“Ten Real-Life Stories” is a book of mostly personal life stories. Most are about goals people have accomplished, or important events in their lives. Some stories are sad, and some are very practical stories with advice for people who read them. When we were reading the stories, there were some things we could relate to as adults, but we think younger people who are going through struggles might enjoy seeing how others have accomplished a lot. For example, there are stories about getting an education in spite of obstacles like discrimination or difficulty learning, and advice about what to expect in college. Some of the early stories in the book were about negative things that had happened, for example bullying or drinking and driving, and for some of us in the group, these stories were too much to read about. But the book has previews before each story, so you can read it, and decide if you want to read that story. The ones towards the end are very inspiring. You can skip around and read the ones you want. The level of the stories varies, but we would say it seemed medium hard.
