Thank you, Pam!


5.0 out of 5 stars A great young teen bookOctober 19, 2012
This review is from: Abby, (Paperback)
7th grade Abby has a lot to say in her school journal. She's the new girl, her mother's been diagnosed with MS, a boy is interested in her, and more. After years of moving around Abby's mother relocates the family to her home town of Monongah, WV stirring up a wealth of family secrets. Through it all Abby remains optimistic. "Wow and viola!"
There are between 250,000 to 350,000 people living with MS in the U.S. The first symptoms occur in people 20 to 40 years old, and twice as often in women. Not surprising there are many children who are being raised by a parent with MS. This book deals deftly with this without overwelming the reader or preaching. Abby's mother's MS is just one facet of Abby's life just as MS does not define those who have the chronic condition. Everyone has problems, that's life. And a good book.
