"[Grimes] enthralls us with gripping tales of real people facing illness and tragedy. And the kick comes with how she wisely brings the reader to be motivated to avoid the infectious danger that is truly out there. (I'm getting copies for my kids.)...

Everyone, including physicians, can learn from the stories in this book."(Robert E. Rakel, M.D., Baylor College of Medicine)
"From Luke to Liz, from Meredith to Mitch, the people in this book could be anyone you know―including you. Because you like them and identify with them, you begin to believe, for real, that you, too, might get an STD and suffer the consequences. Every young person who is having sex or thinking about having sex should read this book."(Diane F. Clark, R.N., Family Life Educator, Chesterfield County, Virginia)
"What do teenagers, soccer moms, CEOs, and medical students have in common? Each is at risk of contracting an STD.
