This gruesome book is fantastic at really getting the message across that the medical field has struggled. It also discusses how a population can get caught up in scare tactics and how misinformation can lead to a "cure," but really be more detrimental to a person, even deadly. This is a very graphic book, BUT it's perfect for giving accurate information about a topic that doesn't get a lot of promotion among teens and tweens.
