    I had no idea the amount of hate and prejudice Ryan White and his family endured over his AIDS diagnoses. It's unreal to me how cruel his community, neighbors, school and friends were to him and his family. I suppose they were just scared of this killer disease that no one had heard of before and wa...

    I met Ryan White and his mother as he was working the circuit, raising AIDS awareness. AIDS wasn't well understood or even very well known about at all (some people had never heard of it) - it was at CBS, where my stepfather worked for the CBS Morning News at the time. I happened to go in to work wi...

    Ryan White came to my Jr. High in FL and I showed him around. I was asked to because I candy striped at a Pediatric Aids Ward In the hospital near me. We really got on well.

    This was a sad and powerful to read. This book is about an incredible boy named Ryan White who has AIDS. He had to go through a terrible phase where everybody around him treated him with disrespect just because he has AIDS. This just goes to show how cruel the world is today. Ryan is a very inspirin...

    Laughed and cried my way all the way through it. Ryan is such a character and he just makes you laugh all the way through. He is so incredible; he accomplished so much! Not just in fighting the prejudice against people with AIDS, but in everything he did; skateboarding and acting, giving speeches, c...

    I borrowed this book from a friend, and it took me a while to get into it. No matter the storyline was slow, Ryan's story is inspiring on so many levels. You always hear stories about children having to overcome adversity, well this was Ryan's life from the first day of his life. First he had to dea...

    This wasn't a book, it was memory of a small soldier. I now have respect for Elton John more than before and (although I always loved him)...Michael Jackson. Ryan White was a great book and I actually thought about crying(but didn't). I gab it a 5 because he beat AIDS not with a cure or a process, h...
