An inspiring true story of a young womans battle to overcome rheumatoid arthritis
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 promising tennis career, was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). 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's brilliant account of both her tennis-mad childhood and battle to live with RA is an uplifting, humourous and heart-warming story. Here is a story of how, armed with courage, she left behind a world she loved to overcome the pain of a degenerative disease.
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.
A compelling tale, told with wit, charm and frankness that is absolutely unputdownable.
Another Alice is dedicated to Alice's mother and father.
