Description
Whether it is basketball dreams, family fiascos, first crushes, or new neighborhoods, this bold short story collection--written by some of the best children's authors including Kwame Alexander, Meg Medina, Jacqueline Woodson, and many more and published in partnership with We Need Diverse Books--celebrates the uniqueness and universality in all of us. "Will resonate with any kid who's ever felt different--which is to say, every kid." -- Time Great stories take flight in this adventurous middle-grade anthology crafted by ten of the most recognizable and diverse authors writing today. Newbery Medalist Kwame Alexander delivers a story in-verse about a boy who just might have magical powers; National Book Award winner Jacqueline Woodson spins a tale of friendship against all odds; and Meg Medina uses wet paint to color in one girl's world with a short story that inspired her Newbery award-winner Merci Suárez Changes Gear. Plus, seven more bold voices that bring this collection to new heights with tales that challenge, inspire, and celebrate the unique talents within us all. AUTHORS INCLUDE: Kwame Alexander, Kelly J. Baptist, Soman Chainani, Matt de la Peña, Tim Federle, Grace Lin, Meg Medina, Walter Dean Myers, Tim Tingle, Jacqueline Woodson "There's plenty of magic in this collection to go around." -- Booklist, Starred "A natural for middle school classrooms and libraries." -- Kirkus Reviews, Starred "Inclusive, authentic, and eminently readable." -- School Library Journal, Starred "Thought provoking and wide-ranging . . . should not be missed." -- Publishers Weekly, Starred "Read more books by these authors." -- The Bulletin, Starred
