Day 10 - A Book That Gave You Hope

      

I have to go with this series. While they had me in tears from the very start to end, I love it with every fiber of my being. This swedish series is set when the HIV/AIDS came to Sweden during the 80's, and follows a number of characters that must struggle. Both with the illness itself, but also their sexualities and how their orientation affects their families. It's hard for me to say exactly why or how this story gave me hope, but it did.  The fact that this story is being printed is a statement in itself for me, and it gives me hope for acceptance, and for love.

Without a doubt these three. All of them recommended by the same librarian at my school.
