Twelve short stories by writers and artists of color and Indigenous creators provide contemporary readers with a diversity of protagonists, styles, and formats. Here are culturally authentic heroes for all readers, characters that reflect specifics of identity that will provide essential reflection and affirmation for many. “I hope you find one who looks like you, or thinks like you, or feels like you,” writes editor Lamar Giles. “If not, I hope you find glimpses into other worlds that are both respectful and enlightening.” The contributors include Jason Reynolds, Malinda Lo, Eric Gansworth, Aminah Mae Safi, Walter Dean Myers, Sara Farizan, Daniel José Older, Sharon G. Flake, Melissa de la Cruz, Gene Luen Yang and Thien Pham, Schuyler Bailar, and Nicola Yoon. (Age 12 and older)
