She thought she'd found love, but lost her life to AIDS Fourteen-year-old Nancy thinks she's found true love with Collin, a handsome college student. She trusts him completely, but he rapes her and leaves her infected with the HIV virus. As the virus ravages her body, Nancy pours out her deepest feelings to her diary-from the romance of first love to the cruel realities of AIDS. Near the end of her life, Nancy decided to make her private thoughts public, in the hope of saving others from the same tragic fate.
