Dolores by Bruce Brooks

Dolores: Seven Stories About Her by Bruce Brooks - 135 pages

This book contains seven short stories about the girl Dolores throughout her childhood and teen years from ages 7 years to 16 years.  It includes stories on attempted kidnappings, divorced parents, first kisses, and high school cheerleading.
I enjoyed reading this book.  I had seen it for years on the shelves here at the library and finally picked it up when it was a candidate for weeding last week.  The stories were all very short but contained a lot of character development and plot.  There was no real connection between stories.  They are merely snapshots of events in her life.  I would probably suggest this for older kids as the last story does involve her being taken by man wanting sex (she does get a way without anything untoward happening to her).
