Some of the stories will sound like experiences you or your friends have had in real life; others will expose you to people and situations you are not familiar with. You can learn something from both the stories that seem familiar, and those that are about people in different situations than yours.

It's important to understand other people’s points of view. This is a very important understanding if you are to get along well with family and friends. Getting along well with friends is probably becoming more and more important to you at this stage of your life. This book will show you different students’ points of view and how they go about their lives.
