Did you know that HIV infection is the ninth leading cause of death in adults ages 25-44? No matter how astonishing the statistical facts are, young people still think it can't happen to them, and therefore, will take any risk. Because of that risk, Can Broken Wings Still Fly? addresses the issues of HIV/AIDS as well as teen pregnancy. It candidly looks at how AIDS and teen pregnancy are affecting our teens today and meticulously weaves the subject matter into a riveting story.
Sasha Campbell is a very studious and mature seventeen-year-old. Tauryn Miller, her younger sister, is an average tenth grader who thinks she has it going on until she comes face to face with death. Sasha willingly goes through the fire with her younger sister as she confronts the possibilities of being pregnant and HIV positive. Sasha develops a strong relationship with God and draws on the teachings of her grandmother to find the strength she needs to help her sister.
