Open Mic: Riffs on Life Between Cultures in Ten Voices

17262283

This slim collection of stories about life between cultures by a stellar collection of kid lit/YA authors has been on my shelf for a while. Today I picked it up and read it on my commute and I’m so glad I did. The stories told here made me laugh (yes, out loud!) wince in shared discomfort and grin in recognition.

A must for library collections–would also work brilliantly in classrooms/workshops. There’s even a teaching guide but don’t let that put you off. Bold, succinct, hilarious and real. Bonus: I’m now going to seek out every one of these authors to read more. 11+
