(3 1/2 stars out of 5)

“Mom Still Likes You Best: The Unfinished Business Between Siblings” by Jane Isay is a book designed to help with the problems that are all too often a part of the relationships of siblings. Through stories and personal anecdotes, Jane Isay tries to guide us into having a stronger bond with our siblings.

“Mom Still Likes You Best” is a brief 179 pages. It is easy to read and it is broken into 3 parts: “beginnings”, “Life’s Course”, and “Making Choices”.

I think that the story that stands out most to me would be “Message in a Bottle.” Isay tells of a pair of siblings who are torn apart over the parents estate. In this case, the problem was over a Tiffany lamp. I’ve seen this story play out with my own Grandparents and cousins. It’s sad to see families torn apart and acting in an irrational manner.

I give it 3 1/2 stars out of 5.
