FRESH INK: AN ANTHOLOGY (US Only)

Edited by: Lamar Giles

Release Date: August 14, 2018

Publisher: Crown Books for Young Readers

About the Book:

Careful—you are holding fresh ink. And not hot-off-the-press, still-drying-in-your-hands ink. Instead, you are holding twelve stories with endings that are still being written—whose next chapters are up to you.

Because these stories are meant to be read. And shared.

Thirteen of the most accomplished YA authors deliver a label-defying anthology that includes ten short stories, a graphic novel, and a one-act play from Walter Dean Myers never before in-print. This collection addresses topics like gentrification, acceptance, untimely death, coming out, and poverty and ranges in genre from contemporary realistic fiction to adventure and romance. It will inspire you to break conventions, bend the rules, and color outside the lines. All you need is fresh ink.

AUTHORS INCLUDE: Schuyler Bailar, Melissa de la Cruz, Sara Farizan, Sharon G. Flake, Eric Gansworth, Malindo Lo, Walter Dean Myers, Daniel José Older, Thien Pham, Jason Reynolds, Aminah Mae Safi, Gene Luen Yang, and Nicola Yoon.

I'm a big fan of anthologies for the variety in viewpoints, and in this case, in format and genre. (A graphic novel! A one-act play!) I'm disappointed that this giveaway no longer accepts entries on the listed expiration date (as opposed to that date being THE LAST DAY on which entries can be submitted).

As a woman on the autism spectrum who works in a library, I have both personal and professional investment in respectfully-diverse books.

Publishing has a depressingly poor record regarding its treatment of ability. Characters with disabilities are frequently described via ableist terms and assumptions, but in this case, they simply seem absent. Maybe I'm wrong, but what struck me is that nothing in the synopsis communicated to me that ability is included in the anthology.
