The Sibling Connection BookList
Death of a Twin Brother or Sister
Adult and Juvenile Literature
I was able to
find most of these books at the local library, even those that are out of print. Other sources for obtaining books are
used book stores such as
abebooks.com, half.com, or any new book store. Most of the book titles are
linked through to Amazon.com . If anyone clicks through to them and purchases a book, a small portion comes back to help pay for the webspace for this site.
