honestly and with a great deal of understanding."
