From School Library Journal
Grade 6 Up This fine collection of short stories will delight those who enjoy this genre and may win it some new fans. Each story is written by a different, well-known author of young adult literature (including Konigsburg, Springstubb, Greene, Pearce, Aiken, and Lowry). Five of the stories are new, and the four previously published stories are well worth having duplicated in this volume. Each concisely written story moves in a different way to engage readers in a dramatic moment in an ordinary young person's life. These well-written stories will be enjoyed by the general reader, and they can also be examined profitably in literature and writing classes. Segel's brief introduction highlights the essentials of a good short story, and each story is introduced by a well-put question or statement to focus the reading. A short biography of each author is included at the end of the book. Virginia Golodetz , St. Michael's College, Winooski, Vt.
