Looking for a book about MS for a newly diagnosed 15 yr. old

She wants some interesting books to learn more about her MS. Maybe something written by a teen or written specifically for teens. She was not interested in Nancy Davis or Teri Garr books that I got. Anyone know any others?

I recommend "Taking Control of Multiple Sclerosis" by Prof George Jelinek MD. It is not by a teen but has been descibed as "the most exciting book I have read in some time" and " this book has the potential to transform the experiences if people dealing with MS". I agree with that.
A readers review say :
This is a remarkably positive book among the gloom of MS. It allows sufferers to take decisions for themselves that will change their lives for the better and give them well-founded hope.

I was bought a really inspirational book by my sister a few years after I was diagnosed it called The Winning Spirit" Life Lessons Learned in Last Place. It's about a MS patient who runs the New York marathon and every year she finishes last but doesn't let it stop her from doing it the next year.
