Highly Commended for the Carnegie Medal and runner-up for the Children's Book Award, RED SKY IN THE MORNING is remarkably moving and beautifully narrated. Twelve-year-old Anna is looking forward to the birth of her baby brother. Ben arrives, but is disabled and will never be like other children. Anna loves him with her whole heart but she finds herself unable to admit the truth of Ben's condition to her school friends. Eventually the truth gets out and leads not to the ridicule Anna expected, but sympathy and understanding.
