3… 2… 1… Done!

By Melissa Gijsbers


Tony has a problem – a problem called George, who happens to be his little brother, who happens to fake being sick. He’s so good at it, he doesn’t have to do chores or go to school.

But there is something about George… something that doesn’t feel right.

And what does Tony’s Rubik’s Cube and lightning fast fingers have to do with it?

“A very fun and enjoyable read, for cubers and non-cubers alike!” Feliks Zemdegs, Rubik’s Cube World Champion


This week is ME/CFS Awareness week, and this book was written shortly after the author’s son was diagnosed with myalgic encephalomyelitis, more commonly known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, age 11.

3… 2… 1… Done! focusses on Tony, the brother of George who has ME/CFS. Siblings are often forgotten when it comes to living with chronic illness, and this book shows that there are things they can to do to understand what their sibling is going through and something they can do to help.

A very inspiring book about the struggles of ME Chronic Fatigue and how it effects not just the person suffering the illness, but the families supporting that person. My son loved the fund raising challenge the brother arranged to raise money and awareness of his brothers illness. He also loved how he wanted to find out more about his brothers illness so he could explain it better to his friends. He found the book positive and personally inspiring.
