Central Stories is a series of interconnected stories about students at a fictional high school. Each story focuses on a pair or small group of students who are grappling with issues of gender identity, sexual orientation, and changing friendships. These stories explore varying aspects of the coming out processes, as well as attendant character-developments related to adolescence.
