There are between 250,000 to 350,000 people living with MS in the U.S. The first symptoms occur in people 20 to 40 years old, and twice as often in women. Not surprising there are many children who are being raised by a parent with MS. This book deals deftly with this without overwelming the reader or preaching. Abby's mother's MS is just one facet of Abby's life just as MS does not define those who have the chronic condition. Everyone has problems, that's life. And a good book.
Though it's been many years since I was in 7th grade, the book brought back memories: new school, new acquaintances, a new teacher, and pen pals. I felt I was walking in Abby's shoes.
We are eagerly looking forward to Ms. McCombs' next book.
I liked this book because Abby lives every single issue, from a silly fight with one of the popular girls in school to hurtful comment about how her mom walks, with a positive and calm attitude (I wish to have it!).
I recommend "Abby" to kids and adult as well.
