An anthology of short stories: Laugh, love, and cry with eight girls in their teens. Slip into their lives and experience the ups and downs. What would you do if you were the one meeting these real life challenges? Your beloved grandmother forgets more than she remembers. A guy you meet on the internet begs to meet you in person. An emergency arises while you're babysitting. Your parents decide they're no longer compatible. The secret to popularity eludes you. Your best friend starts shoplifting. You need to prove every girl has a perfect love match. An anonymous guy keeps sending you romantic poems and gifts. These girls meet challenges with determination and triumph.
If the sun smiles upon a rain shower, a rainbow appears.
Without challenges, there would be no triumphs.
Without rain, there would be no rainbows.
Happy Birthday, Deirdre. We're sorry to tell you this, honey, but your mother and I aren't compatible.
My dad moved out today. He and Mom have been quiet the past few days, and I learned it was because they're separating but didn't want to tell me until after my birthday. It's 3 days past so I guess they thought it was time. You'd think they'd have discovered their differences before now. I mean, they've been married eighteen years. I'm sixteen. And now, they're not happy? Maybe it's just a phase they're going through. I hope.
School started this week and I'm so busy, I don't miss Dad quite as much, but it's not the same without him. I'm embarrassed to talk to my friends about my parents. So I haven't told anyone. I keep hoping...if I pretend everything is okay, maybe it will be.
