School Library Journal Review

Gr 9 Up-This tightly focused title looks at specific problems or issues that teens with diabetes may face. Chapters include the importance of establishing the patterns of blood-sugar readings, the types and uses of various medications, and the importance of diet and exercise, even with insulin-dependent diabetes. Interesting facts are included about the history of the disease, but most of the book is specifically geared toward managing and controlling it. The types of insulin are described, along with information about giving oneself injections and some complications of the disease such as neuropathy. Small school libraries may find this title a bit too specific for their needs, but public libraries will definitely want this informative book on their shelves.-Lynn Evarts, Sauk Prairie High School, Prairie du Sac, WI (c) Copyright 2010.
