I brought this book on vacation with me and finished all of the stories before I even arrived at my destination! I adored a good deal of the stories and enjoyed a good deal of the rest. The ones that stuck out the most to me were Grand Central Park, Daphne, Somewhere in My Mind There Is a Painting Box, A World Painted by Birds, and Grounded. These stories were unforgettable and are absolutely must reads for any genre.

This is a really great book. Like any anthology, it's a mixed bag, but none of the stories were actually awful. For being about the same topic, there are a remarkable number of genres represented in the book: poetry, urban fantasy, myth retelling, bildungsroman, magic realism, folktale retelling, and even a hint of Arthurian allusion in the last tale.
