Against the backdrop of his teenage sister's car accident--in which a dump truck filled with sand slammed into the small car carrying her and her friends--Jon Pineda chronicles his sister Rica's sudden transformation from a vibrant high school cheerleader to a girl wheelchair bound and unable to talk. For the next five years of her life, her only ability to communicate was through her rudimentary use of sign language. Lyrical in its approach and unflinching in its honesty, "Sleep in Me" is a heartrending memoir of the coming-of-age of a boy haunted by a family tragedy.
