I am a Mother who has a daughter with this disease. I found that she could relate to it because she is a soccer player, just like the character in the book. I appreciate Mrs. Melas for her work on the subject. best regards!

As a parent of a child with JA it's hard to find anything about JA...so it was great to find this book about JA...My daughter is only 3 now, but I love knowing that as she gets older she will have this book.
