Description

True Stories by Teens About Cliques, Conflicts, and Overcoming Peer Pressure

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 find the strength to face their conflicts and the courage to be themselves.

In 26 first-person stories, real teens write about their lives and teenage peer pressure with searing honesty. They will inspire young readers to reflect on their own lives, work through their problems, and learn who they really are.
