"Price check on register 3."  As so it begins.  A typical day in the life of a supermarket worker.  Have you ever wondered about those teenagers that you see all the time in the local supermarket?  Wonder about what their lives are like?  Come along and meet some of the kids and find out.  Meet Louise, the Employee of the Month.  If you see her in Aisle 1, you would have no way of knowing that she works nights at the hospital and that she is studying to become a nurse.  Or that she comes from a dysfunctional home.  And then there is Adam on Aisle 2 whose main goal today is to get fired so he doesn't have to work here.  Little by little, get to know the kids and how this band of dissimilar kids can become a unit.
SUBJECTS:     Supermarkets -- Fiction.
