Written during the early days of HIV epidemic, a young girl gets blood transfusion after surgery and 4 years later has full blown AIDS. The community shuns the family. Interesting and at times poignant but some of the charachaters were not well drawn and there were a few dangling plot lines which I felt needed better resolution. Nevertheless, a good read about a difficult time in western society.
