****Ana's Story by Jenna Bush
This is an amazing story of a young girl, Ana. She was born with HIV from her parents, who both died from it. This is the story of her struggles with trying to find a loving home to stay at, and also other problems that tie into it. Read this book to find out Ana's story, and see if she lived to do what her father's last words were to her!

****Ana’s Story is a great book. The best part of all is that it is true. It is about a girl with HIV/AIDS. Both of Ana’s parents died and left her and her sister, Isabel, to live their own lives. After moving from abuse twice, she goes to a Reform Center and meets Berto. Little does she know Berto will change her life forever. Throughout the story Ana has to overcome many of the same obstacles that we have to too. Ana’s Story is a great book and I highly recommend it!

**** Ana's story is really a great book. I love that the whole story is a true story and that it was really detailed so I couldn’t stop reading it. It is about this girl who has HIV and it tells us her story ever since she was young till now. Both her parents died from AIDS and left her and her sister, Isabel, to live and make sure they that they looked out for one another. She moves around allot because of family and money. She meets guys and falls in love with one of them. Then something happens that changes her life. But I recommend this book to everyone. It’s a book that is really hard to put down.

**** Ana's Story is a heart warming story of a young girls stuggle to overcome AIDS/HIV. Ana goes through a series of Mental, physical, and sexual abuse after the death of her mother, father,and baby sister all die from AIDs/HIV. She moves all over the place trying to find a place that she will be away from the abuse,and will be able to feel like she doesnt have to hide the fact that she has AIDS. She then goes to a Reform Center, where she meets a boy the same age as her named Berto. Berto changes Ana's life for the best. They then together go through the same things we teenagers face everysingle day of our lives. I would really recommend that everyone reads this book!

**** Ana's Story is one of the best books i have read in along time. Its based on a teen, Ana who is struggling with HIV, abuse, and deaths of her mother and father. Moving place to place is hard for anyone but especially hard for Ana who feels that no one really wants to take care of here except for her aunt that financially cant. This is a book that once you start reading you cant put down. Its really good for young adults to read because they can relate to what Ana is going through. I would recommend this book to everyone.

**** Ana's Story is a story filled with sadness and abuse which starts with both her parents and a baby sister dying of AIDS. Ana is faced with living with AIDS and is moved from home to home because of sexual and physical abuse. Ana moves on because of her promise to her father to take care of her sister, Isabel, until she finally comes to a Reform Center, and meets other people in the same situation. She meets a boy, Berto, who changes her life in a harder way, but also gives her a reason to not give up. I thought this book was interesting because it is a true story. I highly recommened this book, you won't want to put it down it is a quick read.

Later she finds out that she's pregnant and she faces a lot of big problems. I recommened this book to everyone.

**** Ana’s Story was a really great book about a girl overcoming many different struggles in her life. One thing that was really good about it too, I thought, was that it was based on a real girl’s life. Ana was born and infected with HIV/AIDS from her mom and dad who both died from the disease. Ana goes through many struggles in this book like abuse, her HIV, and moving around from place to place. She meets Berto at the Reform Center where her life changes. Ana’s story was a really great book that I would definitely recommend to other young adult readers.

********* I loved Ana’s story. It was one of the best books I have read this year. It’s about o girl that was born with hivs because her mother had them. She goes thru a lot in her life but she handles it really good. I would recommend this book to anyone.

**** Ana’s Story was very good!!! Compelling emotional and true. The true life story of a young girl growing up in poverty in Latin America with HIV. Her story is scary hurtful and you can’t help but feel that you want to help her. It was a very quick read because you get so sucked into her life like you are watching a movie. You feel the pain she feels and you want to cry along with her tears. If you like stories based on true life you need to read Ana’s Story.

Stefani R said...

**** I thought that the book Ana’s story was good. There were a few parts that were kind of slow, but there were also a few that got you pretty into it. It is a true story about Ana’s life, about the hard things that she went through. She was born with the HIV/AIDS virus that was passed on by her mom. She has had to live through deaths, molestation, and abuse throughout her life. After reading this book you will feel like you really know her. I’d recommend this book to anyone.

Steph L said...

*** Ana’s story was really good plus I like that it is based on a true story. I like it cause you there is a lot of good information about HIV and you have to really put yourself in Ana’s shoes. I also like it because Ana I think is with all that she went through with loosing her mom and dad and along the not being able to see her sister, she was really brave especially with everything else that happens.

