I thought this was an anthology of short stories by teenager, with the assigned topic of their first job. This is not the case. It is an enjoyable collection of teens facing the hallmark of young adulthood with work. Whether trying to get a job or getting fired for the first time, the motives of all of the teens are different. Some are droning, some are educational and enlightening. Although I enjoyed ten of the fifteen stories, this is well worth the read. If you ever had a first job, you'll identify with these teens.
