Summaries and Reviews
During one summer day, the lives of ten teenagers intersect in the most surprising and unexpected ways, from a girl who finally meets the convicted felon she has been corresponding with to a drifter who is searching for a place to call home. description: Product Description:

Over the course of a single summer day, ten teenagers in Salem, Massachusetts, will discover important truths about themselves and each other. There is Nicole, whose decision to betray her best friend will shock everyone, most of all herself; Kelly, who meets the convicted felon she has been writing to for years; Maria, whose definition of a true friend is someone who will cut her. Then there is Sadie, a chubby eleven-year-old whose mother forces her to wear a " please don`t feed me" sign stapled to her shirt; while Joy, a fifteen-year-old waitress hoping for true intimacy narrowly escapes a very dark fate. Derik discovers that his usual good looks and charm won`t help him hold onto the girl he wants, while nineteen-year-old drifter, Mearl, is desperately looking for a place to call home. Sean is torn between his loyalty to his girlfriend and the possibility of finding something more with her friend, while Ginger`s single-minded pursuit to bring down her nemesis only proves that they may be more alike than she thought. Seamlessly woven together, this incredibly powerful and compelling collection of stories chronicles the very real trials of today`s teen experience.
