Nikki Gemmell, Kate Holden, Liane Moriarty, and many other women writers present funny, quirky, and revealing stories about surviving their teen years Remember your high school formal, your first love, first kiss, first bra, and the first time you realized your parents weren't always right? Relive the joys (and the horror) of adolescence with 50 inspiring and accomplished writers, as they reveal how they survived those challenging years. Whether they're writing about adolescent angst, first crushes, being a rock groupie, battles with anorexia, or deciding to become a nun, these women prove that while the teenage years are not necessarily the best, you can survive to tell the tale. The result is a wonderfully funny, moving collection of memories told with honesty, insight, sensitivity, and humor. No two experiences are the same, because while some girls don't have a care in the world, real or imagined, some girls do.
