Publisher's Summary

For the 10th anniversary of this beloved, heartwarming true story, Hachette Audio is releasing an audiobook edition, read by the author.

Beth is a spirited woman with an intellectual disability who spends nearly every day riding the buses in her Pennsylvania city. The drivers, a lively group, are her mentors; her fellow passengers are her community. Beth, who lives independently and has a boyfriend, is a joyful, endearing, and feisty individual. Her single sister, Rachel, a writer and professor, hides her emotional isolation and loneliness behind a driven lifestyle that keeps her "hyperbusy, hypercritical, hyperventilating." When Beth asks Rachel to accompany her on the buses for one year, they take a transcendent journey that changes Rachel's life in incredible ways, leads her to accept her sister at long last-and teaches her to slow down and enjoy the ride.

Rachel Simon's memoir Riding the Bus with My Sister was made into a television movie starring Rosie O'Donnell and Andie McDowell, directed by Anjelica Huston.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.
