Highly original first person accounts that bring honesty and humor to the complex dramas of teenage life today: “slut-shaming” on the Internet, stop and frisk by police, living with sickle cell anemia, and trying to beat the odds of graduating while black and male. The judges called this series of audio pieces candid, raw and compelling.
