Additional Information

Sierra Sandison, Miss Idaho 2014, is best known for launching the #showmeyourpump campaign and proudly wearing her insulin pump on the Miss America stage. Sierra now travels the country, speaking at schools, diabetes conferences, and keynoting at various events. She tells audiences of her journey from diagnosis to the Miss America stage, and spreads her message of overcoming adversity, as well as loving the things that make us unique, rather than hiding the things that make us different. Now, with the launch of her new book, Sugar Linings: Finding the Bright Side of Type 1 Diabetes, she hopes to send a new message: one of hope and positivity for diabetics and non-diabetics alike. She tells her story, and also discusses the positive sides of living with type 1 diabetes: finding strength, making connections, and sometimes even forming priceless friendships with others facing similar challenges. She discusses how diabetes can help one discover his or her passion and a way to make a different in the world, develop a greater ability to show compassion and empathy, and other sugar linings that can make each of our journeys with diabetes a little less gloomy. By illustrating the sugar linings that can hold true for anyone--not just the ones unique to becoming Miss Idaho--Sierra aims to bring hope to those who may be facing a new diagnosis, and anyone else who may have a cloud casting an uncertain, but daunting forecast for his or her future.

This book was fantastic! I would definitely recommend this to any diabetic, someone who knows a diabetic or someone who may just want a good book to read! Sierra hit every diabetic feeling, every low point, every high point, everything. It was nice to read about some else's journey in such detail and know that some of the things that I sometimes feel like only happen to me happen to others too. I loved the whole thing about how meeting and knowing other diabetics makes you feel like you're not alone because sometimes on bad days (and even on normal days) I feel like I almost obsess over the fact that people like Sierra, Nick Jonas, Charlie Kimball and Ryan Reed are diabetic too. Like yeah it's a part of us but it doesn't define us but also without it, I may not have ever heard of Miss Idaho 2014 or rooted for my favorite racecar drivers. Diabetes is a crazy, stupid disease but it brings us all together because we all share a bond that nobody else truly understands. Love you Sierra... Read more
I would highly recommend this book. I wasn't expecting a lot of substance with this skinny little book but Sierra does a great job voicing so many issues faced by diabetics. My daughter has had T1D since she was six years old and I learned things in this book that she has never been able to articulate to me (how lows really feel, feeling different from others) My daughter who is now 11 read the book first and related to everything but in particular the selective eating disorder. The best thing about this book is how Sierra barely acknowledges the dark clouds of diabetes but chooses to focus on all the blessings it has brought to her. What a great role model - thank you Sierra!
As someone who has suffered from type 1 diabetes for 20 years, trust me, this book is a life changer! Thank you, for not trying to 'educate' me on the disease that I fight on a daily basis. This book helped me to realize that yes, my life has a plan, and for whatever reason, diabetes is part of it!
