I'm just one of the authors who collaborated on this anthology edited by Ann Angel (Rise Up Singing). The lineup is truly stellar, and includes Jacqueline Woodson, Ron Koertge, Tim Wynne-Jones, and many others. Each story turns on a universal ache for self-acceptance and a confusion about image. When teens talk about beauty, they talk about their lives; this strong collection, which includes a reader's guide, is a great place to begin the wide-reaching discussion.
BOOKLIST: Wild, funny, and thought-provoking, this anthology's stories, contributed by well-known authors for teens, challenge readers to reconsider their notions of beauty.
