The Asking and Other Stories

The Asking and Other Stories
By: Charles G. Timm
ASIN:  B0058PJ080
Published April 13, 2011
Available Format:  ebook

My Rating: ★★★★★

Synopsis from Goodreads:  Seven short stories, intensely concerned with young people at the heart of change, struggling to do the right things in moments of surprising revelation, when life alters, often in unrecognizable ways, and it falls to the young to win back love, rescue friends, stand against the crowd, be the voices in the chaos, in lives as meaningful as those of any adult.

This is a beautifully written collection of short stories.  Each story shows the reader a progressively older protagonist making important decisions and changes  through each stage.  These vignettes all about growing up are definitely worth checking out!
