Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The BANR 2011, besides having the most interesting and fun short fiction, non-fiction and assorted other offerings, is unique in its creation, being the product of lots of time and effort by high school students. They have chosen a little something for everyone: a wonderful essay about Roger Ebert, two funky and interesting story length cartoons, many short stories that make you think, and, of course, the best "wikileaks revelations" of 2011!! Based on your personal taste, you may not like everything in this book, but I know you will like a lot of it. Let's hear it for non-required and fun reading!!

There are only 2 or 3 stories that I didn't find engaging. This is 1000 percent better than all the other short story books I have read in the past several years.
I just read the true story by and of James R Spring and his avocation of finding lost children south of the border. ( You can google him and read about him and his past-time.) Just an example of the variety of well-written stories in this book.

This one is no exception. We enjoy these books every year; they include wonderful whimsical lists as well as beautifully written short pieces.

At a loss as to what to read, I chose this although I prefer novels that allow me to get into character development.
This had everthing you could want. Characters who have stayed with me since I read it (the young female chess player,
the Burmese refugees) fiction, non-fiction, even cartoons.
