"My soccer coach said I'd score more goals because no one would want to touch me." Paige Rawl was born HIV-positive, but she wasn't diagnosed until she was twelve. It was just two weeks after that diagnosis that she confided about her condition to her best friend. The news quickly spread and soon the unrelenting bullying began. By the time she was fifteen, the cruelty had taken its toll and this gentle young woman was contemplating suicide. In this truly empowering memoir, Paige describes why and how she became an HIV and AIDS activist and explains why it is so, so important that young people know what even their bantering bullying can do. Editor's recommendation.
