Quicksand

By Anonymous

"An accessible, informative, insider’s view, this book reminds readers that there is still a long way to go." — Kirkus Reviews

Weaving together her own story with straightforward questions and answers, the author explains the real ways that HIV/AIDS can be transmitted and explores the common experiences and emotions that might be encountered by friends and family members of someone who has the virus. She also discusses why HIV/AIDS is often still kept a secret and the importance of treating this condition like any other. With up-to-date medical information that has been thoroughly vetted by experts, this first-person narrative offers an invaluable look at what it is like to watch someone you know battle HIV/AIDS. Back matter includes a glossary, a bibliography, resources for further information, and an index.

  • An introduction to a topic that is rarely discussed with this age group
  • A personal account from someone who knows what it's like to have a family member with HIV/AIDS
  • Fully fact-checked and vetted by experts
