Publisher Comments:

Guys and girls get together, get played, and get real.

Who Am I Without Him? is a Booklist Top Ten Romance Novel for Teens and is "breaking new and necessary ground"* in twelve short stories about guys and girls falling in and out of love and relationships, testing out ways to communicate with one another, respect each other--and respect themselves.

This is a complex, often humorous, and always on-point exploration of today's teens determined to find love and self-worth . . . any way they know how.

Synopsis:

There is "The Ugly One," whose only solace comes when she is locked inside her own head. In "Wanted: A Thug," a teenager seeks advice on how to steal her best friend's bad-guy boyfriend. And then there's Erika, who only likes white boys. Sharon Flake takes readers through the minds of girls trying to define themselves while struggling to remain relevant to the boys in their lives. This is a complex, often humorous, always on-point exposition of black youth resolving to find self-worth . . . any way they know how.

I read the first chapter and I was hooked. This book is a great find, and a great read for teens and parents of teens. I plan to use it to start a program for teen girls at my place of business. That's just how powerful the messages are in these stories. Don't think twice about buying this book for your teen daughter or for yourself if you are wondering what teens are going through.
