This week’s book:
Title: Fresh Ink
Author: Lamar Giles (editor)
Publisher: Crown Books for Young Readers
Publication Date: August 14, 2018
Summary (from Goodreads): In partnership with We Need Diverse Books, thirteen of the most recognizable, diverse authors come together in this remarkable YA anthology featuring ten short stories, a graphic short story, and a one-act play from Walter Dean Myers never before in-print.
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. This collection will inspire you to break conventions, bend the rules, and color outside the lines. All you need is fresh ink.
This is one anthology that I am really eager to read. There are so many of my favourite authors represented in this book that I am not sure how I will wait until August to read it. Also, the format of this book is quite intriguing, and the fact that it incorporates a graphic novel and a play is so exciting!
