Genre: Short Stories

This collection of short stories covers different topics that relate to teenagers. Topics about death, friendships, love, hate, and more are covered in this collection. The stories are written in a way that the reader can relate and understand each one by itself and also appreciate it as a whole collection. One of the stories that stuck out is called Priscilla and the Wimps by Richard Peck. It's a story about bullying in schools. Most young adults can relate to being picked on, bullied, or feeling scared while in school. This short story shows that even bullying has a price and can't go on forever. This is just one example of the stories that are in this collection. Young adults can read this collection of short stories and connect to at least one of the stories that has been selected.

Rochman and McCampbell did an excellent job selecting short stories from different perspectives, subject areas, and genres. I do not usually read short stories but I couldn't stop reading this collection. The stories are easy to relate too yet have a deeper, subtle meaning that connects with the reader. Those who like Who Do You Think You Are? may also enjoy the full book that some of the short stories were selected from, such as This Boy's Life by Tobias Wolff or The Things They Carried by Tim O'Brien.
