The stories in this collection are a handful of literary gems that provide emotionally resonant insight into the obstacles and victories of today’s teenage girls. The challenges the protagonists face range from a mother in the late stages of cancer, to a brother intent on passing his own pain on to his sister, and to a cousin who possesses extraordinary beauty. While the stories are, at times, intense, they are also deeply honest and hopeful.
