About the book
Great-grandma’s Hair Loss Remedy is the story of eight-year-old James. He has alopecia universalis. There is meagre knowledge of the condition in the community at large. This worries James, especially when he has to face new situations, like moving to another school. Fortunately, he is surrounded by a loving family and, with their support, James is able to overcome anxieties and emerge happy and popular.
There is a question and answer section about alopecia at the end of the book.
