Diagnosedat17: Comments

I’m getting feedback about Diagnosed at Seventeen from readers who either can’t or don’t want to leave an Amazon review, so I’ve created this page to give them another option.

The following comment was made by a reader and gave me permission to post it.

“I think the RA foundation should offer this book to newly diagnosed patients. It shows that, although life-altering, a person can live with RA, persevere and have a happy life.”

Now it’s your turn. What did you think of the book? An enjoyable read? Boring? Or just okay? I would like to know your opinion, good or bad. A great review would be awesome 🙂 But, please be honest. You can leave your comments below.

  1. I thoroughly enjoyed reading Diagnosed at 17! It was a real perspective to the life struggles that come along with having RA, yet also to the joys that can still come from your situation. I appreciated that Ms. Spoonemore was honest and willing to share her story as it can be used to inspire others in similar situations. I would say that there were a few parts that I felt might be ‘out of order’ when it comes to following a progressive timeline, but that didn’t stop me from wanting to continue reading on. I think it is a beautiful thing for someone to open up and share their testimony and journey with God because this book especially was such an inspiration the entire time I read it!

  2. While reading Diagnosed at Seventeen, I laughed, I cried, and I asked myself “how in the world did Ruthie get through it all”? I could not put the book down. I wanted to read more and find out how she handled her struggles both physically and mentally. Ruthie is a true inspiration and her book will touch your heart just like it did for me and my family.

    I wanted to let you know that I took your book on my vacation a few weeks ago and thoroughly enjoyed reading it. I feel it gave me a rare opportunity to look into the life of someone I work with and to see how events formed that person’s belief system, and how someone can overcome circumstances that would have overwhelmed most people. I knew you were a strong individual but didn’t fully appreciate what your life was like before I met you. Thanks again for writing such an inspirational book. –Bill.

  4. I recommend that everyone read Diagnosed at 17, whether they are struggling with RA or not. It is a wonderful book that motivates me to live every moment to the fullest. I appreciated how Ruth Spoonemore opens her heart to her readers and shares her biggest struggles and pain along with her deepest joys. Ms. Spoonemore writes with vivid details which quickly draws the reader into the story. Her deep faith and trust in God in every situation is inspiring.
