Rating: ★★★★★
My Review: I don't read many anthologies but this one is one that I decided to snag up and I am so glad that I did. This collection of stories was eye opening to say the least and empowering at the most.  You will see the world through another eyes and be better for it. You will fail and succeed with each story and cry when it's over. This book is just over 250 pages and I could not believe the depth that each story had.  I wished that this would have been close or over 500 or so pages and I would love to have these stories as fully fledged tales as well.
