A collections of today's best young adult novelist yet. This book has all the things your looking for in short stories. Each story particularly Stupid perfect world by Scott Westerfeld caught my attention because if your like me and love to read sassy, futuristic stories that change point of views you'll enjoy this portion of the book. It's about a guy and girl name Keiran black and Mary they both take a class that's called Scarcity. Scarcity is a modern day history class except its focus is on diseases and illness. Anyway, Keiran and Mary have to pick a illness from our time to research and live for a week. Keiran, being a regular slacker forgets to pick one and makes one on top of his head. He picks sleep, in there time the have this suit sort of thing called a "bioframe". A boiframe controls your emotions, body, activities, behavior, and temperature. Keiran thinks sleep would be the easiest because he doesn't have to give up any thing important to him. Mary picks her hormones and emotions. Sooner or later they get in over they're heads and start acting weird. Keiran and Mary start developing feelings for each other because Keiran has to listen to Mary before he can "sleep" and Mary starts writing poems. The ending is a bit predictable, but he the story is only 50-56 pages. Make sure to read the other books as well.
XOXO Esther

"Sleeping with the Spirit" is a good, interesting story. I liked it but it was kinda sad.
"Stupid Perfect World" is a weird story. I could not even finish reading it because I was so confused. I had no idea what the hell was going on. I thought it was really strange and I didn't like it.
"Thinner Than Water" is a sad story. I felt so bad for poor Robbie. I don't usually like fantasy stories, but this was kinda interesting, but I still really hated the way that it ended.
"Fan Fictions" is blah. Paige is pathetic. End of Story.
"Love Struck" is a really good story. It's the best of all five stories. I really liked it and it had a very nice ending.

    Alright

    The first chapter was good, but the second was so confusing! I hated the second, so I stoped reading.

    TERRIBLE LET-DOWN

    When I saw the authors of this short story book, I had to get it. Many of these writers happened to be my favorite. Let me just say right now that these writers are truly incredible and I mean no disrespect to them - in novels. The beginning would usually be slow paced and building like a novel but then a strange (and completely unrealistic/who saw that coming?/ bad imagination) twist would come and ruin it all with a hasty, incomplete ending. Sadly, I am disappointed. However, since it is so forgettable, I will say that it is very good for rereading. I would highly recommend some of these authors work in novels. (See recommendations below.)
