Hokey? Check.
Sentimental? Check.
Overly-dramatic? Check.
Somewhat silly? Check twice.

Yes, it's all of the above, but these stories are really sweet, if read in small doses. I like to read the shorter ones to my students so they can see life is not all about Grand Theft Auto and Cell Phones and MTV and cans of Red Bull: it's about helping others, feeling happy, and being caring and concerned young adults.
