This book was a nice quick read. I was able to actually read a story a day at lunchtime break. I thought it was written well; there was no profanity or adult language. This book kept me interested in the stories becuase these stories make you think about then when you find yourself in a situation. I could relate back to one of the stories in the collection as I was looking for a dresser these last couple weeks for a project. At the local thirft store, while looking thru their dressers I totally remembered this one story. I like it when a book can leave that imprint on you! This is why Im giving it 5 stars.
