When I Was Your Age, Volume Two
Original Stories About Growing Up
author/anthology editor: Amy Ehrlich
"Tell me a story of when you were little," children everywhere love to ask. In this acclaimed collection, ten award-winning, well-known writers comply by reaching across their own childhoods to those of their readers. Whether telling of growing up in Japan or upstate New York or the California coast, recalling The Great Depression or World War II or the 1950s, describing children’s victories or heartaches, the writers of these stories make it clear that despite the difference between one childhood and another, all children share a complex humanity and a deep capacity for joy.
"Ehrlich offers more of a good thing in this second volume of memoirs of adolescence by renowned, contemporary YA authors." – Publishers Weekly (starred review)
