Period Pieces: stories for girls
You may wonder if you're the only girl you know who doesn't have her period. Or you may feel excited about growing up. Are you confused about what's happening inside your body? Or do you feel silly as you giggle with your mom or friends about the pamphlets you're given in school?
In these frank and often poignant new short stories, twelve stellar authors explore the anxiety and excitement of "becoming a woman." Engaging, empowering, and sometimes hilarious, these stories show us girls who couldn't be more different -- and yet ultimately reveal that, in many ways, we are all the same (Amazon).
Period Pieces is a collection of thirteen stories by authors such as Erzsi Deak and Kristin Embry Litchman.
My piece is entitled "Betrayal".
