Another Alice : An Inspiring True Story of a Young Woman's Battle to Overcome Rheumatoid Arthritis Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Love, lust, boys and coursework - the main worries of a teenage girl?

Not for eighteen-year-old Alice Peterson, who, at the height of her youth and an extremely promising tennis career, was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis.

In the midst of shock and denial, and the enduring question, 'Isn't it old people who get arthritis?', Alice had to learn to live with what quickly turned from the odd ache and pain to a very aggressive form of the illness, and rediscover a new path in life. "Another Alice" is at times utterly heart-breaking, and at others laugh-out-loud.

Here is her story of how, armed with humour and courage, she left behind a world she loved to overcome the pain of a degenerative illness.

Told with wit, charm and frankness, "Another Alice" is also a story of friendship, family, growing up and the desire to be 'normal'.

But, above all, it celebrates the power of the human spirit.
