Closing the Door on Pain. Opening the Door to Hope. Following in the footsteps of the nationally recognized We Are Absolutely Not Okay and You've Got It All Wrong, this third true story collection by Scriber Lake High School students explores painful secrets: addiction, incarceration, sexual identity, broken families, abuse, poverty, and death. By giving readers an inside look at the life struggles they've faced, these students are closing the door on painful pasts and opening doors to hope and happiness. Through their personal narratives, they are also reaching out to other teenagers, to let them know they are not alone and that life gets better.
