Award-winning writer, Shirley Ullom, shows us why teens give us hope for the future. These short, perceptive monologs reveal the humor and strength of teens as they deal with a wide range of situations and dilemmas both poignant and funny. Death, divorce, dating and dieting--violence in schools, gangs, dreams and dumb stuff--it's all included in a mixed collection of monologs for performers of all types. Excellent for classroom or speech contests, auditions or discussion starters. The monologs are divided into three sections: Guys, Girls and Girls or Guys. Sample titles: To Tell or Not to Tell, Fast Food Junkle, Girls Are the Superior Sex, TV Addicts, Shaping Up, Mom's Not Around Anymore.
