Summary
"In 1985 the eyes of the world turned to the Hoosier State and the attempt by a thirteen-year-old Kokomo, Indiana, teenager to do what seemed to be a simple task join his fellow classmates at Western Middle School in Russiaville, the school to which his Kokomo neighborhood was assigned. The teenager, Ryan White, however, had been diagnosed with Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome from contaminated blood-based products used to treat his hemophilia. It was my decision, White said, to live a normal life, go to school, be with friends, and enjoying day to day activities. It was not going to be easy. In Price's book, White, who succumbed to his disease in 1990, comes across as a normal teenager who met an impossible situation with uncommon grace, courage, and wisdom. "It was difficult at times, to handle; but I tried to ignore the injustice, because I knew the people were wrong", White said. "My family and I held no hatred for those people because we realized they were victims of their own ignorance"."--Provided by publisher
