"During adolescence family dynamics change and teenagers often view parents as obstacles rather than supports. Teens wrestle with a range of crises from parental divorce to drug use. Even moving can cause major disruptions, since teenagers rely heavily on their peer group to help them through this time of change and self-discovery. Physical changes have an obvious impact. So does the death of a loved one, so do matters involving race... All these issues are dealt with clearly and candidly as college students remember what they went through when confronting the many physical, intellectual, emotional, and social changes that occur during adolescence." --P.  of cover.
The women of Torah grew up at a time when gender roles were rigidly defined and girls were considered women at an early age. Still, the Torah hints that young biblical women faced challenges similar to those that teenagers encounter today: first loves, burgeoning identities, developing sexualities, and blossoming spirituality. Building on textual sources, Deborah Bodin Cohen has created a collection of midrashim about the teen years of 10 women in Genesis that will resonate with 21st-century readers. Lilith's Ark melds text, biblical commentaries, and historic details about the ancient world with the experiences of modern girls and women and the author's own imagination. A discussion guide for each story enriches the reading experience. This is a book that will speak across time to the anxieties and aspirations of today's growing girls.

These lively fictional tales offer an unusual perspective on Iranian life and society. Told by a high-spirited, intelligent, willful (if sometimes insecure) teenage girl, they recount incidents in her daily life in Iran in the 1970s before the Revolution. Without any ideological "message," they present human interest and social comment. Their central characteristic is humor, from slapstick to subtlety, which can be easily appreciated across cultural boundaries. As we meet Suri's immediate family, distant relatives, and friends, we are discreetly introduced to upper-middle-class society in an Iran undergoing headlong westernization. The contradictions between this process and traditional Iranian mores are particularly well depicted. Much writing in recent years has been concerned with the 1979 Iranian Revolution and the rise of Islamic fundamentalism. This volume reminds us that there is always an ongoing human dimension largely unaffected by political and religious changes. Another feature is the homogeneity of this collection, created by one author and interpreted by the translator.

It has been my observation that most everyone enjoys a good story. It doesn't matter the subject or place as long as it is interesting enough to read. A good story doesn't have to prove a point, set an example, or provide a lesson, but it must feed the imagination, touch the heart or stir the reader's curiosity. Some of these stories may stray from the truth while others touch reality. Some are just a figment of the imagination while others are strange, true and believable . A story can be whatever the reader wants it to be.
