13: Thirteen Stories That Capture the Agony and Ecstasy of Being Thirteen

Thirteen is an in-between age: no longer a child, but not yet an adult. It's a time of sudden changes, like bodies, moods, and friendships. The twelve stories and one poem, by diverse authors such as Bruce Colville, Ellen Wittlinger, Meg Cabot, Alex Sanchez, and Lori Aurelia Williams, may not reflect every thirteen-year-old's life, but it does capture their feelings with humour and sensitivity.
