Today my name is colorful.
Yesterday my name was dead souls.
Tomorrow my name will be lively spirits.
My friends think my name is fire.
The police think my name is burden.
My parents think my name is symphony.
Secretly I know my name is anything I want it to be.

This is a wonderful anthology of teen voices. Some are more well-written than others, but they all paint a real portrait of the diverse issues of teens in their own words. Read full review
