Three out of every four children enjoy a good enough childhood, and manage to successfully navigate the transition from adolescence to adulthood-emerging as sane and well-adjusted human beings. However, the remaining one in four of our children are ill treated, abused, brutalised and abandoned through circumstances beyond their control. The 26 short stories contained in Glimpses are all based on fictional characters and scenarios, but nevertheless, the kind of circumstances displayed in the stories are true to life. Glimpses gives us a snapshot into the lives of youth discarded by family and friends and classed as social problems. Teenagers are shaped by experience - what happens when these experiences affect them negatively? Declan Henry uses these stories to show the reader that there are reasons for problematic behaviour and reminds us of untapped potential in the youth of today.
