My Brother Quentin
by Rachita Denise
My Brother Quentin is a loving tribute to the author's deceased son, William R. Mason III (Trè), who died at two years old from complications of a mitochondria disorder.
In My Brother Quentin, Rachita Denise describes the loving relationship between her son Mehki and his brother Quentin. Quentin is disabled and cannot walk or talk. Because Quentin is different, people sometimes look at him with judgment and treat him unkindly. Mehki loves his brother and does everything he can to support him and show him love. This story teaches children compassion and acceptance of people who are different from themselves.
