Publisher's Summary

An astonishing memoir for the untold number of children whose lives have been touched by bullying. Positive is a must-hear for teens, their parents, educators, and administrators - a brave, visceral work that will save lives and resonate deeply.

Paige Rawl has been HIV positive since birth, but growing up, she never felt like her illness defined her. On an unremarkable day in middle school, she disclosed to a friend her HIV-positive status - and within hours the bullying began. From that moment forward, every day was like walking through a minefield. Paige was never sure when or from where the next text, taunt, or hateful message would come. Then one night, desperate for escape, 15-year-old Paige found herself in her bathroom staring at a bottle of sleeping pills.

That could have been the end of her story. Instead, it was only the beginning. Paige's memoir calls for listeners to choose action over complacency, compassion over cruelty - and above all, to be Positive.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

    Story
    "A waste of credit"

    The story revolves around the girl with HIV . The story is too shallow and too monotonous . The book literally puts me to sleep . I thought I bought an 15 hr book .
