Happy Sock Sunday! Wow, it’s been so long since, I’ve done a Sock Sunday. I’m reading a lot but I’ve been on VACAY Honestly, it’s hard to blog when you are traveling. I plan a lot of my content ahead of time but I’m a MOOD-Y reader and I can’t plan Sock Sunday Posts’ for that very reason, I might not actually be reading what I’m claiming if I did that. I’m really all about transparency! Anyways, I’m currently reading Fresh Ink. It’s one of those books that have multiple stories in one by different authors. I know this book isn’t on my current reading list but a friend of mine gave me this book and I thought that I would give it a shot. Since, she said it was really good! Okay, I have one more month before school starts and I am really trying to finish reading all the books on My Summer Reading List. I think I can, I think I can! (That reminds me I have a few book reviews to finalize and post.)
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 about topics like gentrification, acceptance, untimely death, coming out, and poverty and ranging in genre from contemporary realistic fiction to adventure and romance. This collection 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, Nicola Yoon
