The thirteen stories address the transitional moment when we pass from the last stage of our childhood into the first stage of our adulthood. The stories illustrate how a key event in our lives can force us to change our understanding of the world.
One gives us a glimpse of the start of a murder mystery, another shows the way people cope in places alien to them as well as to us. One shows the reactions when we are witness to others secrets., another finds that being gay brings an unexpected danger, while one covers adult hypocrisy and another facing up to bullying.
