    This book sounds like a great read! I often wonder what my daughter is thinking when I’m pressing her on whether or not she may be low…never thought about it making her feel like described in the book. Looking forward to reading it!

    I am so glad that someone who personally knows what diabetes is like wrote a book with a T1 character. I can’t wait to read it.

    This sounds like a really interesting book. If you folks don’t send it to me, I’ll have to visit the library! I’m curious how the diagnosis in 1967s US compares to my diagnosis in 1972s Ireland.

    I love this quote:

    “The sense of being infantilized and being treated as a kid who isn’t aware of his or her emotions or state of wellness… there’s nothing more annoying than that,” he said.

    It expresses the the anger I often felt in my early D-years with close family members who asked if I was low. Sometimes I was but sometimes I wasn’t and as a 30 year old adult I often resented my legitimate emotional expressions being first interpreted as simply explained as a BG low.

    Now, as a much older adult I really feel for the parents of T1s as they move through adolescence. It gets so complicated!

    I want to read this book.

    The subject of plot, aside from the diabetes, sounds suspiciously current.

    Read the book — loved it — with or without T1 references. I thought the author authentically captured the continuous monologue going on inside a T1 head without making it the story. This is realistic fiction! I enjoyed the historical background the plot hinged upon. I recommend.

    I love Studio 360, and had no idea Kurt Anderson had diabetes!

    Good for “DMBooks” to have the vision to publish a book that offers T1′s a character they can relate to. 3 cheers for “DMBooks”!!!

    DMBooks. Sounds like some good reading. DMBooks. I would also love to see someone come up with a hard-boiled detective who is a T1. DMBooks. Imagine if Hercule Poirot or Miss Marple were T1s. DMBooks.

    I don’t generally like political oriented books but this sounds very interesting! Even if I don’t win it, I’ll probably buy it.

    YAY DM Books!!! I would love to win this book. Not only wouild I love to read it, but i would encourage my husband to read it also. He needs a deeper understanding of my diabetes world, in such that he often thinks that i am low, when i am just plain angry, or grumpy. i hate that he goes there right off the hop instead of taking what i’m saying and actually listening. it’s only after i test and show him the results does he actually listen to what i’m saying!!! it makes me even more annoyed, angry and/or grumpy!!!

    This book sounds like a good one to me as I grew up in the 60s and have T1. I think I could relate to it and would love to read it. Another great review by DMBooks.
