Waiting for minimum critic reviews


With needles, strangers, and embarrassing situations, hospitals can be scary places, particularly if you're a teen girl. I can't do anything about those needles. That's up to your doctor. But I can tell you how to make those strangers into friends and give practical ways to avoid embarrassment. This book will make your hospital stay much more enjoyable.

I know, because I cared for girls just like you at one of the top ten children's hospitals in the United States. In down-to-earth terms, I explain what motivates the doctors, nurses, and others who'll be caring for you. I also give the magic secret to becoming one of their favorite patients. And rest easy. You'll find no dry medical jargon here. This is a most practical book about how to take control of your hospital stay and make it more enjoyable.

William Morris (1834-1896) was an accomplished writer, textile designer and artist. A utopian socialist, he was associated with the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood and the English Arts and Craft Movement, and was a founding member of the Socialist League in Britain. Greatly influenced by the medieval period, Morris helped establish the modern fantasy genre though his works The Defence of Guenevere and Other Poems, A Dream of John Ball, and The Well at the World's End. Authors like J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis were greatly influenced by works like The House of the Wolfings, The Roots of the Mountains, and The Wood Beyond the World. Morris was also an accomplished publisher, founding the Kelmscott Press in 1891, whose 1896 edition of the Works of Geoffrey Chaucer is considered a masterpiece of book design.
