Reviews

"Rawl and Benjamin deftly capture the mindset of middle schooler Paige with anecdotes that reveal the teen's innocence and naïveté. They tackle tough subjects such as suicide delicately but honestly. Readers will come away feeling inspired by Rawl's work as an HIV/AIDS speaker and anti-bullying advocate." -- Kirkus Reviews

"This realistic and honest biography of a young woman living with HIV will draw readers in, shedding light on this difficult topic. The book beautifully conveys what it's like to grow up with HIV, dispelling myths about the virus and imparting useful knowledge." -- School Library Journal
