In life, especially in your teenage years, situation after situation forces you to examine yourself in a new light. Was it really me who came up with a game that got out of hand so quickly? Or who preferred taking a late-night midsummer hike with a taciturn total stranger over spending time with friends at a girlfriend’s cabin? Did I really have the courage and the nerve to stand up to a classmate’s bullying? When will I ever find the words that I lost when I lost my brother?

Kadri Hinrikus’s short stories about teenage self-discovery invite young readers to consider what they would do and how they’d behave on life’s hazy margins.
