Unfortunately Howe only wrote the introduction of this book so me setting out to read more of his work didn't get much from this book in particular, however his introduction was enough to make me want to read this book in my free time and will come back to it after I've read his others. Seems like it will keep me engaged just like "Totally Joe" did. I believe I've found my new favorite author, Dave Pelzer step aside. ( )

The stories were cute, my favorite was Angel and Aly! That one I found very insightful. ( )

Do you remember what it was like to be 13 years old? These 13 short stories will tell about the problems, drama, questions, and realities that young adults are facing. Decisions made in the stories are not always the best ones, but readers are given the chance to think about how they would handle the situation.

I would recommend this book to parents, teachers, and young adults to help each age group think about what is going on in a 13 year olds life. I liked some stories better than others, but the ones I did not care for will relate or spark a response by others. ( )

If thirteen is supposed to be an unlucky number...you would think a civilized society could come up with a way for us to skip it.
