Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Teens from New York-based Youth Communication pen autobiographical essays about their struggles with bullies, anger about bad home situations and unfair treatment, and pressure to conform or be successful. While not graphic or overly profane, their well-written stories are often harrowing to read, with frank accounts of abuse, neglect, sexuality, and crushing loneliness . . . What is most striking . . . is the teens’ resilience as they seek aid, learn coping strategies, or find outlets for self-expression.”—School Library Journal