Ana’s Story is about a girl who was born HIV positive, and her mother passed away, when Ana was very young, giving birth to her baby sister. She has many secrets about herself and her family that she keeps to herself for many years. I like how this a true story about a girl growing up with HIV/AIDs. It makes the story more interesting. I would defiantly recommend this book to everyone! It is a great book.

Ana’s story was a great book. It is about a young girl who was born HIV positive. The story tells about her life struggles and about how much she wants her mom to be there to help her with these problems. Ana suffers from physical and sexual abuse. Ana was sent to a reform center where she meets Berto who is infected with that same virus. Then become friends and then they fall in love. They ended up taking their love too far and Ana got pregnant with a beautiful baby girl named Beatriz. Then after that her world changes and has to go through more life problems. I strongly suggest that people read this book.

**** I really liked this book. It’s about a girl named Ana who is born with HIV. I like that it was based on a true story. In the book it talks about Ana’s struggles with HIV, and abuse. She meets a boy who changes her life and she gets pregnant and faces a lot of problems. This was a really great book and I would recommend it to anyone.

****I loved this book. I read this book in two days. Even tough, Ana was only seventeen years old; she did more growing up then some adults do in a lifetime. She lost both parents to AIDs, when she was very young. She was diagnosed with HIV and took medicine for it very day. Her abuela( grandma) told her to keep it a secret and not to tell anyone. Ana meets a boy name Berto, who is the first person to expect Ana, for who she really is. Ana goes thought a lot of hardships from living with numerous family members, going to school and not wanted anyone to find out her secret.

**** Ana’s story is and excellent book. I would have to say it was my favorite book that I have read so far. There were many parts in the book that anybody could relate to in some way. The book is about a girl who has HIV, she was infected by her mother at birth. Her mom, dad, and baby sister pass away from it. When she goes to live with her grandmother she is told that she is never to tell anyone her secret. When things go down hill she has to go live in a home where other children who have nowhere to go live. When she is there she meets many people, but there is one person named Berto that is special to her. Berto ends up leaving the home, and Ana gets transferred to where he is now. She loves her new home, but when her and Berto start a relationship things for both of them go bad. I would recommend this book to anybody that loves a book that they can relate to in someway.

I thought that Ana’s Story was a fairly good book. It is a true story written about a young girl who was born with HIV. Ana got it from her young parents who also had HIV and they died from it. This left Ana alone with her younger sister Isabel. In the quest to honor her father’s wish Ana moves into a couple different homes with family members but ends up having to move away again because of abuse. She ends up in place she would never have expected with people she never expected. This is a good story but I found it hard to get into. It just really didn’t hold much interest for me. However, I do like the idea of the book and the story it tells.

**** Ana's Story is an amazing book. It is a true story about this girl named Ana who lost both of her parents to AIDS. She finds out that she herself is HIV positive. This book speaks about her life struggle and all the obstacles she has to encounter. Isabel, her sister, and herself move between family members and reform centers to find somewhere to fit in. The end of this book is heart-warming. I reccommend this book to everyone.

I really liked this book it really caught my attention and helped me realize how kids like that would be treated if they had HIV/AIDS. I don’t like the way they were treated and I would never treat someone with HIV like that. I liked that there was always something going on in the book and that it always kept you guessing. My favorite part was when she and Berto met. I read the book in one day and I would strongly recommend it to anyone. It’s a great book.

Valisa M said...

***I thought Ana's Story was a really good book. It shows all the hardships that people live with HIV/AIDS have to do through and the hardships of having an abusive and non-loving family. If you read this book I'm sure you'll love it. I don't know anyone whoes said that they don't like it.

**** Ana's Story is a story about Ana who has HIV and she has some problems at home, so then she is sent to a reform center. When she is in the reform center she meets this boy named Berto who a few weeks later is moved away, but he promises to save Ana and move her to where he will be going. After a while Ana is moved to where Berto is at. Berto and Ana's lives change forever because of them being together. To find out what else happens I would suggest you read this book.

Katherine Roth said...

Ana’s story was a good book. It was about a young girls struggle with AIDS. Both of her parents die from AIDS and the only immediate family she has is her sister Isabel. She lives with a few relatives for a while which she got molested and beaten by. Then goes to live at a reform school where she meets her first love, Berto. He moves to a home for people living with AIDS and helps her get in. While she was there she found out something that would change her life forever. You will have to read it to find out more and I promise you wont put it down.
