Cassandra is hassled by her friends for sitting with the “wrong” kids at lunch. Jennifer gets harassed because she’s overweight. Dwan’s own family taunts her for not being “black enough.” Yen is teased for being Chinese; Jamel for not smoking marijuana. Yet all of these teens find the strength to face their conflicts and the courage to be themselves. In twenty-six first-person stories, real teens write about their lives and teenage peer pressure with searing honesty. These 26 first-person stories will inspire young readers to reflect on their own lives, work through their problems, and discover who they really are.
