Fresh Ink: An Anthology

Lamar Giles, editor

Giles has assembled 13 selections featuring ten short stories, a graphic novel, and a never before in-print one-act play from Walter Dean Myers. The collaboration represents the diversity found within current YA fiction and includes entries from the most recognizable authors writing today such as Melissa de la Cruz, Sara Farizan, Eric Gansworth, Malinda Lo, Daniel José Older, Jason Reynolds, Aminah Mae Safi, Gene Luen Yang, and Nicola Yoon. This powerful collection examines a wide array of characters and situations and what ties the stories together are the vivid descriptions of food, language, and cultural norms that will appeal to teens from all walks of life.
