School Library Journal : Gr 4-8--This thorough and well-written book offers a detailed explanation of the hereditary disorder focusing on symptoms, treatment, and screening. The authors explain that although sickle cell anemia is most frequently seen in Africans and African Americans, it is also found in the Middle East, Mediterranean, and Caribbean. The text is clear and well organized, with sections on gene therapy, diagnostic techniques, research, and even ethical concerns about the possible use of fetal tissue in treatment. Informative black-and-white photos and graphics complement the presentation. The question-and-answer section, glossary, and list of Internet sites will be useful for further research.
