When my DD was first diagnosed, she wanted to read books with diabetic characters in them. She tried several popular ones (Babysitter's Club,etc.) but in every book, the characters were passing out from low BGs. It was NOT what she wanted to read when dealing with the emotions and fears of a new diagnosis. Then we found the RPM series by Chris Fabry. Books #3 and #4 contain characters that just live normally with diabetes. They were written shortly after his own son was diagnosed with Type 1. The books are well-written with lots of cliff-hangers. We highly recommend them! The main character of one of his adult books, Almost Heaven, also has Type 1.
