Book Review: Don’t Kill the Birthday Girl by Sandra Beasley


I’ll be honest, this book caught my attention because of the title. It is a true story about a girl who grew up with a lot of food allergies and it also talks about allergies in general and theories and treatments and how life with food allergies has changed over the years. I found it particularly interesting because the author was born in 1980 and all the awareness and information that is around today regarding food allergies was not really around back then. I do not have any food allergies so this book gave me a glimpse into the life of someone who has to be extremely careful of what they eat and touch for fear of a reaction. I would recommend this book to anyone with food allergies or is close to someone with allergies or just wants to get a glimpse into the life of someone with food allergies. My only warning is that it was copyrighted in 2011 so a lot has probably changed since then and some of the facts, treatments and theories may now be outdated however the stories she shares from her life will remain unchanged.
