Members Reviews Popularity Average rating Conversations 12 2 1,, 4. 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? Told with wit, charm and frankness, Another Alice is also a story of friendship, family, growing up and the desire to be normal. Above all it celebrates the power of the human spirit. No current Talk conversations about this book. Alice is a talented tennis player, and a determined young lady, apparently destined for stardom. She has excellent self-discipline, she is strong, and appears to have just the right amount of competitive spirit.
We follow Alice through six years where tennis becomes increasingly important to her. By the time she's eighteen, she's considered one of the top eight young players in the UK.
Then disaster strikes. This isn't unexpected: The first chapter describes her, at the age of 24, desperately hoping that she can have a trial of a new drug, since she has suffered from the disease for the past six years. The latter two-thirds of the book chart the many vain attempts made to discover a drug - or combination of drugs - that can help her. It's extremely well-written, almost as if it were a novel.

By the time I'd finished I felt as if I knew Alice and her family well. I learned a great deal about rheumatoid arthritis, and had quite an insight into the suffering of a young person - not just the physical pain, but the emotional and social problems that go alongside such an illness. I found some parts very moving. Highly recommended.
SueinCyprus Jan 26, Also published as A Will to Win. This was a well written autobiographical account of a young woman's fight with severe Rheumatiod Arthritis RA. I really felt her frustration and anger as her health and mobility deteriorated and she had to give up a potential career in competetive tennis. The first part of the book describes her determined progress up the ladder of competition tennis - she was about to go to America on a tennis scholarship when she was diagnosed with RA and her world fell apart. Some reviewers did not enjoy this section but I felt it really set the scene and highlighted what a profound shock the diagnosis must have been.
The form of RA that Alice had meant a rapid decline from peak health to a state of constant pain and struggle to keep mobile. Severely swollen joints, loss of lubrication in elbows, ankles and knees, and dislocation of joints as they were pulled out of shape by tightening tendons, were just some of the symptoms of this life altering disease.acacglucinog.gq

Tennis was abandonded in the daily struggle to maintain some form of normality; the driving from competition to cometition replaced by constant visits to doctors and specialists. Alice was fortunate to have the support of good friends and family who saw her through the worst times but she also displayed the same determination that had resulted in her meteoric rise in the tennis circuit.
She finishes on a positive note, having finally discovered a medication that alleviated her symptoms and allowed her to come off the steroids.
