One of my favorite stories was Slamming on the Brakes by Michael Barbato-Dunn. In the story 16-year-old Josh Brantingham is abducted by aliens, and one of his biggest regrets is the fact that he was abducted just a few days shy of getting his learner's permit. He does also reflect on some of the other things that he misses, such as his parents and his friends and playing games. But for a young man one of the most important milestones in his life is getting a learner's permit and learning to drive and eventually getting his own car. Every young boy fantasizes about all the things that he will do once he is able to drive.
The aliens don't hurt Josh in fact they find him quite amusing, and he perpetuates the image of him being a clown all the while trying to figure out a way that he can get escape. When he finally manages to steal a shuttle, he heads out into space not knowing where he's going or where he's going to end up. When he approaches what is called Planet C, he sees a smudge of blue green with swirling patches of white and then he slams on the brakes.
One of the standout fantasy stories is The Silent Princess by Emily Martha Sorensen. This is a comedic retelling of the fairy tale The Frog and the Princess with a delightful twist at the end.
This is a great book to keep on hand to read a story or two while waiting in a doctor's office or in the car-pool lane at school. All of the stories are well-written and the book is professionally presented.
I will be reading the next book in the series when it comes out.
It's also a great way to get to know a bunch of new authors in a quick read.
