Editorial Reviews

A valuable text for anyone interested in learning more about skip-generation parenting.

This profoundly moving and educational book shines a spotlight on a critical but largely forgotten part of the AIDS tragedy. Joslin's book is a must read for practitioners, scholars, and anyone interested in understanding family caregiving, and the unique aspects of such caregiving in the wake of AIDS.
