Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Is it possible to live a safe yet full life with life-threatening food allergies? According to Miller, the answer is an unqualified yes. A social worker who maintains the Allergic Girl blog (www.allergicgirl.com), Miller shares her wealth of knowledge and experience gained from living with severe food allergies and coaching food-allergic clients. The book is divided into three sections: an introduction to food allergies, how to cope with them, and how to find the right doctor; several chapters on relationships with self, family, friends, lovers, and food; and discussions of how to manage dining out and participating in social events and celebrations involving food. Throughout, Miller emphasizes building positive relationships, and she coaches readers to be assertive but also patient with others who may not know how to respond to someone with food allergies. She includes sample phrases and conversations to help readers communicate their needs clearly and graciously in a variety of situations. VERDICT As the parent of a child with a severe food allergy, this reviewer found Sloane's approach both positive and practical. Highly recommended for anyone with food allergies, as well as their families and friends.—Janet A. Crum, City of Hope Lib., Duarte, CA
