The Worst Years of Your Life

Email a Friend
The Worst Years of Your Life says it all. The stories in this fiction anthology capture all the worst parts of adolescence – the angst, depression, puberty, and embarrassment. Adults can be thankful that these years are far behind them, and adolescents can be reassured that they’re not the only ones struggling. Editor Mark Jude Poirier and writers Victor D. LaValle and A.M. Homes weigh in on their worst experiences.
