Abstract (Summary)

Young Ones is a collection of short stories about young adult narrators navigating interpersonal relationships. In this collection, both males and females living in the Pacific Northwest interact with family, friends, and lovers. Through these interactions, they come to discover aspects of themselves at crucial moments in their lives. Many of these stories are less concerned with plot and more concerned with inner truths about relationships and selves. These revelations occur through epiphanies at the end of the stories, and the settings help provide subtext. It is my hope that these stories provide further depth to the young adult genre.
