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.
