This is a brilliantly conceived collection of short fiction by highly visible writers already known to readers of young adult literature. The stories are as different from each other, and as individually amazing, as the authors. The collection was developed to stimulate exploration of religious thought, rather than to persuade, and it contains a dozen fictional explorations of faith, spirituality, or wonder. Teenagers acquainted with even one novel by any two or more of these fine writers will know that they offer a wide range of cultural understandings and writing styles. (Ages 12‑15)
