Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Getting a new haircut. Surviving clothes shopping with Mom. Losing a beloved uncle to AIDS. Hearing the band Nirvana for the first time. These are just a few of the experiences that inspired this book's young authors to sit down and write. In thirty-five frank and intimate personal essays, they express their views on serious issues like violence, racism, and teen parenting, as well as common teen experiences like dating, getting first job, and starting college. Their stories resonate with their desire to discover who they are, through the written word, and to share their discoveries with their peers.

Synopsis:

"Impressive in their candor and poignancy. Sometimes funny, sometimes heartbreaking.... a rich and varied collection."--

Synopsis:

35 essays written by teenagers, plus writing and revision techniques.
