The Kids Are All Right by Diana and Liz Welch, with Amanda and Dan Welch – A From Left to Write Book Club

The Kids Are All Right by Diana and Liz Welch, with Amanda and Dan Welch

What happens when both parents die, leaving young children behind? Have they prepared? How do siblings cope in the midst of trauma? Read the stories the From Left to Write bloggers are sharing today, inspired by memoir The Kids Are All Right by siblings Diana and Liz Welch, with Amanda and Dan Welch.

About the book:

“Perfect is boring.”

Well, 1983 certainly wasn’t boring for the Welch family. Somehow, between their handsome father’s mysterious death, their glamorous soap opera star mother’s cancer diagnosis, and a phalanx of lawyers intent on bankruptcy proceedings, the four Welch siblings managed to handle each new heartbreaking misfortune together. But all that changed with the death of their mother. While nineteen year-old Amanda was legally on her own, the three younger siblings—Liz, 16; Dan, 14 and Diana, 8—were each dispersed to a different set of family friends.
