This is a collection of short stories written by high school students and what their life is like where they live. It also includes a brief explanation of what happened to them after the first publication of this book.
The fourth anthology compiled by Hanging Loose Magazine, this is a collection filled with stories that are true, down-to-earth, and heartfelt. The compilation is done well, and high school students seem well-represented by this small group of stories and poems.
Readers who like realistic fiction, poetry, and short stories will enjoy reading WHEN WE WERE COUNTRIES.
