Jr. Tales: Stardust

Leeba Lichtman

My nose was tickling outside the door, but I held back the sneeze; I had to hear this. They were talking about me

Ruchama Schnaidman

They wanted me to have enough soda to drink to my heart’s content, and actually had a soda machine installed in my house

Imagine a world without computers. Without cell phones and social media. Does that sound deliciously wonderful or woefully awful?

 

Incredible Ways

DMCs: Tatty’s Girl

As told to Leah Greenburg

I was on my best, most helpful behavior around Sarah, but I could feel with a certainty that Sarah didn’t like me from Day One

 

The Hazards and Hilarity of Teenhood: When My Married Sister Moved In

Malka Hillelsohn

Sometimes, even when you can’t change things, there are ways to help you cope with what you can’t change without feeling all that yuckiness inside of you

 

Silver and Gold: Chapter 48
