This book has many small stories in it about many different topic like crushes, bullying, death and even the choices we make. This book informs us that we have to be wise with certain situations and we have to have people earn our trust. People can seem to have our backs, but they could actually be someone who doesn't want to be your friend, but someone who wants to hurt you.

This was a good collection of inspiring stories for students at that awkward age. I liked that most of the stories were written by teenagers giving hope and inspiration to others.

Their different viewpoint w ...more

Although this is not the type of book that i read most of the time, but it definitely has an unusual, yet eclectic content with a strong sense of reality that i appreciated. This book is the collection of all the touching short stories by preteenagers from everywhere. although the stories are unique they all revolve around the same theme, which is the struggles of teens and the way they solved them.
I love most of the stories, i like the way that they are all short, the writers would tend to ju
