Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 8 Up—This collection of 15 short stories is intriguing, thought-provoking, and surprising. Each tale is written from a teen's perspective, and the settings range from the recent past to modern-day to both the near and distant future. Taken together, the selections address almost every area of a young person's life, including dating, siblings, parental expectations, sexuality, and planning for the future. But they go beyond teen issues, exploring larger truths about loss, cruelty, race, bigotry, and war. The book ends with a personal history of the author and her own struggles, not only as an author but also as a gay woman. These tales are written in a compelling and readable style. VERDICT Although short story collections do not currently enjoy the popularity that full-length novels or series do, this book is one that almost any teen will connect with.—Tara Hixon, Piedmont High School, OK

Review

“Teens will find much in common with the characters in this collection of stories spanning back to 1984. Kerr’s finely crafted tales capture both real-life and otherworldly dilemmas in tones both earnest and satirical. The traditional teen love story is turned on its head in “Do You Want My Opinion?” where sex is practically mandatory and sharing one’s innermost feelings taboo. Deep questions of inheritance plague the protagonist of “Like Father, Like Son” when a foul-mouthed kid comes to live with a family who doesn’t share his proclivities. Perhaps most haunting of all, “I Will Not Think of Maine” addresses the aftermath of love and death. Stories are told with the immediacy of youth but also with a slight cushion of reflection, just enough so that young readers can begin to appreciate the insight that distance brings. Educators should take careful note of this collection, as the issues raised by the resolution of their situations (or lack thereof) will get even the most reluctant readers chatting. Kerr’s unique characters are not easily left behind.” —Booklist

“Intriguing, thought-provoking, and surprising . . . This book is one that almost any teen will connect with.” —School Library Journal
 
Praise for M.E. Kerr
“Kerr at her provocative best.” —School Library Journal on Gentlehands
 
“The characters ring true, every one; the dialogue has vitality and humor; the book has an integrity of conception.” —Chicago Tribune Book World on Dinky Hocker Shoots Smack!

“A brilliantly funny book—full of wit and wisdom and an astonishing immediacy that comes from spare, honest writing.” —The New York Times on Dinky Hocker Shoots Smack!

“Kerr’s honesty, evident respect and consistently on-target wit will keep Dinky’s contemporaries laughing and nodding agreement.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review of Dinky Hocker Shoots Smack!

“[Kerr’s] talent is abundantly evident. Wildly humorous and, at the same time, touching.” —Publishers Weekly on Dinky Hocker Shoots Smack!
 
“Among the most convincing lesbian characters in young adult fiction, Evie makes a lasting impression, and Parr himself, the loving but conflicted brother, is just as finely drawn and memorable.” —School Library Journal on Deliver Us from Evie
