The latest TODAY Book Club pick is "Positive," a memoir by Paige Rawl, who was diagnosed as HIV-positive when she was in middle school. 

At 15, while battling depression in the wake of the bullying she faced, Rawl attempted suicide by taking one pill for each year of her life. 

Fortunately she survived, and at 19 she is now an advocate and mentor helping to educate kids about the dangers of bullying and spreading awareness of HIV and AIDS.

"Positive" tells how Page Rawl battled bullying and fought her way back from her lowest low. The new memoir, published by Harper Collins Publishers, hit bookstores on August 26.

Read along with TODAY viewers, sharing your reaction to the book on Twitter via @TODAYsBooks and the TODAY Book Club Google+ community. Be sure to follow the TODAY Book Club newsletter for the latest information.
