Short Story #267: ID by Joyce Carol Oates
Author: Joyce Carol Oates
ReflectionIt's a haunting adolescence story. Beyond the fading of youth, this is more like the corruption of adulthood. It's a story that captures wells the direct and echoing effects that adults and parents have on youth both at times knowing and not knowing. Oates gives us a sad and damning look at the life of teens that's worth remembering for folks who deal with troubled youth (or all youth for that matter).
