The collection of short stories that appears in Life Happens is not candy-coated. These stories depict teenage life as many teenagers live life. Included are drugs, happiness, alcohol, answers to questions, success, hormones, sex, timidity, death, contention, humor, confusion, friendship...life. The characters are from diverse backgrounds and encounter life's obstacles in different ways. Adolescence should not be black-flagged; it should be embraced as a stepping stone to adulthood. And many times, certain kids need some guidance over those stones. Therefore, it is the hope of the author that teenagers read these stories, think about the characters, their desires, actions, and mistakes, and make good decisions in their own lives.
