Fasten Your Seatbelt: A Crash Course on Down Syndrome for Brothers and Sisters
By Brian G. Skotko and Susan P. Levine

Fasten Your Seatbelt is the first book written exclusively for teens with a brother or sister with Down syndrome. In an easy-to-read, question-and-answer format, nearly 100 questions are tackled on a broad range of their most common issues and concerns. This book gives teens the green light to explore their own feelings and questions about their sibling with Down syndrome and how their relationship may change in the future. Sue Levine and Brian Skotko answer the toughest questions from their book on a YouTube Channel dedicated exclusively to brothers and sisters who have siblings with Down syndrome.
