This was a much needed and excellent book when it was first written, but though this edition was updated to include a chapter on AIDS, it is too far out of date for me to really recommend. Some of the stories are poignant, but they no longer reflect America as it is today, and thus lose their relevancy to a parent going through this now. I understand there is a newer edition available, but it, too, was done some ten years ago, and I suspect there are more current books which would better serve.
