Fifteen of the most distinguished and award-winning authors for young adults draw upon their own experiences to create fictional stories that explore adolescence: everything from dating and love, the meaning and boundaries of friendship, fitting in, and measuring up to finding the courage to believe in oneself.
Each story was specially commissioned for this collection, and includes an introductory essay by the author explaining the story's origin in the author's life--and its significance.
