STORIES OF STRUGGLE by Aryton James Wise is all about realism. Starting with "The Man in the Challenger," Caroline is faced with an old friend after her boss harasses her. Chris, a successful actor, struggles to see the same issue as Caroline does and things get out of hand. Next, in "Control," Alissa goes to her first college party with her friend, Casey. After meeting two very nice guys, the party takes a turn for the worse and Alissa ends up in the one place she never thought she'd be. Last, "The Storm," takes a step back with Sam and James who discuss college, moving on, and the harsh reality that is grief.
