Yasi s grandmother Yasi s been learning to cook the delicious meals her grandmother prepares all the while trying to get up the nerve to share about who she is sexually to her grandmother A lovely message with a sweet ending A Stranger at the Bochinche Daniel Jos OlderA beautifully written if strange story A stranger in a bar the mysterious appearance of overwhelming smoke and a missing notebook that holds secrets designs for flying machines rising fears that things may become very dire indeed A Boy s Duty Sharon G Flake 5 StarsHis father blamed his teachers for giving him dreams that extended beyond the boundaries of their farm But it was my father s binoculars and the almanac that pulled me away from the farm first It s how I got the notion I wanted to be a mapmaker plotting out every planet and star in the sky Four years later I m sitting at the Lucky Linda Caf homelessLoss homelessness bittersweet and lovely One Voice Melissa de la Cruz It begins with a young Filipina girl s car being tagged A big middle finger and a particularly shocking phrase smack in the middle of my Monday morning reminding me that even at a prestigious cosmopolitan university the one you had worked so hard to attend someone will try to make you feel like you re an imposter In part this is about the effect this has on this girl how difficult it can be to reclaim that feeling of safety where safety is your normal frame of mind where walking across a parking lot or across a campus doesn t make your heart leap in fear at each sound In part it is about the differences in relationships with the police or security authority figures that non white people have vs whites In part it tackles the way Asian women are viewed and objectified by men Paladin Samurai Gene Luen YangI m not much for graphic stories but I know there is an audience for this This is about a young Japanese boy who wants to be a Samurai in his DD campaign but it is not allowed Reading this on my kindle since this is an ARC the font is really tiny about this big so trying to read this was difficult for me Catch Pull Drive Schuyler Bailar 5 StarsIt s in those few sacred moments before he enters the school as a new person that he hesitates Born female but having just announced to the world via Facebook that from here on he will now be male and his new name is Tommy The first thing he sees walking into the building are two doors marked with words that identify not just the doors but the people who enter them MEN WOMENThis was written by the first openly transgender NCAA Division I swimmer per Wikipedia and thecrimsoncom as well as the first publicly documented NCAA D1 transgender man to compete as a man in any sport he also served on the Transgender Visibility Panel to advocate for the Trans Bill MA before the Massachusetts State Senate Super Human Nicola Yoon 5 Stars The Los Angeles Times headline the day after he saved her read BLACK SUPERMAN SAVES GIRL which incites a flurry of commentaries CNN decides he should be referred to as African American another points out that if he was like Superman he was from another planet and therefore not human never mind African or American Meanwhile two years passes and the seventeen year old black girl is convinced that she must be the one to reason with this Black Superman as he his vision of saving humanity has become darker and he s no longer sure they deserve saving Another one I loved just enough superhero fantasy story to appeal to a large group of people with a story that was heartbreaking I ve read other books by Nicola Yoon and enjoyed her writing before so I expected this to be good and it surpassed my expectationsAltogether a fine collection of stories to enjoy and reflect on and while this is targeted for Teens YA I think it could be enjoyed by almost all ages I haven t rated all of these individually but I ve noted the ones I considered 5 Stars but none are really less worthy it s just a matter of what types of stories you prefer Overall I consider this a 5 star collectionPub Date 14 AUG 2018Many thanks for the ARC provided by Random House Children s Crown Books for Young Readers
