While working at Childcare, Desi comes to love Alicia, an abandoned baby who is dying of AIDS.
  TempleofIsrael | Dec 1, 2010 |
Desi volunteers at Childcare, a hospice for babies born HIV positive. Desi connects with Alicia, who is eight-months-old. Desi feels unloved by her parents, believing that they, her mother particularly, expend all of their love on the oldest child, Valerie. Desi learns this is because her mother didn't want to feel attached to Desi due to the cot death of Desi's brother who died before Desi was born. Old wounds are healed through Desi's experience with Alicia. Alicia's condition worsens and she eventually dies of pneumonia. Many facts about AIDS and HIV are woven into the novel. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0553296051, Paperback)

Desi thinks it's totally unfair that innocent baby Alicia was born HIV positive. Now the eight-month-old Alicia lives at Childcare because she was given away by her sick teenage mother. Desi can relate to feeling unloved. Her parents give her all the material things she needs, but there seems to be a wall between her mother and herself.

Working at Childcare has opened Desi's heart and allowed her to feel the love that she's been longing for. But Alicia is not her child and there is no cure for her condition. Can Desi cope with the harsh realities and still believe in love?
