When the dismissal bell rings at the end of a long school day, ten different kids fly out of their seats, ready for the walk home. As the middle-schoolers hit the city streets, they each get a chance to tell their story. Ranging from a laugh-out-loud discussion about boogers to one kid’s poignant worries that their parent is going to die, these ten stories highlight all the different directions our journeys home can take. Your young readers will be moved by these ten unique stories by one of the most gifted writers of our time as they discover that, while we might walk a similar path to others, life is different for each and every one of us.
