Taylors story is just one narrative from the assembly of distinctive characters who inhabit this inventive collection of teen short stories, and readers will find the other characters just as compelling.With warmth and immediacy, Brenna expores adversity from a variety of angles. Many protagonists in this collection face serious life issues: loss, family violence, autism, Down Syndrome, and marginalization by a society that judges without really seeing. From a boogie-boarding Australian who finds community in surfer culture to a young Cree girl with a unique gift, the twelve stories that comprise Something to Hang On To vary in time, place, and perspective and share important messages about courage and finding your way.
