Reviewed by Nikolas T. for Teens Read it First
Full Disclosure by Camryn Garrett is a fictional novel that follows Simone Garcia Hampton’s passion for musicals, and through her struggles of being HIV positive. The 17 year of Simone like all teenagers is extremely intruiged by sex, but the only problem is she is HIV posistive. When she meets Miles, she immediately likes him, but she is scared that he will leave her if he finds out about the HIV. Full Disclosure taught me alot about HIV, and what people who have it live like. Throughout the book, Simone is constantly fearing that her secret will get out, and that gives a sense of panic and worry when reading. Simone has two gay dads as well, so she is adoped; along with her HIV she is treated inferiority by adults and her peers. Simone showed resilience and strength in the face of adversity, and that is in my opinion why the book is excellent. The build up to the climax brings us readers a feeling of fear and panic, and the climax itself allows us an insight of how horrible and ignorant people can be. Overall, I would rate this book ⅘ stars because it really shined a light on HIV and how a person deals with it, but I would enjoy it more if the book was longer and had more details about Simone’s history and background. Full Disclosure was a really great book, it taught me a lot about HIV and how it affects a person’s life.
This book is so good! It is about a queer teen who is HIV positive who has two dads. There is theater, drama, and heartfelt conversations. Do yourself a favor and read this book!
