When Heroes Die By Penny Raife Durant

    This book moved me more than I was expecting it too. As well as being an examination of AIDS, it was about grief, and how young people can deal with grief when someone close to them dies. I didn't want to get choked up when I read this book, but I absolutely did. None of the tension felt manufactured, but some of the characters, particularly the best friend and the love interest, were one-dimensional. 9780689317644
