What’s your secret? It’s an obvious question to ask after sharing one or more of the short stories in this collection developed around the theme of secrets. And the secrets revealed here are fictional explorations of the kinds of secrets we all may keep or struggle to reveal: some truth about ourselves, our lives, our families, our fears, or things that threaten us. Secrets are often seen as a way to protect, but they are also a means to harm. Sometimes there is such a web of deceit that determining the truth is impossible. Sometimes, someone else’s secret is a burden hard to bear. Fifteen diverse authors have contributed to this collection of stories, offering a range of styles and subject matter in a volume that invites exploration and reflection. (Age 13 and older)
