Synopsis: Wilhelmina is eight years old. She loves baseball, lives with her Grandmother, and has AIDS. In this story, Willy talks about her illness, exhibiting great courage as she learns to cope with symptoms and the side effects of treatment, to endure classroom taunts, and to find fun and friendship.

From School Library Journal: Kindergarten-Grade 3?Verniero's touching story is a fine introduction to understanding AIDS and coping with discrimination. Like most third graders, Wilhelmina Jones loves school, her Grandma, and baseball. But having AIDS means she also has struggles that most children don't. Sometimes adults try to exclude her from places or activities because they fear her disease. Willy wants to play in the Little League and, despite voices trying to keep her out, her best friend and the coach make sure she is on the team. The simple text, focusing on the ordinary events in a little girl's life, will invite compassion. There is no substantive explanation of the disease, other than to emphasize that modes of transmission exclude casual contact. The watercolor illustrations pleasantly expand the text. Willy is African American and others in the story represent a multicultural blend. Though the underlying truth of her disease is tragic, the story focuses on her strength and hope. ?Virginia E.
