Overview

Ethan Castillo had it all-he was popular, he surfed, and he had good friends at Shore View High. Then one night of un-protected sex changed everything. Now, he has to learn to live with a positive diagnosis for HIV-but help comes from a most unexpected source.

HIV/AIDS is a scary and dangerous disease. But it can't be spread by: shaking hands with someone who has HIV/AIDS, hugging someone who has HIV/AIDS, sharing eating utensils with someone who has HIV/AIDS, being in the same room with someone who has HIV/AIDS, touching something that someone with HIV/AIDS has touched, breathing the same air as someone with HIV/AIDS. The only way to become infected with HIV is through the transfer of certain body fluids. This book will tell you more.

    This book is one of the best treatments of gender issues for teens that I've encountered. As a professional who works with the population, I praise the authors for their sensitive and informative book. The story is well-crafted, the characters engaging, and the information accurate and comprehensive. I recommend this book heartily to those who seek to promote tolerance and understanding in teenagers. Particularly in light of recent events, this book should be in every high school library and every guidance office. I'd go so far as to say it should be required reading for teenagers!
