Fresh Ink

By Various Authors

A product of the We Need Diverse Books collaboration, this book features 13 standalone stories from Melissa de la Cruz, Sara Farizan, Eric Gansworth, Malinda Lo, Daniel José Older, Jason Reynolds, Aminah Mae Safi, Gene Luen Yang, and Nicola Yoon. Each story deals with different issues teens face like gender identities, sexual identity, race, ethnicity, friendship, love, and more. Stories are well-written and engaging. The topics are timely and include elements such as science fiction, historical fiction, and comedy for readers who prefer other genres. This is surprisingly well-developed for a short story collection and each author pulls the reader into their tale. Fans of the authors or those who are interested in social justice will enjoy reading this book.
