PositivelyPositively by Courtney Sheinmel is an important book that stands head and shoulders above its peers. With a very real voice, it captures the important "firsts" of a girl who must move on with life after her mother dies of AIDS complications. Count on an emotional journey, including a powerful scene in chapter seven. Read my full review over at YABC!

The description makes me think of the book The Dark Light, by Mette Newth (19th century leper hospital--the MC, also 13, gets leprosy from her mother and ends up at this quarantine hospital). But, it sounds like Positively is maybe more hopeful than Newth's book? (The Dark Light gets preeeeetty depressing before it turns hopeful.)

Thanks, Julie! (And I had to look back to Chapter 7 to check out which scene you meant.)

LOL. What, you mean you don't have the entire book memorized? :)

Yeah, I read that scene aloud to Hubby because it was too good not to share.
