-Came home from vacation to this beautiful book of the amazing children, men, and women with alopecia. So happy to be a part of this amazing project. The book documents the many lives alopecia has touched and how truly beautiful these human beings are on the inside and out.- - Kimarie M.

-I have to tell you that I'm very impressed and -MOVED- by your book... So happy that I got to you before end of conference and sale and got a copy. (So like me to wait to the last minute before closing up shop. - but I always seem to make it!) Reading it story after story and really absorbing the impact. Sincere KUDOS!- - Leo F.


-During decades of living with the hair loss condition alopecia, Graham had neither met nor heard about anyone else with it; she thus began chronicling her journey and reaching out to others like her. Now, in this beautifully photographed collection, Graham provides a thorough guide to the different types of alopecia and its triggers and treatments, also sharing numerous stories of those affected. Graham gives her story first, documenting the initial moment of discovery (her mother combing Graham's hair in the bath), diagnosis, coping, and ultimate cultivation of community. Many strong voices are poignantly captured, along with evocative black-and-white portraits: law student Marlina, who thought alopecia would limit her romantic life, but is now married to a -hunk-; Heather, who tattooed a sunflower with a peace sign on her head; artist D.K. Wright, who tells his story in a poem, and Alexis and Vangelis, a father and son given an extra connection by both having alopecia. There are many heartwarming accounts from young children, always accompanied by a parent's commentary. Interspersed among the personal stories are inspirational quotes on specific topics such as -Pushing the Limits,- -Realizations,- and -Unconditional Love.- This is a powerful compilation of profiles with a sincere and encouraging message.- Publishers Weekly (BookLife)
