We all see things differently, we hear words or tones that may or may not have been implied. Sometimes, the things we decode are completely different from what they really are. But who knows what really happens? The truth is, there are two sides to every story, and while the key points may be the same; it's interested to see just what changes and what those small changes can imply or do to us.
In Girl Meets Boy we read from a host of talented authors, they pair up and write the same story...from different view points. This collection of stories is an eye opening experience, showing us just how differently we see the world and the stories it holds for us.
Each story has an event that is the same. In one tale, a squeaky Kung-Fu boy cheers wildly for the star of the girls basketball team. But the difference is how the following acts are taken. When she turns and points to him was it out of embarrassment and the sudden urge to silence him? Or was she taken back by his excitement, does she want to know more about him?
Look through the eyes of girls and boys as they meet and chat, fall in love and run away screaming, check out what happens when Girl Meets Boy!
