100 Questions and Answers about AIDS: A Guide for Young People

Michael Thomas Ford, Author New Discovery Books $14.95 (0p) ISBN 978-0-02-735424-9
This frank, well organized book brings a wealth of information on AIDS to an audience that sorely needs it. Questions and answers about AIDS are presented within the framework of readers' own experiences and vernacular, which makes the facts and advice especially accessible. Ford zeroes in on issues of particular interest to this age group, among them ``How many young people have HIV?''--a question that has a sobering answer: because so many minors who may well be infected either believe they can't get HIV or do not have access to medical facilities, they have not even been tested. The author offers concise, very candid explanations of the symptoms and progression of AIDS, modes of transmitting the HIV virus and testing for and treating the disease. Affecting, eye-opening interviews with four young people infected with HIV underscore the need for this forthright book. Ford also provides a thorough resource guide of hotlines and organizations from which readers can get information--and, if necessary, help. Ages 11-up. (Oct.)
