Written for the youngest of young adults, high school students, this book takes an unsparing (but not salacious) look at the origins of the disease. It also offers an unsparing look at the causes of the epidemic, and forthrightly addresses reasons for why it continued to spread for as long as it did. Social, political, economic, and medical challenges faced by, and overcome by, People With AIDS are examined in tough, passionate prose. The lessons Ann Bausum weaves through this powerful book illuminate both the days from a generation ago, and highlight the power of organization--a lesson of particular importance for every generation.
