This is a lovely ten story anthology of diverse authors, mostly contemporary ( one historical tale by Grace Lin.) Standouts for me were Kwame Alexander’s funny, off-beat, superhero story, Matt de la Pena’s tale of a summer of basketball and (my favourite) Jacqueline Woodson’s lovely, poignant vignette. I also really enjoyed the cute coming-of age LGBTQ-themed Christmas story by Tim Federle and Tim Tingle’s Bigfoot tale. But all the stories are worth reading and this anthology is a great introduction to some of the best children and YA authors out there.
Also recommended Open Mic, another fabulous, funny anthology that highlights diverse voices and experiences.
