"Each story has a strength and point of view different from the others. The result of all these stories together is more than the sum of their parts, but a call to both sexes to think and respect each other more. Fortunately, Flake's handling of her theme is not didactic and paternalistic, but shines with an awareness of the real-life social, emotional, and physical pressures that teens feel about dating."Flake, Sharon G. is the author of 'Who Am I Without Him? Short Stories About Girls And the Boys in Their Lives', published 2007 under ISBN 9781423103837 and ISBN 1423103831.
