Riassunto: Discusses what cystic fibrosis is and how it affects the body. Also explains how the disease is diagnosed and managed currently and how it may be managed in the future. Includes information on finding support and living with the condition.
From School Library Journal:
Grade 5-9-In a succinct, approachable manner, each author discusses the disease, its effect on the body, diagnosis, treatment, how it affects young people who either have it or live with someone who does, and looks ahead to potential breakthroughs. Sentences are simple, topic headings are bold and clear, and complex information is smoothly explained. Inset anecdotes, interesting facts, and personal quotes carry the text along briskly, and the tone is crisp yet comforting. The attractive layout features glossy paper with brightly colored illustrations, highlighted sections, and plenty of white space. In Cystic Fibrosis, Monroe finds a fine balance between the disease's essentially incurable nature and realistic optimism on the part of those afflicted. Noteworthy in Breast Cancer are the clear descriptions of the stages of the illness and photos of treatments, which are explanatory but not frightening, as well as helpful ideas to enable the children of patients to remain hopeful and supportive. The glossary is almost unnecessary, since most difficult words are defined contextually. Excellent introductions to the topics.
