True Side of Me

The Untold Stories of our Lives

An inspiring and enlightening collection of stories written by students in a high school credit recovery program. This book is the culmination of the Success Stories Project, in which the class explored definitions, attributes and examples of success and failure. A nuanced understanding of success is represented in their raw and honest words: loved ones overcoming addiction; young women raising children without support; finding love; dreams of graduating high school; and the realization that failure does not bar someone from succeeding.
