This is a wonderful book. I never liked to read but once i picked up this book i was amazed and couldn't stop reading it. It's a wonderful story about a boy who had AIDS. He fought for what he believed in and is very brave. Ryan White is my hero. R.I.P- Ryan White: April 9,1990.

Although I have not finished this book yet, I am verywell into it. I amnot able to put it down. Ryan White was a remarkable boy and never gave up on what he believed in. I think Ryan should be a role model for people of all ages and will touch the hearts of many for years to come.

Ryan White was one of the most moving people I've ever read about. I had to do a project on an amazing person who changed the world for the better but i didnt know who to choose. There was a picture of a normal looking boy in my science book under hemophilia and i just had to do him. My heart connected to Ryan even though i've never met him. He really is my hero.

This story is about a courageous kid who made a difference in world. He was a brave person who was not afraid of speaking out about his illness. And in doing that he won the hearts of millions of people. Including mine.
