About the Book:

In partnership with We Need Diverse Books, thirteen of the most recognizable, diverse authors come together in this remarkable YA anthology featuring ten short stories, a graphic short story, and a one-act play from Walter Dean Myers never before in-print.

Careful--you are holding fresh ink. And not hot-off-the-press, still-drying-in-your-hands ink. Instead, you are holding twelve stories with endings that are still being written--whose next chapters are up to you.

Because these stories are meant to be read. And shared.

Thirteen of the most accomplished YA authors deliver a label-defying anthology that includes ten short stories, a graphic novel, and a one-act play. This collection will inspire you to break conventions, bend the rules, and color outside the lines. All you need is fresh ink.

This title releases August 14, 2018


AUTHORS INCLUDE: Schuyler Bailar, Melissa de la Cruz, Sara Farizan, Sharon G. Flake, Eric Gansworth, Malindo Lo, Walter Dean Myers, Daniel José Older, Thien Pham, Jason Reynolds, Aminah Mae Safi, Gene Luen Yang, Nicola Yoon

Noteworthy experiences while reading this book: I do not generally like anthologies but this one was very good. I will start checking out more from these authors as well as other books of this type.  However, I would have liked it more if it would have been longer. 

Do I Recommend this book? Fans of fandoms will love this one!! There are so many diverse stories in this one as well. There really is something for everyone.  

Notes and Opinions: This is one of the last ARCs that I picked up from ALAAC18 and I am very happy that I did.  I am not one to read anthologies but I am excited about others now.  This one was so good. Each story is short but full I do wish that the book overall would have been a little longer.  As it sits it is a little over 200 pages.  

My favorite story is Eraser Tattoo and Meet Cute. I hope that some of these short stories become fully fledged ones. Especially my two favs.   The editor of this one talks about how this book is full of different stories and he is so right. This book has a story for everyone and I could see this one in high schools.  

I also think that it would have been interesting to create a movie out of this one where all the stories converge and overlap.  

If you are looking for a book where there is a story for everyone as well as well paced and short check this one out!
