Description
 
Set in the 1980s against a backdrop of the AIDS crisis, deindustrialization and the Reagan era, this book tells the story of one individuals defiant struggle against his community--the city of Kokomo, Indiana. At the same time as teenage AIDS patient Ryan White bravely fought against the intolerance of his hometown to attend public school, one of Kokomos largest employers, Continental Steel, filed for bankruptcy, significantly raising the stakes of the fight for the citys livelihood and national image. This book tells the story of a fearful time in our recent history, as people in the heartland endured massive layoffs, coped with a lethal new disease and discovered a legacy of toxic waste. Now, some 30 years after Ryan Whites death, this book offers a fuller accounting of the challenges that one city reckoned with during this tumultuous period.
