Editorial Reviews


Juvenile Arthritis: The Ultimate Teen Guide gives you an in-depth orientation to JIA and what you can do to live well with the disease. . . . The book is written directly to teens, in a language that's easy to understand, yet does not speak down to the reader. (HealthCentral, April 2010)

Rouba gives advice on living with the disease, including treatment options, diet and exercise tips, and managing mental and physical health. (VOYA, June / July 2009)

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Arthrts Natl Rsrch Fndtn on April 22, 2009
Format: Hardcover
Arthritis is a debilitating, painful and progressive disease. Juvenile forms of arthritis are just as virile, often stunting growth and robbing youngsters of their childhood physicality. The effect on families is often devastating. No one seems to know that arthritis so profoundly affects over 300,000 children in America alone.

Kelly Rouba has written a book to give young people and their families the skills and information they need to more effectively deal with their arthritis. This book should be automatic reading for every family with a child diagnosed with juvenile arthritis. The author, herself a victim of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis since the age of 2, gives families hope with her thorough discussion of arthritis research underway. Ms. Rouba is a national spokesperson for the Arthritis National Research Foundation, advocating for young arthritis patients, to increase public awareness of juvenile arthritis and the critical need for research. I applaud Kelly's wonderful gift of this book -- families across the country will benefit immensely.

Format: Hardcover
The Ultimate Teen Guide to Juvenile Arthritis is a well written, informative book. Kelly provides the reader with life experiences geared to assist those battling with JRA along with friends and family of those who have been diagnosed with JRA. Kelly's book is also a useful tool for any healthcare professional who assists in the care of patients with arthritis.
