In these 10 short stories, readers are introduced to various characters trying to find their way through circumstances life has thrown at them. These stories span the range of teen feelings and, though short, are ones to which readers will be able to relate. Read the rest of the review on my blog: http://shouldireaditornot.wordpress.c...

This eclectic collection of emotional tales run the gamut from poignant to tragic to unexpectedly humorous, just as the emoticons on the cover imply. The stories are perfect for teens struggling with conflicting emotions and the author's insightful questions are sure to make for thoughtful classroom or group discussions and even essays. I highly recommend this for teachers.
