Editorial Reviews

Review

“There’s plenty of magic in this collection to go around.” Booklist, Starred

“A natural for middle school classrooms and libraries, this strong collection should find eager readers.” Kirkus Reviews, Starred

“Inclusive, authentic, and eminently readable, this collection of short stories is an excellent addition for libraries and classrooms.” School Library Journal, Starred

“Thought provoking and wide-ranging, this first anthology from WNDB should not be missed.”
Publishers Weekly, Starred

“Whether or not middle-schoolers read the afterword . . . they are sure to agree that they need to read more books by these authors, whose storytelling styles and genuine feel for adolescent struggles and triumphs will inspire them to seek out their other work.” The Bulletin, Starred

From School Library Journal

Gr 4–6—This anthology, published in partnership with We Need Diverse Books, presents 10 short stories from a stellar list of authors: Kwame Alexander, Matt de la Peña, Jacqueline Woodson, Soman Chainani, Grace Lin, Walter Dean Myers, Tim Federle, Meg Medina, Tim Tingle, and Kelly Baptist. De la Peña's linguistically grooving basketball story will have readers swaying in their seats. Verbal roadblocks are hurled at the protagonist from the street-smart players inside the gym: he's too young, too skinny, too Mexican. His resolve yields multiple life lessons on and off the court. Woodson's haunting "Main Street" follows Celeste, the only girl of color in an all-white New Hampshire town, and her friendship with lifetime resident Treetop. Both are suffering from different losses: Treetop's mother has recently passed away, and Celeste isn't accepted in her new home. Their warm connection soothes their mutual pain and promises to last even after Celeste and her mother decide to return to familiar and welcoming New York. Each tale offers realistic and fully developed characters with whom a wide range of readers will identify. VERDICT Inclusive, authentic, and eminently readable, this collection of short stories is an excellent addition for libraries and classrooms.—Diane McCabe, John Muir Elementary, Santa Monica, CA --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
