"When Mira Acharya's father dies, the challenges facing her Indo-Canadian family become that much more daunting. Ravi, her autistic older brother, requires special care but longs to be just like other children. Their mother must work full time to keep a roof over their heads and still make time to be a parent to an over-achiever and a developmentally challenged child. As much as Mira loves her mother and brother, she resents the situations in which living with them places her. It is only when Mira is older that she realizes a truth she has been missing all along: though her family's experience may be unusual, what holds them together - has always held them together - is universal. Shashi Bhat''s debut novel, The Family Took Shape, is a touching, hilarious, and endearingly honest story about one unique family's search for happiness in Canadian suburbia."--Publisher.
