Share this book
Love, lust, boys and shopping – 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 arthiritis. 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.
Alice Peterson is the author of the bestselling novels Letters from my Sister (Quercus 2012), Monday to Friday Man (Quercus 2011), Ten Years On (Quercus 2012), You, Me and Him (Quercus 2012) and Look The World In The Eye (Black Swan, 2005). She now works closely with the National Rheumatoid Arthritis Society(NRAS) to raise awareness of the condition, and to highlight particularly how it affects the lives of young sufferers. She lives in West London.
