Out of control - that's how Lacey Duval feels in almost every aspect of her life. There's nothing she can do about her parents divorce, there's nothing she can do about the death of her young friend, there's nothing she can do about having diabetes - that's what Lacey believes.
After a special summer at Jenny House, Lacey is determined to put her problems behind her. When she returns to high school, she is driven to become a part of the in crowd and win the attention of gorgeous Todd Larson. But Lacey thinks fitting in means losing weight and hiding her diabetes. She starts skipping means and experimenting with her medication - sometimes ignoring it all together.
Her friends from the summer caution her to face her problems before catastrophe strikes. Is it too late to stop the destructive process Lacey has set in motion?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from READ THIS BOOK!!! This book clearly demonstrates the importance of caring for one's health while living in the midst of a chronic condition. Lacey wants so much to be a normal teenager that she loses sight of the fact that though she is diabetic, she is still normal. If her true friends care anything about her, they will accept the diabetes as being part of her but not defining her. I have asthma and I know that if I don't take my medications consistently, I can end up in ICU on a respirator. I don't keep my condition a secret, because I know those who care about me still see me as a being a normal person in spite of what my Medic Alert bracelet says. Anyone struggling with being a teen with a chronic illness should definitely read this book and any others by Lurlene McDaniel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Staying in control I don't think I've ever read a book that can impact someone as strongly as this one did. I have epilepsy, but the example of what happens when diabetes gets out of control is a strong one that any one with any condition needs to consider if they feel they've "had enough" of their condition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All the Days of Her Life This is just one book in a series of books by McDaniel. In this novel, the main character has diabetes. Through the novel she learns how important it is to have true friends you can trust. I would recommand this book for a young adult as well as the other books in the series. The author has done a great job in telling the emotions people with diffent disease go through. I would rate this book a 9/10.
