Synopsis

Ten stunning short stories explore the dark and light sides of teenage lifeBy turns suspenseful and absorbing, wrenching and poignant, these ten short stories illuminate love, loss, and betrayal: A young man must come to terms with his alcoholic father; a teen girl faces an unexpected pregnancy; and a brother must confront his evil twin. An exploration of sexuality threatens disaster, while a love triangle leaves its biting mark. With these masterful tales, Lynch leaves the reader thinking about his characters long after his stories end.
