Heather Armstrong was in love. She was also very tall. She was also very ugly (her words). In this tale of middle school infatuation, love is a battleground and your friends aren't who you think.  In the end, Heather prevails in one of the funniest stories to come to the Worth Repeating Stage.

Katie Kilpatrick's story is about how fierce you have to be to be a Mom. This tale takes us through not one, but two high-stakes births, where Katie may lose a child or herself in the process.  Along the way she talks of fear, confusion, and a lot of time in the neonatal intensive care unit.

Gregory Valdez' parents always wanted him to be a scumbag in a suit, that is to say they wanted him to be a lawyer. Greg ended up in advertising. As a profession--it fits him well. It fit him almost too well when he first started. His reverence for Mad Men's Don Draper led down a road of lying to himself, letting down loved ones and above all drinking. He would find himself alone, unemployed, and looking for a change.

Inga Cotton is best known for her collection of large hats and her blogging in support of charter schools. This story is sort of the orgin of that. (The blogging, not the big hats.) 

Inga's deeply personal story deals with her son's autism diagnosis, and shows how being a parent means having to adjust expectations, to push your kids, and somtimes, to fight.
