Review

''The author's transparency into her own story of diabetes is courageous and informative. This memoir is a moving read that will appeal to young women and diabetes sufferers alike.''
--Library Journal

''. . . hands-down the most 'relatable' book about life with diabetes I've ever read.''
--Amy Tenderich, Diabetes Mine

''Amy Ryan really understands what it takes to manage this relentless disease. Her view into type 1 diabetes is personal, frank, memorable and right on target.''
--William V. Tamborlane, MD, Professor and Chief of Pediatric Endocrinology, Yale School of Medicine

Shot is a heartfelt and moving tale about real life with type 1 diabetes. If you have type 1 diabetes, or care about someone who does, you'll love this book, and benefit from the love, aggravation and wisdom in Amy Ryan's story.''
--William H. Polonsky, Behavioral Diabetes Institute

''The book took me back to my early days when I was first diagnosed, which were good to remember; I could see how far I've come and how successful I am now. Shot is a realistic portrayal of first being diagnosed with diabetes, finding your way and learning how to tame it, remembering that along with glucose tabs, Amy's last message of hope that should also be our constant companion.''
--Riva Greenberg, A1c Champion, diabetesstories.com

''Amy Ryan's important new book tells the truth about living with type 1 diabetes; the tears and fears, but also the inspiration and courage to overcome. If you've ever wished you could find someone who totally understands what you're going through with this disease, Amy will be like a new best friend.''
--Dan Hurley, award-winning journalist and author of Diabetes Rising: How a Rare Disease Became a Modern Pandemic, and What to Do About It --Book Reviews
