Library Media Connection, October 2010

"The book is user friendly, easy to read and would be an asset to a middle school library."

Southwest Ohio and Neighboring Libraries, January 18, 2011

"This book contains a wealth of information on the disease . . . as well as strategies for reducing or eliminating these complications . . . The books in this series are concise and engaging for high school students, particularly those who might have a particular disorder or know someone who does. They would be useful as resources for student enrichment and projects in biology or health classes. They would prove especially valuable for any teacher, because students with these disorders can often be found in their classes."

"The book is well-sourced . . . It is highly recommended for biology classrooms and high school libraries."

Children's Literature

Science Books & Films, November 2010
